512GB Solid-State Drive Kit for Mac Pro

  • Overview

    Solid-state drives have no moving parts and are capable of accessing data at speeds up to 215MB per second, which is up to twice the speed of hard drives. In addition, four solid-state drives working together combine to access data at up to 750MB per second. The result? Incredible performance at a range of data-intensive tasks, including up to 2x faster ProRes video encoding using solid-state drives compared with hard drives.*

    Mac Pro includes four drive bays, allowing you to configure it with up to 8 terabytes of storage using 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s drives, up to 2 terabytes of storage using high-performance solid-state drives, or any combination of each type of drive. The cable-free, direct-attach drive solution lets you install and remove drives in a snap. To install a drive, you connect a simple drive carrier to the hard drive, then just slide it into place - no cables or connectors to cause you hassle. Removing the drive is just as easy. Every Mac Pro ships with four hard drive carriers. This solution is perfect if you ever share drives among different workstations at home or the studio.

    System Requirements

    Requires Mac Pro (Mid 2010) and Mac OS X v10.6.4 or later.

      Work's perfect in Mid 2010 MacBook Pro

      I searched all over for specs on this and couldn't find them. It is a 2.5inch drive inside of an adapter for the Mac Pro. It works perfectly fine in the MacBook I searched all over for specs on this and couldn't find them. It is a 2.5inch drive inside of an adapter for the Mac Pro. It works perfectly fine in the MacBook laptops, as it is a 2.5inch 9.5mm high drive. It's the Toshiba with Apple firmware. So for all you guys out there that have told other people it won't work in a laptop your wrong. Also it does support Trim if you enable it, and it is definitely faster than the spinning hard drives. You won't go wrong with getting this.

      Perfect for MacBook Pro mid-2009

And it feels like I just bought a new laptop! It boots and shuts down almost instantly. And TRIM was enabled by default by Lion. I read extensively on the internet and was tempted to get another brand of SSD, because they cost a lot less. But in the end I went with this (much more expensive) option, and I'm completely happy with it.

      Word

      Solid States are great b/c you can put your operating system and all your applications on that drive then just keep all your music/movies/all other stuff on lar Solid States are great b/c you can put your operating system and all your applications on that drive then just keep all your music/movies/all other stuff on larger less expensive drives. I don't get the comment above (or below), since there are so many drive bays there's tons of rooms for storage and you don't need all the drives to be Solid States. Not now anyway, when/if they become the norm than sure but until then there's no need. Also you can get a solid state from so many other sites for half the price (if not more).

I used CCC to clone my HD to the SSD externally. Will need a SATA to USB cable, 00 Phillips head and Torx T6 screwdriver as outlined on the tutorial (google Upgrading Your MacBook Pro with a Solid State Drive, i can't post the link for some reason) Install was straight forward, started up using SSD as main drive with no issues.
