5 out of 5 eggsGreat way to add storage to a Macbook Air

Pros: I'm using this in a 2010 Macbook Air. Very simple to install with the included materials. Copying the old ssd drive was easy with the external hard drive case provided. The entire process (copying files and installing the new drive) took less than 45 minutes. Being able to reuse the old ssd drive as an external is a big plus. The new drive seems faster, though I haven't run any tests to prove that.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Be careful when taking the back off of a Macbook Air. Many of the screws are super tiny and can get lost very easily. Also, watch the instructional video before installing. The video does a much better job of explaining the procedure than the written instructions.
