I got to know the brand when I was searching for video tutorials about how to open my MacBook Pro case.
The OWC team has created tons of really awesome videos that make it hassle-free to replace any Mac components all by yourself. As thus, the above recommendations are my own opinions and I reserve the right to change my opinions when necessary. Also, it may make more sense to buy a new SSD laptop instead of spending money on upgrading components. Which SSD should you get? Here are some factors you should consider.
You can read our best portable SSD roundup for more. Although the price of SSD has been falling, the range still varies a lot. The volume of an SSD is one of the most important factors you should consider. In other words, GB is almost the base capacity you could choose from most manufacturers. This is because smaller drivers are often slower and more expensive considering the cost per gigabyte. Also, as camera technology improves, photos and videos often have much larger file sizes.
If you are used to syncing these files with your Mac, the chances are that your Mac will be filled up much faster than ever before. So, consider a GB or 1TB if you have a need for large storage. But not all SSDs are made equal. For those of you who make a living in fields like design, development, or workstation, etc.
For SSD manufacturers, another factor why brand matters is that quality and warranty. For example, during my research, I know Samsung makes its own SSD controllers, memory, and firmware, which gave me confidence that the company is capable of designing and putting together the entire SSD from start to end. For example, the most recent MacBooks are all with SSDs and they are blazing fast and based on 4-channel PCIe interface Source: 9to5mac , there is no need to upgrade unless you have particular reasons.

All you have to prepare is a USB flash drive with a large capacity because the file size of the latest macOS is not small. You can read this article on how to make it. This is the key part that you need to be extra careful. Any misoperation could damage your Mac. Fortunately, OWC has recorded a detailed instruction in this video. I highly recommend you watch it before you start. Now press the start button to turn on your Mac.
Hold down the Option key as soon as you hear the reboot tone. After that, use Time Machine to restore all the data. Do you really need to enable it? In my opinion, no. You can also watch this YouTube guide if you prefer a video tutorial. Just a kind warning: before you proceed, make sure you backup your Mac just in case. In the digital age, nothing lasts forever. All devices and hardware components have a lifespan. Eventually, they will be gone. An SSD drive is no exception. All we can do is try our best to extend its life and maximize the value.
Replacing the internal hard drive with a solid-state drive has been a great way to boost your Mac performance while spending less. Anyway, I hope this guide above has given you some useful directions. Your email address will not be published. Best guide so far.. Thank you for your article!
