Transcend launches JetDrive SSD upgrades for MacBooks
Transcend has launched a new line of upgrade kits, the <a href="http://www.transcend-info.com/apple/jetdrive/">JetDrive SSD</a> series for the MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro. The kits offer up to 960GB of storage, and come bundled with necessary tools and guides, as well as five-year warranties. So that an original SSD doesn't go to waste, and/or for the sake of transferring old files, each kit also comes with an external USB 3.0 enclosure. <br /><br />JetDrive Toolbox monitoring software is needed for two reasons -- first to monitor the status of a drive, and second to enable TRIM support, which is essential for maintaining speed and longevity on an SSD. Transcend is claiming that its drives have maximum read/write speeds of 495MBps.<br />
<br />
Prices range between $190 and $600. There are three kit categories: one for early Airs, another for mid-2012 Airs, and the last for mid-2012 Retina Pros. The latter two offer 240, 480, or 960GB capacities, but the original Air is restricted to 240 or 480GB. 2013-model MacBooks aren't supported due to their using PCIe.<br />
