Thanks for your advice regarding changing my old MacBook Pro hard drive. I cloned the hard drive to your new OWC Solid State Drive which took about two hours, then removed the hard drive and installed the SSD in about 15 minutes. The Macbook fired up straight away and together with your earlier RAM upgrade now performs as fast as a new laptop! Good advice and great service. 500GB OWC Mercury Electra 3Gb/s 2.5-inch Serial-ATA 7mm Solid-state Drive Flexx Multifunctional USB 3.0 to SATA Adapter OWC Express 2.5 Inch Drive Enclosure (USB 3.0 & 2.0) – Black OWC 5-Piece Mini Toolkit
A useful bit of kit when swopping hard drives.
Regret I bought it. The cable couldn’t hold a stable connection whilst cloning HHD into SSD. So it failed.
Very happy with this cable that arrived astonishingly quickly and did the job I needed perfectly. This is an excellent company who give great customer service and supply Apple Mac upgrades that are great quality and cheaper than the competition. Highly recommended.
