Everything you need is in the kit so installation was simple, especially when following the online video. I rebuilt from scratch so had no need to clone and as such all went smoothly to plan. Only observation I noticed was that boot time seems slower than my original 128GB drive but all the extra space is definitely a bonus.
Delivery of the product was excellent. This kit has everything needed to replace the original SSD. However, the cloning software did not work and I had to download a trial copy of Carbon Copy Cloner which worked perfectly. Because of this and the cost, I have deducted 1 star.
I love that this kit has the screw drivers, detailed instructions and a drive enclosure for the full drive copy (also now a handy 60GB external drive with the replaced drive installed in it). I must admit, the instructions mentioned using the recovery partition which my pre-installed Mac didn't have, but after a quick look on the forums led me to another free copy utility.
