Very good SSD, beware if you have Macbook 12 or future Macbook Pro, you gonna need a USB-C 3.1 cable to get full speed, the USB-C cable came with Macbook only support USB 2.0 speed, and the only USB 3.1 cable I can find is this: http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-USB-...1_3&sr=8-3

Isn't this the one that required a bunch of non-standard drivers to be installed? And it doesn't support TRIM.

Looks like a nice cable but a bit expensive.

I think you provide more alternatives for high speed USB-C cable. I only used Apple, Anker and Google's, at this time we speak, those are all USB 2.0 data speed cables. even they claim to have capacity to delivery 100W charge speed.

Amazon has this for $147.99. Still a good deal though. I'm waiting for the 1 TB version to drop below $300 before I pull the trigger.

I had a netbook 2tb sata hard drive I took out of the case and installed into a desktop that worked out great(was on sale cheaper then buying the bare hd). Does anyone know if that is possible with this ssd drive? I have $100 dell gift that I have to use up and it would make this only $50 for me. plus the extra $25 promo gift card. But I want to remove it and install into a laptop.

This is all speculation, of course. HDD makes sense for all of them to be made the same way, external or not, simply because 99% of the drive has to be built that way regardless of where the drive ends up. The housing is there to protect and support the delicate mechanical parts inside. SSD would make less sense, because they don't really need a housing of any sort, and changing the assembly process to include a USB port instead of SATA would likely be an easier endeavor considering that all a SSD really is is a PCB with some chips on it and any powered USB port should be able to power an SSD without issue. I just can't see them bothering to add another part when it's probably just as easy to make the existing PCB work either way, they just solder different ports on it depending on where it goes... Either that or they make specific PCB for external drives only, just like they make PCBs specific to M.2 slots, etc... The chips can basically be slapped on a board of any shape or size or connection method, unlike a housing for a HDD.

I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

ya, that was why I was asking.. don't know if its worth for them to set up a whole new machine to add a limted quanity usb port, instead of buying a .50 adapter.

I think this deal is dead and should be marked as such, unless there's some trick to it.

I added it to the cart but didn't see any gift card automatically added.

Anyway, I know that it's small, and that's a good thing, but you can easily match this for less if you buy an SSD and put it in your own case, possibly even getting a longer warranty. So the question comes down to how important is the small size.
