Additional Issues Experienced:
1. (~Possibly Heat/Thermo Related) I could not figure out why my MacBook Pro was not sitting level on my desk(s). It was wobbling as if the case were warped. Turns out my MacBook Pro battery was Swelling to the point where it was bending the aluminum bottom cover!!! The Battery only had 380 Cycles and was reporting 90% Health. Researching battery swell like this usually comes back to overheating.
2. GarageBand Error: "Garageband Disk too slow"
3. A lot of issues moving data between VMWare Fusion and the Native Mac side. BEACHBALL ceasing all multitasking. Sometimes for minutes. Doing a VMWare Fusion VM Clean-up to "Reclaim Disk Space" same problem. (When this is happening iStat is reporting 10MB/s disk activity)
4. Got the "?" boot issue, they talk about on their support site
Note: Put back in factory Apple Dive and none of these problems exist.
I need my Mac to do TWO simple things. Run GarageBand/Logic well & Run VMWare Fusion well. With this drive, I am doubting its capabilities. I also don't like the fact BlackMagic Speedtest is incompatible with this drive.
Jury is still out with APFS and High Sierra...
------- Original Review Below -------
First, I am a big fan of OWC and their contributions to the Mac community. I have their Docking Station(s) and did a similar Aura/Envoy upgrade on an older MacBook Air without issues. I have had good experience with their (phone) Tech Support.
Also, I am the ultimate power user. I have built Hackintosh's from scratch, designed power supplies, owned a Computer Store in the early 90's. That said, this sort of upgrade is about as easy as they come... My use case for this was to give my 13" MacBook Pro plenty of storage for my dozen or so Virtual Machines/VMWare/Linux Distributions.
HOWEVER--- This 1TB solution has its short comings. First and foremost the HEAT it generates. As others have mentioned this will turn your Macbook into the ultimate "Hand Warmer". (More on this later) I had a bad Envoy enclosure as well.
Technical Shortcomings and (if you choose to use this product, how to overcome them):
1. This 1TB version is based on RAID-0 with I believe 4x256Gb NAND chips. While RAID-0 is nothing new, make sure you maintain regular backups as a failure of the controller or a memory chip will most likely result in a total data loss. I am guessing the RAID-0 is how it maintains OK performance
(Solution: Backup, Backup, Backup!!!)
2. Performance Oddness. This is slower than the Apple drive you are replacing. You CAN NOT use BlackMagic Speedtest or Diskmark to 'reliably' benchmark this drive. In those tools, I see abnormal pauses, and erratic results such as UNDER 10/MBs Random Read Writes. Since installing this, I notice longer pauses when launching applications, and more beach balls ~not horrific, but worse than stock. Also, I did a FRESH install of OSX
(Solution: To benchmark the drive you need to purchase the $20 Intech Speedtools Suite for Quickbench)
3. HOT HOT HOT! - Most SSD makers, like Samsung, publish operating temp ranges up to 70'C/158'F.
-My original/stock Apple Drive consistently ran at 42'C(109'F) while in the MacBook
-This Aura 1TB under NO LOAD runs around 60'C. Doing actual work on the machine, the Aura runs at that 70'C/158'F. This is with Apple's "default" fan profile of around 1300 RPM... (In case you didn't know, your very quite fan is always running at about 1300 RPM under light loads) I have seen temps hit 82'C/179'F in an Air conditioned 20'C/68'F office/room.
-*** That said my trackpad, keyboard consistently register 35'C/95'F to over 100'F!. *** Air Vent Temps around 50'C/118'F... <Sigh> :-(
(Solution/Work Around & How to Read Temp's = I run iStat Menus which gives me sensor reporting, fan speed, and the ability to create a custom FAN profile. In order to keep the drive under 60'C I have boosted the default 1300RPM to 2000RPM. This will obviously impact battery life if you are not plugged in...)
4. Envoy External Enclosure - QC Issues. My first one had the headers soldered on about 1mm out of alignment. When screwing down the stock Apple SSD in it, the lock-down screw would lock it down at a short-circuiting angle... The USB header was also slightly tweaked. OWC excellent tech support replaced the Envoy.
5. More Envoy Issues. This could be fall-out from the above 'shorting'. I was able to get my stock Apple drive to boot a total of 2 times before it locked up, and ultimately corrupted my stock drive. Disk Utility First Aid reports it as NON-FIXABLE. I can no longer "Option-Boot" it.
Finally, with the stock Apple drive inside the Envoy, and out of the Macbook's "Fan Cooling", the stock Apple drive also pushes 70'C inside the Envoy enclosure. <sigh> :-(
To Summarize: RAID-0 & High Heat may be a risky proposition. Envoy Quality Control Issues left me with a Corrupted stock drive. Performance can be erradic and will be slower than what you are used to.
I will keep the drive, and run my fan faster to compensate.
In retrospect, I would have been better off Velcro-ing a Samsung T3 to back of the display Mad-Max style and saving half the cost... :-|
Their service was decent but after returning 2 different ones of these (separate RMA's), they claim I didn't send them back some Torx tool and a pouch so want to charge me $130 + 15% restocking fee. So in addition to completely wasting my time with a horrible product, now they need a $100 pouch back. I will NEVER do business with OWC again.
Overall, a great - if pricey - upgrade.
