    JetDrive is perfect for keeping movies and iPhoto library from hogging up the MBP’s SSD, July 31, 2014
    By 
    Simon Kwan (Shanghai, China) –

    This review is from: Transcend 128GB JetDrive Lite 360 Storage Expansion Card for 15-Inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display (TS128GJDL360) (Personal Computers)
    Bought this for my 2014 a5″ MacBook Pro Retina. There are different versions of the JetDrive for different models of MacBooks, so make sure you carefully check compatibility before you buy. I got the correct version for my MBP, and it fits perfectly, extending only 1.0mm from the body of the laptop.

    Performance so far has been good. Read speeds are about twice as fast as write speeds. It took roughly 40 mins to copy a 21.3Gb iPhoto library onto the JetDrive, and about 20 mins to copy it from the JetDrive. Both situations were to and from an external hard drive, so it should be even quicker if you are going to or from the MacBook Pro’s built in SSD storage.

    My main use for the JetDrive is as a repository for my iPhoto library and other media files, such as movies. I don’t plan to store frequently accessed data on it, as it’s still nowhere near as fast as the MBP’s built in SSD storage. For those times when I’m stuck on a plane or in an airport, it’s plenty fast enough for watching HD movies. It’s really great to have this additional space on my laptop so I can leave my SSD free for important work data and apps, and offload unimportant / entertainment files so my SSD remains unburdened.

    IMPORTANT TIP: If you plan on using the JetDrive as additional storage that you leave plugged into your MacBook most of the time, you should re-format it to OSX Extended (Journaled) before you start writing data to it. This way, TimeMachine will automatically include it in your scheduled backups.

    Better than expected after failed PNY StorEDGE, August 1, 2014
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Transcend 128GB JetDrive Lite 360 Storage Expansion Card for 15-Inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display (TS128GJDL360) (Personal Computers)
    I previously had purchased a PNY StorEDGE 128GB Flash Memory Expansion Module (P-MEMEXP128U1-EF) that failed at sitting anywhere near flush to the body of my late 2013 MBPr.
    I was worried that I’d end up with the same problem with the Transcend JetDrive Lite, but I’m glad I placed that order.
    The Transcend card fits nearly flush to the body of the laptop only sticking out a couple millimeters. Now it does stick out, it’s not completely flush with the body.
    Until Nifty puts out a MiniDrive for the 15″ MBPr this may be as good as it gets. The card fits snugly inside the reader and minimizes my worry of it falling out.

    In comparable tests between the StorEDGE and the JetDrive Lite, the JetDrive pummels the StorEDGE in write performance, while read performance is nearly the same.

    JetDrive Lite: Read: 76.9 MB/s
    Write: 59.2 MB/s

    StorEdge Read: 78.3 MB/s
    Write: 8.4 MB/s

    As some other have mentioned, it does not for whatever reason come formatted for use with OS X.
    Search Youtube for “How to format a Transcend JetDrive Lite for Mac OS X usage” for a short video showing the process.

    Just what I needed, June 3, 2014

    This review is from: Transcend 128GB JetDrive Lite 360 Storage Expansion Card for 15-Inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display (TS128GJDL360) (Personal Computers)
    The device works great. I was able to stream Pro Tools audio files directly from the drive without any hiccups. The price is comparable or better than similar devices, with excellent speed. It only sticks out about 1-2mm from the edge of the slot, which seems perfect. Small enough that if you used your computer without a case, it probably wouldn’t catch on anything, but big enough to pry out with your fingernail.

    The only very slight unimportant downside is that it’s not initially formatted in Mac OS, journaled. It’s a 30 second fix using Apple’s Disk Utility when you first install it, if you so choose.

    I would definitely see myself buying another one of these, if the need arises in the future.
