SSD Upgrade Kit for Apple Mac Pro - OS X Bootable, SATA III, PCI Express 2.0
This listing is for one brand new SSD (Solid State Drive) SATA III Upgrade Kit for the Apple Mac Pro desktop tower.

A 2.5" SSD or HDD mounted on this adapter can be used as a boot or data drive on all Mac Pros!

This kit does NOT include the SSD itself - only the SSD adapter card is included. You can use this product with any standard 2.5" SSD on the market.

Also please see the even faster version of this product, the Superspeed SSD Upgrade Kit for Mac Pro.

Why You Need this Product

A Solid State Drive (SSD) is arguably the single most cost effective way to speed up your computer.

Especially when used as a boot volume, you will experience noticeably faster system booting, application launching, and file loading. A generally snappier desktop makes computing more enjoyable, and a good SSD can be added to your system far more easily than upgrading the CPU, for instance.

Unfortunately, SSD drives pose some special challenges for Mac Pro users. First of all, the Mac Pro's internal hard drive bays are too big for 2.5" SSD drives, so you need a special tray to mount an SSD inside the bay.

Even worse is the fact that once you have the SSD installed, it will be limited to inferior transfer speeds due to the outdated SATA II protocol. The most you'll get out of your drive bay SATA ports is about 275/255 MB/s (read/write).

Today's SSD drives are capable of extremely fast transfer speeds. Why hobble your SSD with an inferior connection?

Give Your Mac Wings

This innovative product solves both problems in one stroke. Simply mount your 2.5" SSD onto this card, then pop it into one of your Mac Pro's empty PCI-E slots. Due to the onboard SATA III controller, you now have access to your SSD at speeds of up to 400 MB/sec (PCIE 2.0), without touching your existing drive bays!


No drivers required! Simply plug your SSD into this unit, fastening it down with the included hold-down screws, then install the unit into one of your Mac Pro's available expansion slots. When you boot up with your new SSD installed, you'll be automatically directed to Disk Utility to format your drive for Mac.

30 Day Guarantee and 1 Year Warranty

I'm so sure you're going to be happy with this product, I'm offering a full 30 day money satisfaction back guarantee. If you're not absolutely 100% satisfied, you'll be able to return it within the first 30 days for a full refund. This product also comes with a one year warranty.

----- Important Shipping Information - Please Read Before Purchasing! -------------------------

Please make sure your shipping address is accurate and current with both Ebay and Paypal before you make your purchase.

I have this item on hand and it will ship it within 1 business day of my receipt of payment.

The shipping rates are detailed in this auction, and if you want expedited shipping, please select that on the purchase page screen. Please note that Express shipping does not always mean overnight, and the USPS recommends that you check their web site for shipping times from one zip code to another. If you have any special requests concerning shipment, please let me know before you make your purchase, or at the time of purchase at the very latest.

International customers: I highly recommend the Express shipping option for international shipments, as it's usually only $10 more, it gets there quicker and has much better tracking. I do my best to smooth the customs process, but in the end you are 100% responsible for any import duties paid. Please note that in rare cases packages take days or even weeks to clear customs, and I will not be held responsible for this.

----- Returns, Etc. --------------------------------------------------------------------

Any item returned for a refund or replacement must arrive in the same condition in which you originally received it.

I strive to maintain a perfect feedback rating, in all areas. If for some reason my service to you is not in the 100% positive area, please let me know, and I will attempt to rectify it. I'm very serious about this, and I'm totally dedicated to providing a positive experience to my customers.

If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me! Good luck, and happy bidding!
