I have no real use for an SD card, so this is a perfect solution.

This is a great product especially for Macbook Air owners who are always tight on space. It's probably the least expensive way to double or almost triple your available space for under $100 provided you don't need to use the SD card slot on your Mac.

The card is essentially a cut down SD card that snaps in securely and sits flush with the side of your Macbook Pro or Macbook Air (be sure to pick the version specific to your Mac model). The card stays firmly in place and requires a bit of effort to remove - I found sliding a finger nail underneath the sides is enough to pry it loose. I worry that over time the side of the card might weaken but so far I've removed the card at least a dozen times with no apparent signs of anything snapping off.

One thing to note is that this is far from an SSD replacement. In fact the write speeds are all over the place, with sequential writes as low as 12 megabytes per second and occasionally as high as 50. Generally in my testing with the Blackmagic disk benchmark the writes were under 20 megabytes per second. Reads, however, were much better and more consistent running anywhere from 60 to 87 megabytes per second.

Oddly the drive doesn't come formatted for the Mac's native file system. It's formatted with the more universal ExFAT system that's compatible with most computing platforms. I strongly suggest converting it to the Mac HFS+ Journaled format through disk utility so that Time Machine will include the Transcend card with its regular backups. I do suggest checking your time machine volume from time to time to ensure that the drive is properly backed up.

Overall this is a nice product that will safely add a significant amount of storage to a Macbook Pro Retina or Air. I just wish the write speeds were more consistent.

Great design, could be faster.
Also keeps force unmounting when the system sleeps, needs a software solution to stop this happening.

I had (and backed) the Nifty MiniDrive. It was flaky at best, cheaply made, and easily came apart.

This JetDrive is anything but that. Rock solid build, fits snuggly, and I'm getting great speeds considering it's an SD card. The list max speed rates are pretty spot on. Formatted as OS Extended I'm getting about 30-40mb/s write and 85-90mb/s read, which is plenty fast for what I'm using it for: offloading media so I have more room for more things on my internal SSD. I have no real use for an SD card, so this is a perfect solution.

A bit pricey, but so far a superb product.

One of the few deficiencies associated with solid state drive equipped Macs is the comparatively small size of internal storage. In an era where 500 GB is the norm and even 1 TB is common, a 256 GB drive is small.

When I bought my 15 inch Mac Book Pro with Retina Display, I rationalized that with iCloud and other cloud storage options the loss of half of my hard drive would be find compensation in the increased speed and reliability of a SSD. To some extent those assumptions were correct. Nonetheless I often found myself managing drive utilization trying to keep at least 10% of the total storage space open.

Transcend provides a solution. For slightly less than $80 and a Jet Drive Lite 350 I have increased my drive space by fifty percent. The Transcend Jet Drive Lite is essentially a High Capacity SD card which installs into one of the existing SD ports on MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. 

There are four different model cards, and you should carefully consider the chart before ordering. Each card is tailored for specific machines and is designed to be inserted into the port and lie more of less flush against the case, not sticking out like a normal SD card. The normal card can be spring ejected. This is not so with the Jet Drive Lite. It is very difficult to remove, and since it is in effect a secondary SSD that permanency is a virtue. I have inadvertently "ejected" the card fin the Finder only to discover it simply disconnects. The simplest recovery mode is to log out and then log back in and the drive is automatically recognized.

The card comes in a box, with warranty information, and nothing else. The limited lifetime warranty, if you can read it without an electron microscope, is quite good.

For those wondering, this is a Class 10 SD card. Great for storing files that you don't need rapid access to. If you need to write and read quickly (gaming, for example) this isn't the card for you. After a few seconds of the transfer writes were down to 6 MB/s and read speed falls by a similar factor.

Slow speeds. The Blackmagic Disk Speed Test gives me about 10MB/s write and 86MB/s read speeds, a far cry from the advertised 60MB/s write and 95MB/s read speeds. I'm using a Mid 2012 Retina MacBook Pro and only about half of the drive is currently occupied. I like that it fits perfectly inside the mac and besides a little num that allows you to pull it out with a fingernail, it's barely there.

Works very well in my MacBook Pro Retina (2012 version) and ease of use is very good. You need good fingernails to remove it from the slot so I just leave it in continually. Handy for another place to store data.
