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.

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.

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.

I'm giving this product just one star, but I would change it afterwards if someone in Transcend can give me a solution.
After returning the first JetDrive to Amazon for replacement, the second arrived and showed the exact same problem as the first: it mounts as read-only on my MacBook Pro, Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013.
Disk Utility doesn't work either for formatting it, because the same read-only reason. I checked Transcend's website and somewhere in the FAQs it says it is because it's a defective unit and I have to send it to them for repairs. How is it possible?. I tried two brand new units and both showed the same problem. Do I have to send this back to Amazon too, get a refund and buy something else?.
Please Transcend, speak up!!!

UPDATE:
I was finally able to make it writable and start using it on my MBP. However, first I formatted it in a Win8.1 machine and only then my Mac was able to recognize it as a non read-only drive. Because of that burden, I'll only rise my rating from 1 to 3 stars.

UPDATE 2:
Another customer asked me for the depth of the inner part of this card, and the answer is: approximately 18mm

I have a TB of flash memory on my MBP Retina but I was always annoyed that dropbox was using 100GB just to keep my files in sync. This is the perfect solution because it frees my memory up and I don't have to worry about the card failing since the DropBox content is up in the cloud too. Keep in mind that it's not 100% flushed since you have to be able to pull the card out but there is no way that the card would damage the card slot since only a fraction of it stands out.

Great way to expand storage if you have a SSD. Although I only got the 64GB I suggest just spend the money to get the 128GB. Very easy to insert however tough to remove! So this is something you'll want to just install and "leave it alone". Not sure how it will hold up with frequent inserting and removing. Leaving the card in while putting the Mac to sleep and waking there is no issues. Shutting down and restarting again no issues. Read Write speeds - well Read speeds is where its at (i.e. - watching vids). Formatted stock as EX-FAT. Not sure why as this is a device made to fit the MacBook Pro's SD card slot. Thus I reformatted it to HFS by Disk Util. Some say not to do this as it messes up the read/write speeds I guess but I want it formatted specifically for my Mac. Reason is when backing up by Time Machine it will back up the card as well.

Overall pleased with this product and it works fine and it does have fast read speeds. I mainly use it to store videos, photos, and docs. Next will start putting music files on it. Some say the NIFTY MiniDrive is something to consider once available for the 15" Late 2013.

On a side note for some reason the shipping was ultra slow. It took 7 business days to get. Could be the USPS though.
