As a photographer, I travel. External hard drives don’t work for me. With 256GB of extra integrated storage, my MacBook can finally keep up.

WARNING: “Your startup disk is almost full.” When I ran out of computer space, I thought I needed a new MacBook -- TarDisk Pear changed that.


Brad

Last year, I started to bring an external HD to meetings. As a banker, it was really embaressing. Enter TarDisk Pear: time and money saved.


Pear

Pear by TarDisk is like nothing you have seen before. With one click, you can pair your memory with ours. A 256GB MacBook Air/Pro becomes 512GB. Pear increases the size of your Macintosh HD. Just a little bit of magic so you never run out of space again.

About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Double MacBook Storage.

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

After a visit to the Apple Genius Bar with a full hard drive, I simply needed a way to store more digital files. As someone who uses my MacBook everyday, this solution needed to work without requiring me lug around extra bulk or delete my existing files and programs. I could not accept the "official answer", that there was no easy way to upgrade the hard drive in a MacBook.

What makes your product special?

TarDisk is the first and only plug-and-play hybrid drive and the only way to increase storage space in a MacBook Air/Pro made after 2012.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

We operate at the edge of what is technologically possible. Our products use cutting edge electronics, precision machined components, and innovative software to tie together a seamless experience. Cross disciplinary engineering has its challenges, however, these challenges produce a truly integrated end product that is well worth the added effort. What we have built was not possible even only a few years ago and we are excited to share it with you on Amazon!

Recently Adam from TarDisk contacted me regarding the problems I had with my original TarDisk and my posted negative feedback. I had received a refund from Amazon so in a sense issue had been addressed. However, he/TarDisk wanted to be sure I knew that they had addressed the quality issues which were raised in my negative feedback. They offered to send me a new TarDisk at no charge if I would review it and update my posted comments. My choice was to order one from Amazon, pay for it myself and then if the product quality had changed upgrade my review.

The current product has top notch quality - see the attached photo of the TarDisk just received. The installation directions are detailed and clear. Product performance is as advertised. In addition Pear now comes standard with all TarDisks.

Adam, thanks for following up with me and I am pleased to be able to update my review.

============
I was disappointed with this product because (1) it was not clear that purchasing it through/from Amazon meant it would not have Pear and (2) the quality of the aluminum case was poor; it had sharp edges, see attached photo. The attention to production detail was not present.

Simply put, if you need to expand the storage on your Apple laptop this is the best option. I made the mistake of choosing 128Gb for my Macbook Pro last year, so I was running low on storage in no time. I was looking into buying a 256Gb SSD on eBay to replace the current one, but the pricing was ridiculous and the idea of voiding my warranty to add storage wasn't very appealing. I searched forever for a good solution, and I landed on Tardisk. I am glad that I did. I decided to go with the 128Gb model to double the storage in my laptop.

The quality of the hardware seems high; the product seems like it is built to last forever. The instructions were clear and the installation process was straightforward and quick (less than 15 minutes). Because of how the product's software works (it basically uses the Tardisk and the laptop's SSD to create a single Logical volume just like Apple's fusion drive), real world performance and benchmark numbers are pretty much identical to the SSD alone. This is because it keeps your system files as well as commonly used Apps and files on the faster SSD, while infrequently used files are moved to the slower Tardisk storage. So while the read and write speeds of the Tardisk itself may be low when benchmarked, when combined with your SSD, the difference is practically imperceivable to the user, and performance will be the same 99% of the time. All you really see is the expanded storage! Just make sure you are ordering the model that includes the Pear software.

The only real trade off is that the SD card reader becomes unusable, but this probably isn't an issue for most people. If it is, a $10 card reader will do the trick.

I have been more than impressed with the Tardisk and Pear software, and I recommend it highly. The price might seem a little bit steep for the amount of storage you get, but the seamless experience that Pear provides is well worth the investment.

This was a rough one. Long story short; the product works great and as advertised. BUT, for some reason, when I went to install the Pear software; it didn't work. I had to remove the drive, and do some serious hacking in my Mac. Life got worse as my Mac wouldn't restore properly from a time machine backup. Then reinstalling the OS didn't work either. An entire evening was spent on this. Finally had to erase my hard drive and start from scratch. Reinstall the OS, restore from time machine, reinstall missing software; then I could finally install Pear again; thanks to the superb help with Tardisk customer service. 10 minutes on the phone with them and all is well. Couldn't be happier with the new larger hard drive my Mac is seeing.

I have a 512GB flash drive in my MacBook Pro and have hovered between 425GB and FULL for over a year. I bought this 128GB expansion card and love it. It took just a minute to setup and then my hard drive icon turned gold, which is pleasing to the eyes, of course. I'm now able to get more work done because I can store more GoPro video files on my laptop.

This is not only a fantastic storage expansion system, but the company is incredibly responsive. I bought and installed a 128 into my MacBook Air and for some reason it didn't work. I called their help line and also sent an email. The return email directed me to a YouTube video that told me how to get it working, and, mirabile dictu, it did. At the same time, I left a voice mail, and the company made numerous efforts to connect.

Things are finally working perfectly, but regardless - the company is super.

I have bought a TarDisk 128 GB from them directly. It arrived in 3 days via USPS. Everything works just like what is described. Simple, Easy, and Secure. I inserted the Tardisk into the SDXC slot. After a reboot & FSCK, I installed the PEAR software. This seamless expands my MacBook.
In fact, it is a no-brain simple. And, it matches my MacBook Pro chassis perfectly. It is non-intrusive and does not stick out like a SD card.
Based on the BlackICE disk speed test tool, I am getting 100 MB/s Read and 90 MB/s Write. This is with my regular 500 GB HD (not SSD) paired.
I would recommend this to people who needs to expand storage space for their MacBook Pro.
