If you're purchasing this product, I will assume you are trying to do the same - maximizing your built-in laptop storage for as little outlay as possible.
You need to be aware of some limitations. Initially the JetDrive card is formatted as MS-DOS/FAT so copying, etc. is very slow. So the first thing that needs to be done is to format the card as Mac Journalled via Disk Utility - allowing it to reach it's full speed potential.
Also, the JetDrive card will need to be inserted perfectly into the Mac's SD slot. Even the *slightest* of smallest gaps will plague you with constant Mac "Disk Not Ejected Properly" messages every once in a while, even though you didn't do anything to jar it. Pushing it in with your thumb won't fix the error from reoccurring either. Removing the card completely (which is a test of patience and nails as it's hard to remove - use a lot of gentle rocking) and reinserting it properly is the only way to get rid of these messages for good.Read more ›
I've put my photo library to card so my SSD is available for more applications.
I recommend to install Transcend JetDrive Toolbox so when entering sleep mode, card unmounts automatically and mac can go to "deep sleep".
I give this 64GB card 5* for being relatively fast as an external storage option, for fitting perfectly in the SD card slot and for its price. Sure there are cheaper generic micro sd card adapters but none will fit as well as this one while still being easy to remove without needing any special tools.
The JetDrive Lite 330 is in my opinion the most elegant storage solution for the macbook pro / Macbook Air line up, at least that i have tried so far.
Its great if we need more available space for documents, photos, videos and so on, or if we want a local drive for Time machine backups or even for our Photos Library without sacrificing our internal SSD. Off course it can be used in any other way but these are the things that i see that can be more useful.
About with half the size of a regular SD Card, just fits great on the Macbook pro.
The way that i see that its more useful is using it as a permanent solution and if we need to use a SD card then just use a USB SD Card reader and there we go!
Things i did like the most:
- Most Elegant Storage solution for the Macbook Pro / Macbook Air
- Great Speeds for the type of storage
- Safe to use on the go without worrying to remove the SD card
- Price tag is worth for what we get
Things i did like the less:
- I loved it!!! So there is nothing that i didn't liked about it :)
Hope that you guys enjoy the video and that its useful in some way
All the Best
First of all, the black base you see in the picture is the only part that does not go into the card slot. So in essence it does sit flush against my MacBook and it's nice to have this because you can take it out when you need it. Otherwise it's a snug fit. Nifty apparently goes all in but you need a special key to take it out. Plus it apparently has a red light on the pictures. This one looks sleek with the aluminium MacBook.
When I plugged it in. It was ready to go. However it hung up when I started writing on it. I just reformatted it to Mac OS Journaled (hope I got that right) and after that it has worked well. I have transferred my iTunes library and my picture to this card (I didn't realise it was more than 60 gb) and plan to use it for that purpose only. So far no issues when I open my iTunes and picture library on MacBook. And let's hope it lasts.
In future there will be a time when this too will fill up but that's a long way away. Then I may buy something similar to nifty because you can then choose your micro sd card capacity as you wish (you must have heard of the 800 dollar new 512 gb card..:). For now, this is ideal.
