OWC 1TB Aura 6G Solid-State Drive - OWCSSDA12R960


  • Global wear leveling algorithm automatically distributes data evenly and manages program/erase count, maximizing SSD lifespan
  • StaticDataRefresh technology manages free space, gradually refreshing data across the SSD over time, enhancing data integrity
  • Hardware BCH ECC corrects errors up to 66-bit/1KB for superior data retention and drive health
  • Best-in-class power consumption
  • Advanced security protocols support AES 128/256-bit full-drive encryption
  • First and Only Complete Storage Upgrade
    Once again, OWC provides Mac users the only upgrade solution that delivers higher performance, functionality, and reliability! When first introduced, the MacBook Pro with Retina display base model offered a 256GB SSD configuration with no upgrade option. Current base models start from 128GB to 256GB. Now, instead of being "factory locked", the OWC Aura 6G gives you the freedom to upgrade your capacity to meet your storage needs. Just like other OWC upgrades, we include a free 'how-to' video to make this an easy and money-saving DIY upgrade
  • Better by Design
    Aura 6G SSD for 2012-Early 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina™ display is designed and built with premium tier-1 NAND flash and backed by a 3-year warranty. OWC SSDs are engineered to be the best for Mac, undergoing a rigorous 7- stage lab testing process to deliver absolute reliability at maximum performance long into the future
