OWC has the Micro P400e enterprise SSD for just $99. A true bargain.Deal ends Friday at midnight PST.
MPG recently tested the Micron P400e, and it’s not the fastest SSD out there*, but it’s way faster than any hard drive and designed for a very long service life.
- Make an old dog of a laptop run like a new puppy for just $99 (ditto for a MacMini or 2009-2012 Mac Pro using a hard drive for the system). MPG recently upgraded an old MacMini with the Micron—works great, runs silent.
- Build your own 1.6TB Thunderbolt SSD for about $749. That’s about $349 for TB4 Mini, $400 for four SSDs). Prices/availability as this review was written. See also Walkthrough: How to make a RAID Stripe Using SoftRAID 5.1.
- They’re cheap enough that if the capacity works for you (400GB), use them for compact backups of critical data. For example, insert one or two of them into the OWC Drive Dock or up to four of them into the OWC Thunderbay 4 Mini (get extra Thunderbay 4 Mini drive trays if more than four drives for the TB4 Mini).
* For top performance (and more capacity), get the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 1TB SSD
