I believe it's made by Apple, so it should definitely work (if the SSD is good). It appears to just plug into the logic board on a special port and then connects via thunderbolt to another mac.

I may have to buy one of these myself and try it out.

I do have one as I think it will be an essential tool, but typically after spending the money on it, I have not had a chance to use it yet.

Isn´t that the way things usually are ?

1. Need strange/specific part
2. After much trouble, discover name/model and source for part
3. Buy a couple of that part just to have it the next time
4. Never need that part again

I do have some adaptors that i did buy for several types of drive connections like this sort of this that i did never use on my entire life ...

At any rate it's better to have the part/tool whatever and never need it rather than needing it and not be able to buy it on time ...

I agree with you, I also like to buy tools "just in case" to be prepared. But this is a kind of "murphy affected" natural law that when you have the thing, you won´t need it anymore. Like, one may have 100 different sizes of screws. Then he will need a 101th size that wasn´t in his inventory. :D

Yeah .... And that specific Macbook Pro tool is expensive as well ...

No problem in having cheap stuff "just in case" but investing considerable $$$ on a tool that you will never use it's a little bit "extreme" ...

Better wait to need for the tool in this particular case unless you do deal with Macbook Pro on daily basis...

Personaly i'm NOT going to buy this one unless i do really need it for a specific case.

The reason I grabbed one was the price. It was before they came on the market and mine was only (relative term) $150.

There is couple of problems. No every mac can deal with it. I am guessing the ones with thunderbolt 4 only.

Looks like I am going to purchase one as well. But does not really look like it has been developed by Apple, at least when looking at the labels on the screenshots, it does not really look too authentic.

But if it works, it works.

DR-Kiev, do you mind sharing the models it has worked well with so far?
