Have you noticed that your MacBook has been slowing down recently? Are you running out of disk space?

Feather SSD is the internal solid state drive storage solution that will solve all of your problems. With speeds nearly doubling our competitors at a fraction of the cost and our easy 3-step, five-minute installation Feather SSD will dramatically improve your disk speed using the newest 3D NAND Flash technology.

Feather SSD is up to 100% faster than the Apple's SSD.

 Get better performance for a fraction of the cost.

Specs

Powered by the newest 64 layer 3D NAND technology†, Feather SSD is an NVMe SSD which has much lower overhead than the stock AHCI drive. Please see the detailed specifications below.

† Only on 240GB and above. 

*Performance for all models are capped at 1500MB/s Read and 1500MB/s Write except MacBook Pro 2015 15" which goes to 2800MB/s Read and 1600MB/s Write. 

**Installing macOS 10.13 High Sierra or later on an Apple SSD updates the Mac's firmware, making this drive recognizable. If you have issues with recognition, please contact Fledging at support@fledging.net.

***Mid 2013 - 2014 MacBook Pro 13 and 15, MacBook Air 11 and 13 are known to have hibernations issues. Normal functionality can be achieved by running "sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 standby 0" in the terminal.

*Speed test performed on MacBook Pro 15" 2015
