Press Introduces 2.0TB Aura Pro SSD

Jun 26, 2017 | Woodstock, IL

owc-logo-blue, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced the availability of the new OWC 2.0TB Aura Pro Solid-state Drive (also available with the Envoy Pro External USB Storage Solution), for mid-2012 — early 2013 Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display. The 2.0TB Aura Pro is one of the fastest internal SSDs available on the market today.

This upgrade will free up and boost capacity on the internal hard drive — at just over five years of ownership. The Aura Pro drive is also available as a kit with an Envoy Pro enclosure that can immediately reuse an Apple internal hard drive, creating a new external USB 3.1 Gen1 portable drive.

Mac users love to extend the life of their Macs. A hard drive upgrade mid-life is a great way to create storage space for files, apps and software upgrades. Higher-capacity SSDs often bring faster transfer rates, so user data is readily accessible. Once again, OWC is providing Mac users with THE upgrade solution delivering performance, functionality and reliability. When first introduced, the MacBook Pro with Retina display base model offered a 256GB SSD configuration without an upgrade option. Current base models start at 128GB to 256GB. The OWC Aura Pro 6G gives users the freedom to upgrade capacity to meet their storage needs.

The Aura Pro 6G SSD offers a wide range of industry-leading controller technologies for performance and reliability, including:

  • 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

Availability and Pricing:

  • OWC 2.0TB Aura Pro Solid-state Drive — OWCSSDAP12R02S $899.99
  • OWC 2.0TB Aura Pro Solid-state Drive and Envoy Pro Kit — OWCSSDAP12R02S $939.99

The 2.0TB Aura Pro comes with the OWC 5-Year SSD Limited Warranty.
