Thank you Skrael. I’ve read the same. I was hoping there were other options because I know the OWC is quite expensive. Do you know if this one would work: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00DUGFUV0/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AQ0GSAV8PJ0BI ?

I remember I bought my macbook pro in Feb-March 2013, so I’m not sure I’m going to assume it is early 2013 mac, but do not think I upgraded to the flash drive. I bought the basic mac, no upgrades in memory or anything. Unless the flash drive was part of the basic option.

Thanks again!

It’s not an M.2 interface. This SSD uses a proprietary Apple interface and SATA 6GB/s bus standard.

OP, if you’re looking for a full external enclosure, I think only OWC makes one.

Are you sure its not just down to your drive speed?

I was running Win 8.1 from an SSD in an Envoy USB3 anclosure and it was plenty fast.

retina or non-retina?

you can try getting an external enclosure

  • standard 2.5″ sata to USB enclosure if you have a non-retina computer
  • one of these if retina

i’d also try running AHT
