    Hi All,
    Thinking of purchasing a OWC 240GB SSD for my 2012 11" MBA, has anyone had any experience with these? I have heard mixed reviews about them.

    Thanks

    OWC's quality control seems to be inconsistent. There have been a couple threads here recently on this. Here is one.

    That is the second thread I recall with that same sizing issue. OWC claims they have remedied the issue... who knows. They do seem to be good about exchanging defective products, so I suppose there is relatively little risk.
