    Hello there,

    I'm currently looking for a MicroSD adapter for my MacBook Pro Retina 13" (Early 2015). The design of the adapter should be similar to the one from Nifty - silver and flawless.

    I'm living in Germany and the Nifty adapter for the 13" Retina model is currently out of stock.

    I don't want adapters with flashy colors and I also don't want protruding adapters. Do you have any suggestions for me?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you. Yeah, I've already seen this one, but I would prefer silver. Maybe I come back to this if I can't find anything else.

    I have several "half" cards that I use in the SD card slot.

    Both PNY (StorEDGE) and Transcend (JetDrive) make cards with fixed storage sizes. Current models are 64 and 128GB.

    TheMiniDrive and Nifty make cards with removable MicroSD cards and currently support sizes up to 128GB.I have several brands, as well.

    The StorEDGE has a small lip that sticks out just enough to allow you to grab it to eject the drive. The other versions sit completely flush with the rMPB, and have little slots where you can "hook" them with the provided tool to eject them.

    I dunno how you intend to use the SD card, but my experience is the micro SD cards are not all that robust for day to day read/write type use. They are fine for saving and reading images or video that you delete once in a while. Even the best Sandisk Ultra cards often corrupt themselves under heavier use. The larger SD cards are much more durable and using the half cards may make for a happier experience.

    Hi,

    i have same model MacBook like you have and recently i bought a miscroSD adapter for my laptop, its brand is 8Mobility iSlice. It works very well for my Macbook ( I used a 128gb SanDisk card and this adapter recognized it ) . Great product
    It seems that this item is also sold in Amazon.de ( http://www.amazon.de/dp/B014GNPVNC ) . Maybe you can try one. good luck.

    BaseQI has it in silver. Compared to Nifty it also has the advantage of tool-less removal.
