    Of those two, you need to go with 2).

    The one from OWC is only made for the Mac Pro 2013.

    The Transcend should be fine - much less expensive, too.

    Actually the OWC one is $20 cheaper, the link I sent has extra enclosure in it.

    I think the one with the enclosure would be better. You might need that enclosure, allowing you to continue to use the old drive for storage.
    But, if you are only looking at price and the OWC is cheaper, get the OWC - I guess you already have an external enclosure for the old drive.
    That link seems to offer used drives for sale.
    You may want to make sure that you purchase a new item. (Inexplicably, a refurb drive is more than a new item. I wonder why that would be?)

    I'm actually looking at the performance. The new one from MacSales.com is 20$ cheaper when just comparing the SSD prices. 20$ is not too much of a difference for me at the moment so I would like to make sure that I get the better of the 2. Any other SSDs you would recommend? I couldn't find any apart from these 2.

    Just dropped this OWC option in a retina MBP about a month ago.

    Easy, no issues, good performance.

    Sorry, no benchmarks, but user very happy. The enclosure to re-use the old storage seems very well built too.
