    after using macrumors for a while to troubleshoot all kinds of problems i decided to check if anyone had this problem as well.

    I have a macbook air mid 2011 , upgraded to 1tb owc aura 6gb/s , after a couple of months the ssd was unusable , sent it back to owc , they replaced it 3 months have passed , ssd is bad again....

    this compute did not suffer from any spillage , i took a long good look at the board , all the components look fine, trim was enabled , and ssd was inserted perfectly well, i/o cable is fine, dc jack board is fine.

    did this happen to anyone ?
    is it the motherboard or the ssd ?

    does anyone know of incompatibilities/bottlenecks ?

    there is no cable , its pci-e or something , anyway the ssd worked for a while and was rendered unusable over time. ATM speeds dont concern me at all and 50 mb slower is fine by me .

    i just want to know if i might have a faulty motherboard or if this specific ssd has incompatibility issues with certain models.
