    I've bought 2 mont ago a 480 aura SSD from OWC for my MBA
    Returned to OWC because of my MBA becomes super slow, lot of freeze, clearly no more unusable.
    PRAM, TRIM enabled... SSD formated ... etc etc ...always the same problem

    OWC is not able to help, lot of time lost so can't expect refund
    I've bought an envoy 12. unfortunately, this enclosure is not able to fir the OWC SSD but only apple's one (???)

    Do I miss an important information??
    Is someone can explain something I can't find on OWC web site, or something OWC support can't explain? Actually they are asking me send my MBA to an apple center to check it...
    I will share later all the details

    More or less the same here. Had a transcent ssd for a early MBA 11" and worked like a charm.
    Because transcent still does not have a ssd for the MBP mid 2014 had to go with the OWC a nightmare!!!
