    Does ne1 know where I can purchase the 1TB PCIe-Based Flash Storage for 2014 15" MBP? I know the manufacturer is Samsung (Apple Samsung) but I need to find the retailers for this.

    The only place to purchase is ebay. No one sells 3rd party PCIE for Apple devices yet. OWC said they would (other than the Mac Pro), but that has yet to come to fruition in over a year...

    OWC doesn't have TRIM support. It is nothing bad actually as Mac OS X only offered trim support for 3rd party SSD since Yosemite. Unless you really need right now, it is better to wait. Who knows they may come up with one soon.

    I see that the OP asked this some time ago so this is probably irrelevant but since creamz posting bumped it to the 1st page here are my two cents. The OWC drives are run in RAID and show up as an external drive for the late 2013 and later drives. This also means you can't use them in Bootcamp. Another thing to consider is that the 1TB OWC drive is noticeably slower than Apple's 1TB, especially the new 2015 drives (the 1TB drives have been 4x lane since late 2013). Personally I would spend more and source an OEM system pull. The OWC has too many shortcomings.
