    Feather M13 2 Tb PCIe/NVME ssd

    Posted by Dr E Ochola on Sep 8th 2019

    Just to say a massive thanks to Fledging for an excellent product and great support! I needed to increase the flash storage in my 27” 5K iMac to 2tb from the miserly 256gb apple ssd that came with it. Max and Steven were prompt in helping me be sure of the product I needed, and shipped it to a friend who was visiting the US on business.(I live in the U.K.).It’s been successfully installed and I have the storage I need, and fast too. Fledging threw in a free Mojave install on a usb, and were reassuring of the warranty support to me even so far away. Will definitely use again, or recommend in the future.Thank you.

    M13 and Kit

    Posted by Jason Askew on Aug 20th 2019

    This product worked exactly as expected. And, as the original product from another vendor did not, this product came with easy to understand instructions. Since this was going into an older MB Air I did not know the firmware had to be 10.13 prior to installing the drive. The kit came in handy since I did not want to delete the customers data in order to get the 10.13 firmware updated. I was able to use the drive from the kit to do the 10.13 update and preserve my customers data! Once 10.13 was installed I installed the new 1TB SSD and the new OSX install and data migration from time machine back work as expected.

    Feather M13

    Posted by Max Lemnij on Aug 20th 2019

    I have the Feather M13 installed for a few days now in my Late 2013 MBP and it works perfect. I had an original 256GB Samsung SSD which came with my MBP and made a backup of it. After that, I restored Mac OS with Carbon Copy Cloner (kept the HFS+ formatting), resized partition with Disk Utility and made room for Winblowzzz 10 and restored ithat one back with Winclone. I used those terminal commands for Trim and Hibernate / sleep and reset SMC and PRAM. All is good now , more room and better read / write speeds.

    Feather M13 512GB - MBP 13" Early 2015 Retina

    Posted by J Newman on Aug 8th 2019

    After researching for an SSD upgrade and reviewing my options, I narrowed them down to Fledging, OWC, Transcend or an OEM Samsung replacement. The criteria was to find a cost effective and reliable solution with sufficient product support.

    Common concerns with most of the none OEM products are thermal issues while in operation and problems when trying to set up the operating system. After corresponding over email to Fledging support about these concerns, I was reassured this would be an unlikely occurance and for further peace of mind, an Adata XPG heatsink could be applied to the SSD to better manage any heat generated. They also explained that the cause of the increased temperature relates to the significant increase in read/write speeds over OEM.

    The order was placed directly with Fledging and the M13 kit was recieved approx five days later (I am based in the UK.) I was continually updated via email on the transportion progress.

    The upgrade itself was straight forward, first reviewing the instructions on Fledging's Support page and watching a tutorial video on youtube.
    The MBP was first backed up using time machine on an external HDD. The screws required more torque than expected to overcome the dried threadlocking compound but this wasn't an issue. The SSD swapped out easily enough and I ensured the M13 was fully engaged with a "click". Booting up for the first time holding the alt (option) key and selected to boot from the Time Machine external HDD completely problem-free.

    The M13 has been running two days now, approx 20 hours, without a hitch. I haven't performed any benchmark testing but the drive feels as rapid if not slightly faster than OEM.

    The support from the Fledging team has been flawless and I cannot recommend this product enough.

    M-13

    Posted by George Menzies on Jul 23rd 2019

    My upgraded iMac is fast and is running smoothly. The installation could not have been easier. The plug and play M-13 PCIe saved me from having to upgrade. My 2013 iMac will be good for quite a few more years. Thank you Fledging.

    2TB SSD

    Posted by Jeremy Dion on Dec 18th 2018

    I was so pleased to be able to find a good quality upgrade for my Mid 2015 Macbook Pro. I looked at other options (Aura from OWC, and a few others), but ended up landing on Feather SSD because they were hundreds of dollars cheaper. They were very helpful in their phone support pre-purchase. Also, the install is quite straightforward. I did have slight difficulty getting the new drive to seat into the socket, but after talking to tech support I realized I could just use the two screwdrivers supplied to push in on the adapter itself. When I did this the drive seated completely with no problems. I love the fact that High Sierra is pre-installed. Just turn your computer back on and start the migration from your Time Machine backup. Speeds of this drive are amazing faster than my Apple 1 TB SSD. With my Apple drive I was getting 529MB/s write and 1840MB/s read. With the 2TB SSD I am now getting an amazing 2,400MB/s write and 1,996MB/s read! I've had the drive installed for two weeks now with absolutely no issues! I'm recommending this to everyone I know who needs and SSD upgrade for their mac!

    Feather SSD M13 3D Nand

    Posted by Steve on Sep 22nd 2018

    Arrived quickly and well packaged, all tools incl. in metal tin. Web site support docs-links were not working for me.... wouldn't accept inputs at all, no cursor, no response, so I couldn't get the docs....
    But It wasn't that difficult, 10 screws on the case, 1 internal screw. Booted perfectly in a fresh instance of 10.13.6 High Sierra. Tested SSD 3D NAND drive both before and after w/ various data loads in BlackMagicSpeed Test and the new SSD rated 1255 M/sec write and 1500 M/sec read. This appx. 2x to 2.2x faster than my 128gb SSD in my late 2013 MacBook Pro 15" A1398 Laptop!! Excellent performance boost, a little better than promised. Very happy with purchase and highly recommend!!! Congratulations on a good package and ease of install and boot-up.
