Unfortunately, SSD drives pose some special challenges for Mac Pro users. First of all, the Mac Pro's internal hard drive bays are too big for 2.5" SSD drives, so you need a special tray to mount an SSD inside the bay. Even worse is the fact that once you have the SSD installed, it will be limited to inferior transfer speeds due to the outdated SATA II protocol. The most you'll get out of your drive bay SATA ports is about 275/255 MB/s (read/write). Today's SSD drives are capable of extremely fast transfer speeds. Why hobble your SSD with an inferior connection?Give Your Mac WingsThis innovative product solves both problems in one stroke. Simply mount your 2.5" SSD onto this card, then pop it into one of your Mac Pro's empty PCI-E slots. Due to the onboard SATA III controller, you now have access to your SSD at speeds of up to 550 MB/sec (PCIE 2.0), without touching your existing drive bays!InstallationNo drivers required! Simply plug your SSD into this unit, fastening it down with the included hold-down screws, then install the unit into one of your Mac Pro's available expansion slots. When you boot up with your new SSD installed, you'll be automatically directed to Disk Utility to format your drive for Mac.30 Day Guarantee and 1 Year WarrantyI'm so sure you're going to be happy with this product, I'm offering a full 30 day money satisfaction back guarantee.
