Apple’s SSD for Mac Pro (or iMac) — Not a Smart Move

Why would you pay a premium for an inferior product?

According to Apple’s own figures compared to my real-world test results, here’s what you get with an Apple SSD compared to the Mercury Extreme Pro.

Relative SSD speed

Performance over time

Apple’s SSD offerings have much slower performance to start with, and are unlikely to maintain that performance over time (most SSDs degrade badly with use).

Value

My advice: don’t waste your money on the wrong product.

You get a short 1 year warranty with Apple’s SSD (three years if you pay extra for AppleCare, but that won’t cover degradation of SSD performance).

How about a 30-day money back guarantee and a three/five year warranty instead?! It’s a no-brainer. (Warranty duration depends on which product line is chosen).
