Is your Mac getting sluggish? We’ve got your back! Transcend’s JetDrive 420 SSD replaces the current drive in your MacBook Pro, MacBook, or Mac mini, breathing new life into your Mac. Transcend’s JetDrive SSDs are also backed by an industry-leading 5-year warranty.

Boot faster. Work smarter.

Built with the highest quality 3D NAND flash memory and proprietary SSD controllers, JetDrive 420 turbocharges your Mac. JetDrive 420 transfers data up to 5 times faster than traditional hard disk drives. Its superior performance drastically improves computer startup and program launch times.

A new level of reliability

JetDrive 420 reduces the risk of data loss caused by shock or vibration by having no moving parts. Moreover, built-in wear-leveling support can extend the lifetime of your SSD.

Your old drive reborn

Transcend’s JetDrive 420 SSD upgrade kit comes with an external enclosure that supports the USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface. Just pop your original HDD or SSD in the enclosure, and you’ve got a sleek, new external storage device.

Take control with JetDrive Toolbox

Exclusively developed by Transcend for JetDrive SSDs, JetDrive Toolbox monitoring software leverages S.M.A.R.T. technology to detect possible drive failures before they occur. Additionally, the Health Indicator function can monitor the wear-out level of your SSDs.
