Active Media Products has a new line of upgrade SSDs that come in upgrade kits with all you need to get your data from your old drive to the new one. The SSD upgrade kits are made to fit just about any notebook that uses the 1.8-inch ZIF interface for storage. That includes the first gen MacBook Air and a number of other notebooks.
The SSD upgrade kits include the SSD, cloning device, a screwdriver and the instructions. The SSD kits come with 64GB SSD for $169, a 128GB SSD will cost you $289, and the 256GB SSD will sell for $739. The SSDs all have the same performance with 130MB/sec transfer speeds.
The cloning adapter that the SSD ships with is a USB cable that allows you to transfer all your data over to the new SSD with minimal hassle. Availability for the SSD upgrade kits is unknown at this time. “Our cloning adapter will help customers get up and running that much faster because now they don’t need to reinstall the OS and all their applications. We included a detailed installation guide and a mini screwdriver in the box to simplify the upgrade process,” stated Active Media Products VP of Sales, Jerry Thomson. AMP does not include a USB cable or cloning software in these kits.
