I’m sharing my experience of upgrading the internal SSD on my early-2015 13″ retina macbook pro to an ADATA SX8200 PRO with the help of a sintech M.2 NGFF SSD adapter.
This same method will be applicable to Macbook Pro units from late-2013 to mid-2015, and Macbook Air devices from mid-2013 to early-2017 models.

    Hi! Really cool video and thanks for the tips!!!!
    I’m gonna make the same upgrade on the same macbook with the same adapter… Just some questions:
    Did you ever noticed some problems like fake ibernation or problems in boot up? And also do you recommend to use the thermal metal plate you find in the box? I mean maybe is good but I don't know if it fit inside the macbook….

    is it me or is the heat sink way too small?

    Is it the same process with the MacBook Air? I have been reading and some people say that the adapter is to thick for it. I was planning to use the 970 pro

    FAAR too much Thermal paste. Its supposed to be just a think layer between CPU and the Cooler. 3 Little dots probably would have been enought thermal past. This is at least 5-10 times the amount you need.

    Does your ADATA SX8200 PRO still work good after one month of use with your mac? I'm looking to have the same configuration with my early-2015 13" retina macbook pro
