Transcend TLC 480GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD

The Transcend TLC 480GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (TS480GSSD220S) was Amazon Gold Box Deal of the day on 29th December 2016.

Its usual retail price is US$126.99 (S$185), but for the Gold Box Deal, it was retailing for US$86.99 (S$127) with free shipping to Singapore if your order qualifies for the AmazonGlobal Saver program.

I bought it to replace the HDD of my 8 years old MacBook Pro which is the Apple 15″ MacBook Pro 2.53GHz (Late 2008).

It is still usable and fast after you replace it with a faster SSD despite it being only on SATA I. Too bad, I can only install up to OS X El Capitan as macOS Sierra only supports MacBook Pro Mid 2010 or newer.
