Last week, OWC released its new proprietary firmware version for its industry-leading, SandForce-driven Solid State Drive line. The update is available free for download and adds the ability to update your SSD from a bootable USB drive or a CD/DVD and contains general performance enhancements and reliability fixes.
If you haven’t yet made the update, or are looking for extra instruction while doing so, OWC has now released a step-by-step video detailing the installation.
We hope the video will assist you during installation, and if you require further assistance, please contact our Technical Support Department at 800-275-4576, via email, or live chat and we will be happy to assist with your update process.
You can find the video in our Tech Center, and we’ve also embedded it after the break…
With all the crazy activity last week, including Cyber Week specials, Fusion Drives, and coverage of the new iMac, you might have thought we forgot about any other Mac models. Don’t worry, we haven’t.
We’ve got two more videos for you this time around. The first rounds out our upgrades for the 2012 Mac mini, where we show you how to replace the existing drive, not just add a second one.
The other one is for you fans of the 13” MacBook Pro with Retina display. Here, we show you how to replace the stock SSD with a larger-capacity OWC Mercury Aura Pro SSD.
As always, you can find all our Instructional Series of videos in our Tech Center, on our YouTube channel, and as iTunes Video Podcasts.
Among our various video endeavors, our Instructional Series of videos is probably the most well-regarded. After all, how can you not like free, step-by-step instructions on upgrading your Mac?
Continuing in our pursuit of providing you with the most comprehensive instructional set offered by any source, we’ve added a couple more videos to the list. 2012 Mac mini owners are the beneficiaries this time around, with a pair of videos showing how to upgrade the Memory, and how to install a second internal drive by way of an OWC Data Doubler kit.
As always, you can find these new videos in our Tech Center, as well as on our YouTube channel, with an iTunes version to come in the near future.
Oh… and while we’re talking about videos, don’t forget to vote for OWC in the 2013 Meet Me at CES Video Contest. There’s only a few days left, so make sure to vote for us daily and let all of CES see the OWC Difference.
It’s pretty safe to say that, since its introduction, Newer Technology’s Power2U USB/AC Wall Outlet has been insanely popular. Tens of thousands of Power2Us have been sold, and only a very small percentage of people have had questions during the installation process.
Fortunately, though, most of the questions boil down to a few cases which can be easily remedied. While the FAQ tab on the appropriate product page(s) should suffice, these topics are actually easier to understand when presented visually. After all, they say “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
Well, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth 30,000 words per second, and that’s just what we’ve done. We hope by illustrating answers to common questions that you’ll be able understand the solutions more easily.
You can find the video in our Tech Center if you want, but we’ve also embedded it after the break… Article Continues…
It’s been a while since we really drew attention to new additions to our Instructional Series of videos, but considering the requests we’ve been getting lately, we figured you may be interested.
