Need to replace HDD

Hey Dan,

Is the Aura SSD a blade SSD?

My issue is I NEED to replace my HDD because I can't back it up due to an update, rendering my iMac useless (literally)!

So I would prefer to just get a regular SSD with an adapter rather than going the trouble of replacing the blade SSD. This way I can plug in my old HDD after and transfer data.

Does this make sense?

What is your exact model? Look it up here using your systems Serial Number EveryMac - Lookup as you had piggy-backed onto someones else's question I want to make sure I aim you correctly.


Why do you need to replace the HDD?

What do you mean you can't back it up because of an update?

Here are the following upgrade options for your Mac:

It would be easier to replace the 3.5" inch HDD with a 2.5" SSD. Taking apart the iMac is a hassle already. You shouldn't take it apart if you aren't a professional.

Of course it makes sense, the blade SSD is expensive and slower than a standard m.2. Adapter does work, i got on in my retina MBP

Update (24.07.2018)

iMac Intel 27" EMC 2546 Blade SSD Replacement

Thats how it is done.

If you changed a Iphone Display htan u can do this aswell.

I changed my Blade SSD with a M.2 SSD:

The M.2 SSD is around 30 percent faster!

The stock does 420 MB/s and the M.2 with adapter does about 550 MB/s
