OWC Announces First 1TB and 2TB SSD Upgrades for late 2013 Mac Pro

It is super expensive! I'll wait for prices to come down, but, I really could use a 2TB system drive for sure. Dang high SSD prices...

What are you filling your system drive with Ben? I've tried to keep my 1TB drive as lean and crud free as possible.

I've been using a 2TB system drive for years. I do audio work, too. Lots of music work. Native Instruments plugins eat up space. iTunes, Aperture, all those libraries eat up space. Office documents for several business that span over a decade, etc. When I updated to the late 2014 MP, I have to move most of that to the RAID. Then jump through the hoops to tell all my apps where that stuff was. A 2TB drive was a LOT easier to deal with. Yes, some of us have that must stuff, and justifiably, on a system drive. The only logical, realistic reason to not have it on a system drive, is lack of space. I'm looking forward to a 2TB system drive again. Way easier to deal with for my situation.

Also just a little over half the speed of the Apple SSDs. Unless you need space I'm not sure why you'd bother.
