Will Transcend JetDrive 725 PCIe SSD work with iMac?

Hey guys, I want to install SSD to my iMac (to have both PCIe SDD and 1TB SATA HDD), and also add some RAM to make it work faster. But i am confused cuz I can't find any answers on the internet. Please help me to solve the problem. Will these products work with my computer?


iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013)

Model Identifier: Mac14,1


Transcend JetDrive™ 720 or Transcend JetDrive™ 725, I am not sure which one to choose. Are they the same? They work in MacBook Pro Retina and I thought may be it will fit and work on my iMac. Am I right?

Here is the link to see the SSD specs. If this two won't fit so which one to choose? There are also other JetDrives.


I am sure about this OWC RAM, but please take a look.

Did you speak with Transcend?

I should point out opening this model is a bear to open! And it is even harder to add either RAM or install/replace the SSD as the complete logic board needs to be removed for either!

Unless you have opened up a few of these 'Thin Series' iMac's before I would recommend not attempting this.

I'm sure you can buy a system with the added memory and with a SSD already installed (with or without a HD installed) that will be cheaper in the long haul after selling your system.

Thanks for reply. Custom Mac's are very expensive in Russia that's why I want to do it myself. I'm sure I can do that, my friend can help me, he opened up a couple of this iMac's before, also there is a great OWC tutorial on how to replace RAM and SSD slot is located close to It :). The problem is that I'm not sure if this SSD will work with this iMac. There are a few sizes (for Macbook Pro Retina and MacBook Air) and I can't find out which one will fit my Computer, but I think that 13 inch Retina MacBook's SSD Is the right one (Transcend JetDrive™ 720). I have texted Transcend support but still got no reply...


Just getting a base system with SSD would do, then you could add the HD later.


Unfortunately I cant' afford myself a custom iMac from Apple. I got my Computer from reseller and it was much cheeper. I found all parts that I need. Here is SSD that will work fine, anyway thanks for reply. http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other%20W...


Once you get it working let us know how it goes. Good Luck! Sorry couldn't help you more.
