Are there any hard drive differences between this and the Mid-2013?

I'm looking to upgrade my Macbook's hard drive to the 940GB version. The site doesn't include the Mid-2014 version in the list of Macbook Pros that it's compatible with. However, the Jetdrive 725 IS compatible with the Mid-2013 version. Are there any differences?http://www.transcend-info.com/apple/jetd...

As to what SSD is compatible with the newer '14 model.

Apple has been tweaking the SSD firmware on the M.2 SSD's so far they have three different firmware revs across the MacBook Pro models. It also turns out each rev of firmware is only compatible with a given model so one can't switch what looks like the exact same M.2 module between the different systems. Talk about confusion!

So far we have stayed away from trying to figure this all out. We where hoping Apple (and the other system manufactures) would have stabilized things by now so the SSD's would be standardized like SATA drives as well as be more upgradable and interoperable.

I think your best bet here is to talk with Transcend sales directly and also make sure you can return it if it doesn't work.

Their Web site does not list it as workable. You have a MacBookPro11,2 or MacBookPro11,3 so I would say it likely isn't. Sorry ;-{
