This is a fast USB 3.0 16GB USB flash drive, we have used our own guide, to create a installer USB for Mac OSX El Capitan.

We are not selling OSX El Capitan, you can download and install MacOS for free. However Apple have made it harder to install the latest OS on your Mac. An installer USB makes life easier. Use the link above if you want to create your own USB installer for free.

Fresh install
If you want to install El Capitan, and you have a new drive installed in your Mac, all you have to do is plug in this USB and start the Mac. The USB should build MacOS Utitlities page. From there use Disk Utilities to initialise the drive (Extended Journal). Then install new MacOS.
If you get a question mark or a spinning globe of the world, shut the mac down (holding down power button for 5 seconds) and restart Mac holding down option key. A yellow drive should appear called OSX El Capitan installer. Click on that drive.

Cloning with Disk Utilities
If you are having troubling cloning with SuperDuper! you might need to block level clone. SuperDuper is a file level cloner. Carbon Copy Cloner and Mac's built in Disk Utilities Restore are block level cloning software. The main difference is if there is a file that is corrupted or can't be cloned, SuperDuper! fails while a block level clone software keeps cloning.
Put the installer USB into the mac and restart holding down the Option key. The installer yellow USB disk image should appear, click on the image and the Mac will boot off the USB. The USB should build MacOS Utilities page. Plug your new SSD into the Mac on an available USB port via the cloning cable or external case. Use Disk Utilities to initialise the plugged in SSD (For El Capitan use Extended Journal). Once it is initialised, continue using Disk Utlities, select the new SSD from the left hand window. Click on Restore button on top menu. The choose Restore from: and select your original drive that is currently installed in your Mac. You are restoring onto the new SSD your current installed drive. Once restore has finished, shut down your Mac and install the new SSD. 
Please note both drives must be of the same format type (Extended Journal) to do a restore. 

USB Installer is corrupted
The error message when installing OS X is "This copy of the install OS X El Capitan application can't be verified. It may have been corrupted or tampered with during downloading". This is a check Apple has introduced with system installation. They don't want old OS versions installed, better to move everyone to new OS, and new hardware (buy a new mac). There is a simple work around. Reset your system date to OS release date or close to OS release date and you can now install the OS.
If you are in OS Utilities, the top menu should have a drop down that has Terminal. Run terminal and then type this in:
For El Capitan install use: date 1001200015 [enter]
You can check the date is now 2015 by typing: date [enter], it should now display: October 1st 20:00 (or 8pm) 2015. The date after El Capitan's release. You can now install El Capitan without an error.
Dates for other systems are:
Yosemite: date 1017200014
Mavericks: date 1023200013

I haven't yet installed the upgrade as I will be claiming TRS cashback on an upcoming OS trip, but I assume it will be OK
