This product rocks so far! Prices have been coming down, and I wanted an SSD that had the same capacity as my internal hard drive.

I have a 15-inch Macintosh unibody laptop (mid 2010) running OS X 10.7 "Lion" with a 500G internal hard drive. A friend put a roughly 120G SSD in his, and put the old HD in place of the DVD-ROM using an adapter you can find on Amazon. (He put the "superdrive" in an external USB enclosure, also available on Amazon.) (I decided I like having an internal DVD drive.) After research, I bought a $12 2.5" USB SATA enclosure and put the SSD in it. I have OS X on my "Time Machine" external backup drive. After cleaning up my internal drive to get rid of junk (using free program "Disk Inventory X" to find big wasteful files,) I booted from the backup drive so my internal drive was static and could be copied to SSD. Then I cloned my internal drive to the SSD using a program I bought called SuperDuper (which has always performed well for me.) (You might try Carbon Copy Cloner too.) For a day, I ran my system from the cloned version via USB choosing it as the startup disk. I also did a backup of it. Then I put the SSD inside my Mac in place of my old HD (my unibody Mac opens with three long and a bunch of short screws on the bottom. (While in there, you may as well insert the maximum RAM too.) I re-booted with no external drives attached--blazingly fast! (And I don't even take advantage of the 6GB transfer because my Mac is old--but if I get a new one this SSD drive is going into it.

Bought to use with Windows 7 Pro. System works great and is quiet. I use this drive with a Gigabyte z68 m/b and do fine. It is much faster than a conventional HD. It's very cool running. Got this drive in Sept off a bid site, and so far it's working well. Octane done did it.

Update, April 2013:
The specs since September 2012: the OCZ SSD drive, Gigabyte Z68MA m/b, i7 2600K cpu, GE force 620, 650, then 660ti g-card, 32mb ram & 950W pc power&cooling psu. The only thing I will be doing is upgrading to the 3770K chip and a 680 card later on for this system. My drive is nowhere near full with a bunch of games etc. on it. It's still going strong with no problems at all. Still on Win7, will keep 7 on this system.

Time to find a second TB SSD and build a second system.
Will update in approx. 6 mos.

What can I say. This drive is the fastest I've ever used. I have mechanical drives and hydrid drives. Neither can come close to the performance of this Octane unit. For those of you that live by your WEI score, this unit posted a 7.9! Windows boots much quicker now than before. Virus scans, general tasks and game loadings are ridiculously quick. I can't say enough good things about this unit. I bought the OEM version, so the only thing that comes is the drive itself: no cables,no screws,no mounting bracket, and no software. Not an issue for me since my 650D case came with the mounting bracket and the screws. My motherboard came with extra SATA 6 cables. I downloaded a freeware program to migrate my software to the SSD. Everything is working great.

GRIPES:
1. $$$/GB - guess that real performance costs!
2. Reliability: only time will tell how long this unit lives. The unit comes with a lengthy 3 yr warranty, so I expect a long life from the unit.

This drive replaced the ailing, slow 5400 rpm hard drive that originally came with my mid-2009 Macbook Pro model. Prior to using it on my machine I used an external SATA enclosure to mount it on the system and format it for OS X using Disk Utility. Then used SuperDuper to create a mirror image (a copy) of my original hard drive, which was ready after 2.5 hours. From there, it was time to open the machine and replace my old drive with this one (if you have the MBP manuals, this is extremely easy to do). Install and turn the MBP back on. Everything worked as expected and no further action was needed.

The main difference, obviously, is in performance. Photoshop CS5 now opens in less than 6 seconds on my machine. I haven't gotten to the 5-second boot starts that some SSD owners claim yet (probably because I just migrated my existing OS X install rather than fresh installing it), but at least booting time feels half as short as it used to be. Most applications in general feel snappier and more responsive. There are no moving parts to a SSD drive so operation is absoutely silent, and it should give you a bit more of battery life as well. This drive also has TRIM support, so if you want to add extra performance improvement on your MBP, get Trim Enabler (Google it) run it and restart. I'm personally very pleased with this drive and my expectations have been met so far. If you are not ready to change your Mac to a new model (or even if you are), getting this is the next best thing as far as upgrades go.

This is mostly for Mac users: I have installed this drive inside a mid 2009 15" MacBook Pro 5,3. I bought this drive based on other reviews. Turns out it was NOT worth it. It's not "blazing fast" as some are suggesting, but it does make a difference. I've had some issues running Snow Leopard at the beginning, but only because the drive came with an older firmware version. As soon as I updated to the latest firmware revision using the boot tool downloadable on the OCZ website, all worked flawlessly. I have also upgraded to the maximum of RAM in the process, now it really feels like I have a new computer. A much better alternative to buying a new Mac. Using TrimEnabler seemed to make a difference in overall performance as well, even if its benefits are supposed to be more noticeable over long term usage. Even if there are newer versions of this SSD, I recommend this one as it is the fastest in its class according to the specs. I got this for $399 Prime price. A good deal, considering other resellers' price.

Important updates on this review: the SSD failed after 2 weeks of normal usage, while copying a large number of files from an external HDD (about 200Gb). The SSD and the entire computer froze about 95% into the copying process and the SSD was unusable after that. It has been returned to their RMA facility, they were extremely helpful and prompt in delivering a replacement. I have received a Vertex 4 as a replacement for the dead Octane. The Vertex 4 worked for about one hour, then crashed in an identical way with the previous one (Octane). A RMA ticket has been issued immediately and the drive was send for replacement 2 days ago. I'm now waiting for a replacement. I'll update this when I get a working drive.
