Despite my initial concern of using this with a Mac, as there have been some rumors out there of incompatibility or problems arising from using Intel SSDs in MBP, I found no issues at all to date with this drive. Although the improvement is not quite as noticeable as bumping from 4 GB RAM to 8 GB RAM, there is a vast improvement in speed and performance in my MBP.
The install was easy enough, I loaded my new Intel SSD in an external enclosure, a Sabrent USB 3.0 box, and despite all of the suggestions of using CCC, I decided to do a clean install of Mountain Lion from a USB stick and use Migration Assistant to move all of my data/users over. After this, simply run a Software Update to make sure everything is up to date and do a reboot, making sure to boot to the IntelSSD in your external enclosure just to confirm that you can indeed boot to the drive before installing it in your MBP. Install in the MBP was easy enough following the OWC guides, and after an slow boot while the MBP discovers my new drive, I was off to the races.
I have encountered no problems at all using the Intel 330 series SSD in my MacBook, and the drive runs like a breeze despite not having a new enough model to fully take advantage of the SATA III capabilities, it still functions well enough to not notice, even when working on very demanding development projects or gaming.Read more ›

works great. All intel ssds are well made and very fast. This made my 3 year old laptop fast as a brand new one.Published on November 29, 2013 by Wise Shopper
no it's the fastest on the block, but stability is what I was looking for and so far I've gotten it out of this product.Published on July 1, 2013 by Joseph Cervi
Reason PC sales are slumping is because this hard drive combined with Windows 8 makes even my super old dual core AMD screaming fast. Why buy a new computer?Published on April 30, 2013 by R. Gould
Still just as fast (and faster than original HDD) as when first installed. System consistently boots up in about 30 seconds and applications open in a snap.Published on March 18, 2013 by T. Hill
Installed it into a Sony Vaio after its HDD quit after 3 months of service. Rather than send the Vaio back to Amazon, shelled out for this SSD and now the laptop is superfast... Read morePublished on February 21, 2013 by Anurag Goel
Just installed this in my mid-2010 MBP, and its works great. Boot time is significantly reduced, however no other noticeable changes in performance.Published on February 19, 2013 by dmh
