Installation was easy. Before installing, make sure that your laptop is plugged in, and that you suspend any power-off settings (like hibernation mode). Then you can begin the transfer.
First, you place the OCZ into the external hard drive. Then you connect the OCZ to your laptop with a USB or other cable. Third, you follow the instruction booklet provided by OCZ to format and partition the drive. Fourth, you start the Acronis software, which indicates that it recognizes the SSD and is ready to transfer all of the contents of the old drive to the new drive. Fifth, if your experience is like mine, the first time you run Acronis you will get an error message about a partition mismatch and the system will reboot. Sixth, after running Acronis the second time, it will run just fine. The transfer will take quite a while, after which Acronis will indicate that the transfer was successful.
After the transfer is complete, you power down your system and remove the battery.Read more ›
For those of you concerned about swapping out either the RAM or the HD - don't be. As to the physical part of doing the swap, there are plenty of videos online showing how - and if you can handle a screwdriver without hurting yourself, you can do it! I was a bit worried about my programs and data, so I backed everything up before starting, but on a Mac, it is easy to duplicate your HD to the new SSD. You will need at least a cable - and the type of cable determines how long the duplication will take. I used a USB 2.0/ SATA (the cheapest for my MBP), but a Thunderbolt (or USB 3.0, which my MBP does not have)/SATA would have been a whole lot faster. After swapping the new SSD in, most of my programs worked seamlessly - though several of them required me to re-enter my proof of purchase code. And after that, it was like I had a whole new laptop!
I tested the drive with AS SSD benchmark utility. I recieved a 397 score for reads and a 396 score for writes and an over all score of 1005.
Haven't done any specific tests, but it is blazingly fast. Startup happens in about 3 seconds and programs seem to open almost instantaneously. I used to find myself listening for the hard drive to make sure the computer was working, but now it just does what I click on -- and the Vertex drive is silent anyway. The whole laptop is noticably cooler on my lap now and the battery seems to be lasting about 50% longer.
I'm happy with this in about everyway possible after a week of use. I've been recommending jumping to solid state drives to everyone in the past week.

Great drive in my 2011 MacBook Pro. I went Retina, so now it is just a travel drive needed for different tasks on occasion. I never had an issue with the drive.Published 19 months ago by Matt Parker
