I purchased this OCZ 512 Gb Vertex 4 SSD (Solid State Drive) to get better performance from my late-2009 Lenovo x201 laptop. My old hard drive was also a 512 Gb, so I didn't get more storage onboard, but with the OCZ upgrade kit OCZ Technology SSD Upgrade Kit With Acronis True Image HD Software CD (Windows), SATA III 6Gbp/s Data Cable (OCZSSDUPGDKIT1) (sold separately) or similar (consisting of a 2.5" external hard drive case, cable, and transfer software -- such as Acronis, downloadable fully functional from their website) my old drive now makes a nice 512 Gb external hard drive.

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.

After having my MacBook Pro for almost 2 years, I decided to upgrade my RAM and hard drive - instead of just being irritated at how slow it was becoming (programs are bigger and the file size of digital pictures - especially when shooting in RAW - are huge). After a trip to the Apple Store, I did the RAM first - which probably helped some, but it wasn't really that noticeable (I went from 8 to 16GB). Then the hard drive. The OCZ was highly recommended - and after swapping it in, I've never had a faster computer! When turning it on, it fires right up - and I no longer wait for programs to start - I just click on them and they do. I really wish I had done it sooner.
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!

This is the first SSD I ever had, I put this sucker into a laptop. I made the laptop 1TB 5400 rpm SATA drive into an data drive, The laptop is blazing fast now.

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.

I wanted this for my Mac and ordered the 512GB non "M" unit on another Amazon link but received this "M" unit. The "M" part means Micron nand and without the "M" means Intel nand. I contacted Amazon and they responded quickly as usual and I was told to return for refund, exchange or get a price adjustment. After some analysis I determine the differences between the two was minimal so I took the price adjustment. This turned out to be a great deal. I installed it in an external docking station, formatted, and used Carbon Copy Cloner to transfer all my stuff and it worked great. The speeds are lower than advertised. I got write at 400 and read at 434 but still very fast. Now the reliability testing starts. I will update this review later if any issue comes up. I gave it 4 stars do to lower speeds than advertised. I will say that the packaging made me nervous as Amazon shipped the unit in its original small box in a non padded envelope but the unit was OK. Seems to me that it should have been put in a box with bubble wrap.

Got the 512GB OCZ Vertex 4 on the Black Friday deal (over $100 off) for use in my 2007 17" Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro running OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2. Hadn't ever opened that MacBook Pro, but found good instructions on the web and had it installed in no time (Torx T6 was a bit hard to find, but The Shack had it). Firmware was already upgraded to 1.5 so I didn't have to mess with that. Plugged my old drive into a Seagate GoFlex adapter and was able to copy all of the data as part of the OSX install procedure.

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.
