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.) Finally, there is a free program called TrimEnabler that enables TRIM (which tells the SSD which blocks the OS is not using, so it can pre-erase them for later use instead of having to first erase and then re-write (because SSDs need to write to blank blocks instead of over-writing written blocks.) TrimEnabler saw my SSD and allowed me to enable TRIM without using Terminal to modify system files. ("Lion" and >10.6.8 permit TRIM support.) The main reason for this review is to help others with Macs do what I did with shortcut info and less research.
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.
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.
Drive #3 came in the following week. Also dead.
Drive #4 is on its way.
I've been running my OS solely off of the 1 working drive for about 3 weeks now. Its like a dream. Windows 7 boots up only about 10 seconds after the boot up post signal. I benchmarked the drive as well and came in just as advertised for read and write rates. Great drive! Its just testing my patience with the % of DOA, so that's why I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
