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.

Crap... Had for two years and it fried - no chance of recovery; So I checked with OCZ to return it under the three year warranty it was sold with only to find out that it is no longer supported by OCZ and they will not honor the warranty. Nice truth in advertising! Look at this link http://ocz.com/consumer/support/warranty I called them just in case this was wrong and they confirmed that they do not support this drive and when I said the drive came with a three year warranty they said that was a Type-O and it was supposed to be 1 year. How convenient, I'm done with OCZ products!

I intended to buy 2 of these to put in Raid 0 for the ultimate performance. Since I'm a gamer and developer, being able to see the potential of the next level of disk IO is pretty important to me. I was up all night with these drives, and it turns out the frustration came from the fact that 1 of them was dead. Amazon is awesome on their return policy, so no hastles.

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.

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.
