Summary: I'm not overly impressed with this drive. Corsair doesn't list Read/Write speeds for their 128GB drive and probably for good reason. These smaller capacity drives never get the technology of their larger capacity brethren. Spend a little extra to get a larger capacity drive with better speeds. I'd also recommend Crucial or Samsung instead.
Summary: Loaded the operating system and critical software and games on this drive. Sped the computer up SIGNIFICANTLY. Ran the speed test with Windows 7 and 7.9 across the board whereas the hard drive had limited the score to 5.9 before - just makes sense!!!

Summary: Works as advertised. I have found an immediate boost in performance over my 7200 rpm hdd. Make sure to read a few guides so you know you're getting the most out of your ssd. Some general tips you should google for if not in a guide: 1) Turn off automatic defrag. 2) Make sure your sectors are properly aligned 3) Set TRIM to 0.
Summary: This is my step-by-step guide on how to upgrade your MacBook or MacBook Pro (you cannot easily replace the hard drives on MacBook Airs). First be sure to check through the different sizes on the hard drives because sometimes there is not a big price difference for larger hard drives. For example at the time of writing this review the 480 GB hard drive is only seven dollars more than the 360 GB hard drive. Only seven dollars more for 120 more gigabytes.
Summary: Pretty self explanatory; this ssd died on me without warning after about a year. It presented no warning symptoms and left me with a useless computer for a weekend. I won't be buying a Corsair ssd again.
