Summary: was think 600 when it appeared , now for this price is ok for a OS point of view. Boot is about 3-5 sec , shut down 1-2 sec. bought also a 250 Pro Samsung and let me tell you , that the package was just a simple cartoon box and a clear plastic sealed.
Summary: Replaced my main hard drive in my late 2008 MacBook Pro with this, and its been working great (I think I've had it ~1.5 yr). SSD speed has helped this computer stay relevant a bit longer. (I moved my original hard drive to the DVD spot for increased storage on the computer.
Summary: Works as promised. Replaced a 500GB 7200RPM traditional hard drive with this. My only compliant is that I couldn't find sizes larger than 160GB for SATA II unless you bump up to SATA III. Unfortunately, my laptop doesn't support SATA III.
Summary: Very nice drive. My VMware windows 7 boots in 10 sec. MacOS 15-20 sec. No waiting time to load any app. Insanely fast and hide improvement over regular drives. Plus the live span is 240 years :) and no movable parts so you really do not care when you have to move your laptop.
Pros: Works flawlessly in my MacBook Pro early 2011. Trim is not supported in MacOS but the controller itself is supposed to do the cleaning. Very fast on reading and writing although writing is not near the max. Speeds: read 505 mb/s Write: 315 mb/s. theoretical max is 545/495 read/write
Cons: Still rather expensive and no firmware updates for Mac. You will have to attach it on a PC.
Summary: I got what I ordered at a fair price, delivered as promised, thanks vendor. The 320 isn't the latest & greatest, but it works. I heard of kinks in earlier releases, but not here. Literally, I plugged in, turned on, bios said hello, and we were off to the install races. And it is quiet.
Pros: bought this cause i noticed that even though i didn't have a lot of things running at start-up it still would take about 1 1/2mins to fully load. now it takes just over 20 seconds from when i press the power button to everything up and running.
Cons: only thing bad i can give this thing is that i did the rebate thing back in 11/28/11 and its now 3/20/12 and i still haven't seen my rebate. last thing on the rebate status page was: 2/6/2012 5:16:06 PM Reward Card processing... the 70 bucks was the main reason i decided to get it but i still hav...
Summary: Runs great. If you want to use your SSD with a 6 GB/s connection, you have to go to the 500 series. Remember SSDs are not a panacea. Perfect in a notebook or as a boot drive. Otherwise, use it judiciously. A hardware RAID 10 of fast drives will beat it.
