Summary: I've installed numerous SSD drives. For a network client machine this is all the space needed for apps and o/s. Buying the Intel brand allows you to make use of the free cloning software that makes a bit by bit clone of your old hard drive so it is very quick to get up and running with these. With adequate memory, changing to one of these drives makes the difference between buying a new computer or getting a few more years of usable life.
Summary: I bought 2 of these bad boys for two of my studio workstations. They are wicked fast out of the box, both systems boot up in about 5 seconds after the motherboard operation screen. The data transfer rate is screaming fast. I am awaiting for the speed degradation that I have read many reviews about, for now I will bask in the glory. ---- 2 months later The hard drives are still very fast.
Summary: I'm using this drive as an ESXi host cache, and it's been great. It's swapping rather large sets of data for a vertica cluster and performing like a champ. I replaced a bad buy from OCZ with this little fella, and my IO speeds nearly doubled. Highly recommended.
Summary: The reason this product is rated so high is because it is an amazing positive boost to go from using a regular hard drive to a SSD. So first-time SSD adopters, like myself, love this drive. If you don't own one - then you should get one. It will probably do more for your computer than upgrading the CPU, or getting more RAM (so long as you already have 4 GB). However that doesn't meant it is better than the other SSDs.
Summary: Using my My Mac Mini as a 24/7 file server and media hub. I wanted something that would run cooler and more reliably than a mechanical hard drive. This SSD did the trick. Easy to install following iFixit web site and has been running flawlessly.
Summary: The drive is excellent and I would have given 5-stars. The enclosed bracket is not designed to fit drive slot in Mac Pro. I just plugged the drive in one of the drive bays and left it hanging there. I then ordered another bracket for $15 from amazon. Pro: Mac Pro (1,1) early 2006 Intel model used to take 1-2 minutes to boot having Western Digital Caviar Black drive. Now, it take 5-7 seconds. Cons: Enclosed bracket is not designed to fit Mac Pro.
