Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: It is worth it to show off, as you are the only person who has the mindset and wallet to purchase such an item. Worth more than its weight in gold (Literally!!!). Alex says its ok too. PS, it works well to install internet explorer, so facebook runs really quickly. PPS, only get this for mac, as pc is much much worse and it would be stupid to use it on a computer. PPPS, I couldn't work out how to use this on my iPhone, and the man in the shop wouldn't help.
