Summary: ---- UPDATE ---- Even after more than 8 months, OCZ replaced my Petrol SSD for a newer Agility 4, wich so far has worked incredibly well. Kudos to OCZ for caring about their customer, but the two star rating remains for the horrible Petrol drive. ---- Bought this as my first SSD on February 2012. This is the fifth time I've had to reinstall my OS, because after just a few weeks I start getting file corruption errors.
Summary: I received the OCZ Petrol today to install into my ageing 2007 Macbook Black, hoping that it would improve the speed considerably. If your Mac/PC is as old as mine then it is probably very slow, very noisy, and struggling to load large apps and movies. With this SSD the amount of time it takes to load programs and files is substantially reduced. The boot up time is now less than 20 seconds, typical applications load instantly, file transfers are much faster.
