Summary: Died after less than 2 years of use as a boot drive. On the one hand I was glad of the warranty (5 years for this model when purchased directly from OWC), but disappointed I had to exercise that warranty.
Summary: This unit was used to replace the 500GB drive in my Mac Mini. HALF of the storage I had, but Macs store extremely efficiently than "Fat" OS's (Windows). The increase in speed is truly AMAZING - and I'm still only using about ⅓ of it's capacity - and I have TONS of files of all kinds.
Excerpt: So far it's been a reliable product. Solid build. Easy to use with my computer. Currently pairing it with the Blackmagic Hyperdeck Shuttle. I can't compare this to many SSDs, as I've not used many, but I can say that this one has not let me down and I'll be looking to this make in the future.
