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.
Summary: I used this SSD as the primary drive on my 2011 iMac and it fitted and just worked. Boot up times and overall response in using applications is very quick. Running Final Cut Pro X application on the primary SSD and using the 2nd internal disk drive for the scratch drive has dramatically improved it's response time when using the application. When the overall price drops for SSD's I will replace the 2nd disk drive as well which will improve speeds even more.
Summary: i ordered one of these directly from OWC Macsales in the US back in October last year and MUST say, that although i have a Mac Pro which is no slouch, running it with the OWC SSD as the Boot Drive has made a world of difference. Almost everything is instantaneous! The 240GB stated, by the way, is the actual useable capacity unlike others that may say they are 256GB but fail to mention that a chunk is already eaten up with drive necessities . . . .
