SSD Transfer Speeds

Freestyler, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: After buying the 480G OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G I came to realize I wont be seeing the "near" 600gbs transfer speeds. I have a 2009 Mac Pro and found out the drive bay SATA max's out at 3gbs. In other words I could buy the cheaper Mercury Electra 3G and see the same results for less money. Or go the other route, spend more money bypass the SATA and connect through the PCIe and see the advertized figures of 800bps.

Amazing Upgrade for MacPro (mid-2010)

Stefan Bucher, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Had a colleague not pushed me, I'd have been too freaked out by all the old reviews about SSDs, but this is damn near miraculous! I have a fairly souped up tower, but swapping my boot drive from an old Maxtor 7,200rpm to this SSD? It's like I have a new machine! Adobe CS apps start in less than 10 seconds, Mail starts instantly and is much more responsive. It's a marvel!

best upgrade for any Mac or PC

HomerKSA, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Breathing new life to an Old Mac or PC! i try to stay unbiased with apple products to the best of my ability. I think what i stumbled upon on this guide deserves a shot even by WinTel users as well. The situation: Old iMac 24'' 2008 Internal 5.25 drives had died twice Recovered system via SuperDuper backups Died again recently This time did not want to extend 2 days to install a new hard drive The Opted solution: external SSD Drive which essentially replaces the need to...

This hard drive crashed in less than 1 year.

Matt, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: The company is willing to replace it. It does have a 5 year warranty. But, it crashed without reason - and it's going to cost me nearly four times the amount of the hard drive itself to recover the data now stuck on this device. OWC isn't held liable, and I know it's on me for not backing up with paranoid frequency. I'll be purchasing from Samsung in the future - this has been a horrific experience. My business has suffered as a result!

Incredibly fast drive!

Mitchell Smith, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: When I purchased the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD to replace the stock Apple 256 GB SSD in my 2011 15" MacBook Pro (2.3 GHz i7 with 16 GB of RAM), I expected it to be faster. I figured that the Apple SSD was about 30% faster than the standard MacBook Pro hard drive, so maybe the Mercury would be....50% faster? After installing it, I can't believe how fast this thing is.
