Summary: Great drive ... still in use today. Cannot remember when I bought this, but it was at least 1 year ago. Still going strong and fast. Not as fast (not slow but some do outperform due the types of chips used and architecture) as some in some types of operations, but reliability + size + price + great performance is no-brainer to get one. This just works. I like that.
Summary: I have a Macbook Pro 15" Retina (Macbook pro 8,2) and it came with a 7200 RPM 500GB Hard Drive. I replace that with this. My startup time with teh old HD was 48 seconds...now I start up in 16 seconds and my fans are rarely on (except when using After Effects for a while, lol) Installation was easy, I got a kit from OWC (Other World Computing). I have had no issues at all with this SSD. I even got a 2nd 256GB SSD and put it in place of my Optical drive.
Summary: Placed 3 of these in a dell 720 as a dev server. They are sitting as individual drives on a perc controller, so no ssd in vmware. But they are fast and have stood up to a few months of dev, which is a torture test.
Summary: Swapped out the 7200 RPM SATA drive that came with my Lenova laptop. The improved speed and response, and works well with Win 8.1. Excellent, fast, doesn't heat up like conventional drives, and uses less battery.
