Great SSD for older MacBook
1 June 2014
Excerpt: I got this for my 2010 MacBook Pro, having read various comparisons of SSD performance in older model Macs. This SSD works really well; even at 3Gb/s bus speed it's totally worth the upgrade for faster performance. Some other drives claim to work, but perform very badly below spec in a 3Gb/s context. The SMART tools from Samsung don't work with OSX, so I suggest you budget for an app like TrimEnabler to make the most of the drive.
Pros: performs well in older macs
Cons: data migration requires extras, smart tools don't work on mac, trim not enabled by default on mac
Excerpt: Was a good purchase, transaction went smoothly, received product in good condition in a timely manner, would recommend this vendor to others. Will purchase this item again when needed and will recommend to other technicians in my area.
Excerpt: I did a lot of researching before I purchased this SSD and found it was rated highly on (not giving name of site, but I heard from my friend TOM, who is very good with 'hardware'...) and other review sites. I upgraded from a traditional HDD so obviously it is much faster. That goes without saying.
Excerpt: This is a very fast unit that works well. For a top end unit it would have been nice to have some more installation hardware provided. I tried to set this up with AHCI...changed the BIOS and Windows registry, but it still will not go into AHCI mode...it may be a Windows issue. It would be nice if the provided software would perfom this task.
