Kelperian, London Retired

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to install on Apple Mac products, SSD can be fitted in
about 20 mins.

I have fitted 5 of these OCZ Technology 512GB & 256GB Vertex 4 M SSD - Solid State Drive - VTX4-25SAT3-512G. & VTX4-25SAT3-256G

Macbook pro - 2008 model has a 3gb interface, is returning 240mb/s
read & write ( 256GB version)

Mac book pro 2011 model has 6mb/s interface is returning near 480mb/s speeds read & write ( 256gb version)

Thee Imac - 2008 models have same 3gb interface are returning 240mb/s speeds read & write ( 256 & 512 GB versions

I have found the Vertex 4 series to be the most compatible with Mac products. Additionally, I fitted a Vertex Plus 256GB into a Mini mac, with 3mb/s interface that works great at 200mb/s read & write

Hope the above helps anybody who is looking for an Apple Mac SSD upgrade.

Best regards
K
