So Intel took the Sandforce controller and made it into the perfect SSD controller the competition couldn't,
I installed in this into a Mid 2010 13 inch Macbook Pro and loaded Snow Leopard and a 30GB partition of windows 7 onto it.
Two things to keep in mind
1) turn on trim on both windows and mac os x,
on windows this optimization guide is pretty useful: [...] [google for Sean's Windows 7 guide]
on mac os x you need an app called "Trim enabler", and at least 10.6.8 of OS X.
this guide is also useful:[...] [google for Ssdtweak Mac OS X]
2) turn off disk sleep on both os x and windows energy settings, so that the disk can use its garbage collection while idling
No freezes/blue screens/os x beachballs whatsoever, with no noticeable real world performance loss over more expensive drives.
Worth noting is an incompatibility with the Nvidia MCP79 chipset on old laptops causing slow SATA speeds.
Overall the most affordable SSD around for top notch performance, highly recommended,
if you were to have any problems I'd recommend a Samsung second, but personally never had any problems with Intel.
ALSO WORTH NOTING: I bought this SSD in a local shop after amazon lost my package. So far it's been a very slow process retrieving my cash credit,
next time I'll think twice before ordering expensive electronics over amazon.
