I *think* this is OK, but it doesn't work in my MacBook Pro
on 13 June 2014
I bought this to replace the HDD in my 2009 MacBook Pro. It is listed as guaranteed compatible by Crucial, but when I install it my machine constantly suffers kernel panics. Removing it is fine again. It works OK dual boot in a USB caddy, but not in the OptiBay drive. Crucial replaced it for me in case it was the SSD, but the new one is the same. Reading up it seems there is a problem with some 2009 MBPs and SSDs because of the transfer speeds, but I haven't managed to get to the bottom of it. It's sitting in a plastic bag beside my desk at the moment. My guess is the computer that's at fault, so ignore this unless you are putting it in a 2009 MacBook Pro!
