5.0 out of 5 stars Fitting the Crucial CT256GB MB SSD, 10 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crucial CT256M4SSD2 256GB M4 SATA III 6Gb/s MLC 2.5 Inch Internal SSD (Personal Computers)
I received this product quickly and well packed. It was fitted to a MacPro with an OCZ 2.5 mounting bracket. This was not fitted in a HD bay, but in the optical drive bay, allowing me to reserve the HD spaces for future conventional HDs for storage. Due to the size of the SSD. It will be possible to fit two more of these SSDs if required into the Optical drive bay. This bay slides out of the MacPro and with cable extensions allows plenty of space for extra SSDs.(one extra hole for screw to be drilled) As with the Mac OS, I used the Disc Utility to restore Snow Leopard across to the SSD in minutes, it was up and running. I am using this drive for a Flight Simulator program. This gives rapid loading of scenery to the graphics card, which in turn takes the jerkiness off the screens when you go from one area tile to another. The booting up is very quick and with a small trim enabler program for Mac OS installed, stops the SSD clogging up with deleted programs.
Now that the SSDs are dropping in price, they are strongly recommended for heavy action progs, such as games, video editing,
flight simulation etc.
Crucial have a good reputation in Their field of memory products, giving a good support service. Since I installed this SSD, I have as yet, not given the SSD a second thought, just used it.

Wouldn't using the optical drive bay bottleneck your SSD to use 3Gb/s (SATA II) rather than 6Gb/s (SATA III)? You should put you HD in your optical drive bay and your SSD in your HD bay to get the best results.

I am using (with an adaptor plate) a Hard Drive bay for the SSD for the O/S and it is plugged into the 6Gb/s SATA III socket.
