Used this as an upgrade for my Macbook Pro. I had already enabled the Trim hack in advance for OSX. Put the drive in an external caddy and used Disk Utility to clone the original drive. Swapped them over and booted up. Initial boot took around 30 seconds to boot up completely - something I believe to be common. I rebooted the Macbook and the next boot took 10 seconds to completely boot and all subsequent boots have remained the same. All operations have sped up including things like audio conversions in iTunes to the obvious like application boot up times - Aperture in 1 second, most other apps even quicker. Shutting down is also improved, from clicking shut down to a completely powered down machine is 1 second.
I have not encountered a single issue so far in almost a month of use - this is running the latest R201 firmware for the SSD. I recommend this drive for Macbook users although there may be a compatibility issue with 2008 Mac users with nVidia chipsets - something that is common with Sandforce based drives. The drives firmware can be updated on a Mac by downloading the firmware and creating a bootable CD using Disk Utility.

Size: 120GBPackage Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This SanDisk 120GB SSD is 2.5" in size, which is physically the size of a standard laptop hard disk. This means it will slot nicely into virtually any laptop as a replacement drive, but out of the box it won't fit into a standard 3.5" drive bay on a desktop computer. You will need a 2.5" to 3.5" converter bracket, but this isn't supplied, so you will need to purchase one of these yourself if you want to mount this correctly in a desktop PC. Fortunately, they are pretty cheap and readily available on Amazon, like this one here Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-2B 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch SATA HDD/SSD Converter - Black. Having SATA connections makes physically installing the drive a breeze, once you have the right adaptor to hold the drive in place. For laptops it's usually a matter of simply pulling out your old drive and slotting this one in.

It's a SATA III drive, and is also backwards compatible with SATA II. The bandwidth limit of SATA II is 3 Gb/s, and this drive reads at a theoretical maximum rate of 550 MB/s (about 4.4 Gb/s), so in theory you will be limiting the speed of this SSD by using a SATA II connection. In reality however, there won't be that much of a difference as the peak speed of an SSD drive is rarely ever reached in everyday use. Using a SATA III connection will give you a bandwidth limit of 6 Gb/s, which will theoretically allow you to max out your SSD's read/write speed.

Being a solid state drive, it is totally silent and has no moving parts, so shouldn't get hot or wear out with use.

Pros: - Very fast, both from my experience with it, and from currently published "professional" reviews applying their benchmarks. FWIW, this drive falls into Tom's HW classification of a "Tier One" SSD as of the writing of this review. The site doesn't list this model specifically because they haven't reviewed it yet. But a 240GB-256GB drive with 2nd-gen Sandforce and Toggle NAND are Tier One.

- Stable so far -- in 3 weeks of heavy use have not had a blue screen yet.

- Sandisk makes their own NAND for this drive, which on paper is a good thing for reliability because they can cherry-pick their own NAND and are familiar with it. This advantage is cited frequently for Intel and Samsung SSD's, which both make their respective NAND's.

Cons: - Sandforce controller. A con for some who have been burned by previous SSD's with Sandforce controllers, or who simply don't trust Sandforce. To me, it seems like the quality of a Sandforce controller has a lot to do with each SSD manufacturer's implementation and the firmware that is used. OCZ's tend to be notorious for issues related to the firmware. I'm comfortable enough that the firmware used in the drive is stable. However, those uncomfortable with Sandforce can look to the Samsung 830 (which uses Samsung's own controller) or the Crucial m4 (which uses a Marvell controller).

- No disk copy software or mounting bracket provided. But if you want to install this in a desktop that doesn't have a 2.5" bay, you either have to buy a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter or zip-tie it in.

Other Thoughts: For those contemplating ANY SSD, it will make a big change in your computing. On my i7-3770k with this SSD and 9 HDD's, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit boots from BIOS startup to login screen in about 19 seconds flat.

And yes! it would also be great upgrade for a PC but you can get away running a smaller SSD for a boot drive if you have enough hard drives in your system (I have 5 so a 128GB SSD is fine for my needs!)

This SSD was initially my 2nd choice as I was originally after a Samsung 830 which was priced a little cheaper back then and priced so well that it was sold out almost instantly everywhere, I had spent a week with my order back-ordered with no solid ETA on new stock. So i gave up and decided to order one of these Sandisk SSDs after reading some great reviews.

the SSD has been out for roughly about 3 months according to quite a few reviews but hasnt gathered much publicity until the massive spate of price drops everywhere.

I bought this SSD to replace the hard drive in a rather weak HP DM1 (3200SA)laptop running a AMD E-350. Its a good laptop but its rather slow and can be quite sluggish when there are few windows open and applications running in the background.

Having already put a Crucial M4 in my desktop PC a few months back, I knew exactly what to expect when I installed this SSD into my laptop and it has transformed this little laptop into a rocketship!!!

==== HP DM1 USERS =====

I was cautious at first and worried if i would be able to run the SSD at its fully rated speed after hearing many reports that the Sata controller for AMD based DM1s were really weak, but i was pleasently suprised after running a quick ATTO benchmark.

I am getting the FULL speed out of this SSD.

Unlike most newer models of DM1 that came after the 3200 series, mine shipped with a 7200RPM Western Digital Scorpio Black.
