Don't buy this if you run OSX
on 16 October 2013
If you have a mac, I would advise people to steer well clear of this. Got it in the post, installed it, copied over the harddrive, restored it from time machine, got into my mac finally after a few hours and it was slower than before. It got the dreaded 'beachball' (swirly mac logo) several times in the first day which essentially means it had crashed. So it was crashing 5-6 times a day if not more while I was performing simple tasks like going on instagram and facebook. Pathetic.
I was told that in order to fix these issues I needed to install the firmware update for the drive, so I tried to do this, but Samsung and Apple do not play nice together. Firstly there is no straight firmware update application for mac like there is for Windows, which is s***ty. Secondly, I put the ISO image as instructed onto a CD and burnt the CD. I thought it would work fine but when I tried to boot from the CD to install the firmware the CD appeared and it was called "Windows"....... I facepalmed at this moment as I knew it wasn't going to work and there would be no hope for me as a mac user.
I managed to get into the DOS on the ISO but it gave me an error message, so I just gave up in the end and put my old Crucial back in as the SSD. Crucial are not a stupid company unlike Samsung, and as they realize that alot of mac owners need SSD firmware updates, they have created them in a much more intelligent fashion.
DO NOT BUY IF YOUR USING AN APPLE PRODUCT.
