OWC Mercury Pro 60gig SSD vs Corsair F40 40gig SSD Installed in: MacMini Late 2009 2.53ghz 4Gig ram A few of you may know that I had the Corsair F40 SSD a few weeks ago after reading some good reviews. I went ahead and purchased it at Frys for ($90) after rebate and with the feedback from everyone I took a look at the OWC SSD's as well. I chatted with customer service and they were very helpful and I decided to get the 60 Gig version. I cloned using DiskUtility and ran xbench. I did honestly notice a slightly faster boot time with the corsair, i don't exactly know why. What's even more amazing is that MS WORD seems to boot the slowest of all my launch programs, even PS4. (that is true for both drives). So if anyone is decided between OWC vs Corsair vs whatever brand..here are my results and my experiences. The main reason I went with the OWC SSD is their customer service and reliability respectively. I have had no problems with the corsair. I actually might have stuck with the Corsair had they had the F60 (60gig) in stock. Needless to say, I'm happy with the SSD upgrade. Sidenote: I have a OWC Mercury External with a 1TB caviar black hooked up via FireWire800 and I notice my boot time is significantly slower if my drive is turned on at boot. I'm not sure how to disable the Mac from seeking it perhaps. I've just tried to get used to turning it on and off at boot. Thanks for reading!
