    I got this one and installed it last week. Didn't have any problems with it and my macbook is blazing fast now.

    Only problem I've had is I can't enable noatime (which is recommended to reduce the number of writes to the drive)... seems to be an issue with SL 10.6.6 though.

    I use it my 15" i5. No complaints here. At that price, go for it.

    Cool. Did either of you notice a difference with battery life with this drive? I also have 2010 15 inch with i5.

    I haven't really kept track to be honest. At the very least I would say it's the same, if not better.

    That's a really good price given the current rate for SSD's is about $2/GB.

    I mean anything is going to be better than what you have right now and at that price how can you pass it up?

    other than the lack of capacity, it works great

    Some negatives peaople speak about in reviews: JMicron controller, stuttering, slower than other SSD, degrading over time. Seems that you get what you pay for. Still quicker than HDD
    Also a battery eater, according to a MacBook Pro owner on Amazon review..
