I have been contemplating purchase of an OCZ Vertex 4 512gb, but I just read(oh, no) that I cannot use an external usb, bus powered enclosure with the Vertex because it can mess up the firmware in the drive. If I can't use the external enclosure with the Vertex, can I - in somebody's experience - successfully use it to clone with a Samsung SSD for instance? I was really interested in the Vertex, but don't want to come out with a damaged SSD before I get started with the install. I'm finding that getting an SSD for a Mac is not an easy undertaking. OCZ has easy Mac firmware downloads while the Sammys don't support firmware downloads for the Mac. I just want a simple SSD solution for my MBP. Sammy or OCZ doesn't matter. I'm not even sure that firmware upgrades are that important beyond having the most current version installed. Any help, suggestions, or clarification would be much appreciated. Thanks.
