    I am very happy with my Crucial drive in MBP, and I only went with OCZ because Crucials are back ordered.

    What do you expect? The Core 2 is the lowest end drive family they have (after solid). If you wanted good writes and the such, you should have invested in an OCZ Vertex.

    The seek latency time advantage is what matters with an SSD.

    In the end, that SSD is still faster than most SATA hard drives on the market.

    I have an OCZ Core on my MP and I'm pretty happy with it. Certainly there are faster options but you get what you pay for. I use mine in conjunction with magnetic drives for most of my data. (which I would need to do either way due to smaller SSD sizes -- so I figure it's best of both worlds)
