    Is there any reason I shouldnt buy this 120gb SSD from newegg.ca for $229? I'd like to upgrade my 15" 2010 base MacBook pro I purchased yesterday and just want a fast reliable SSD at a good price. Does this SSD have any of the sleep issues I've read about with other drives? Thanks in advance.

    It's a really nice drive. I have 2 80gb one G1 and one G2. The only thing is that my 2008 mbp sometimes has problems waking up from sleep since I put the drive in. I replaced the regular hdd not in the ODD bay. The second one is in my imac and that one is fine so far.

    I got an 80GB X25-M in a late 2008 unibody 15". I got it from newegg a year ago, and I've never had any sort of issues with it.

    I imagine this 120GB model is the same, just a bit faster and has more flash chips in it.
