    If you are copying and transferring lots of large files, that's where you'll see your improvements. If not, I don't think you'll see good value for your dollar on the upgrade.

    Hardly any speed difference. Like the previous poster said, unless your moving or copying a lot of files. As for opening and boot up times. Maybe one or two seconds slower. Even then, that's still a maybe.

    For apps like Safari, mail, itunes, iphoto, and the like; stuff that opens in one bounce, you will not notice a speed difference. It will be too small to notice. For programs that take a long time, Photoshop and such, it'll maybe maybe be a second faster. This is just my estimation, of course. But I wouldn't spend the money for a new SSD if you have a Kingston that is working well.

    It seems that changing my Vertex2 SSD to a Vertex3 on my 2011 Macbook Pro 13" wouldn't make a big difference.

    If it boots in 17 seconds with a V2, and 14-15 seconds with a V3, doesn't seem like a substantial difference....?
