    Hi Everyone,

    I just want to ask if the Crucial MX100 256gb is compatible and will not have any problems (hanging, errors or getting stuck somewhere) to a Macbook 2010 model?

    Thanks,
    Christian

    I cannot say anything about that SSD as I haven't tried. However, I just wanted to mention that the Macbook 2010 is a lot more compatible with SSD's than the 2009 version (I have both, long story) and even tough I haven't tried the SSD you mention, I'd say that as long as other reviews are good, I wouldn't be worried.

    I have a Crucial M500 on my Mini 2010 (which has nearly the same internals as the MB White 2010) and it works flawlessly. The MX100 is newer, with some improvements, though. The main problem with SSDs with Macbooks is when they don't downgrade to SATA II.

    The MX100 write speeds are markedly poorer than the M500 and especially the M550, particularly the 128 GB unit

    Granted, if you get the 256 GB unit, 330 Mbps is about as fast as the MacBook can go on its SATA port anyway. The other issue is whether the 16nm process flash will be durable or not.
    For example, Samsung's budget TLC chips have a far shorter lifespan than their conventional MLC NAND.

    thanks everyone. I might just end up with a samsung ssd instead.

    Another question though. Which ram (8gb) can you suggest for this macbook?

    Thanks,
    Christian
