    It costs $130.....I installed it myself pretty quickly.

    Takes About 28 seconds to boot and have PS CS5, Ventrillo, Activity Monitor, System Prefs, Mail and Safari Open and Good to Go.

    In terms of performance compared to normal SSD's, and in terms of price, we are looking at 80%-100% of SSD performance, at such a low price, it's almost free.

    How is noise and vibration? I'm afraid of that especially having had an SSD for awhile.

    Honestly, I literally cannot tell the difference from my 5400.
    There is nothing different, except the insane speed.

    I'd be curious to learn if the speed increase you are seeing with your MBP Unibody would be comparable with my early 2008 MBP. Your FSB is double that of mine. The processors are largely comparable...
    NVM - I saw the i5. Mine is good old c2d
