So the package finally arrived today! First thing I noticed is that the SSD drive was about 1/3 as heavy as the regular HD that came with the Macbook Pro. The package from Superbiiz did not contain a box, only a hard drive inside an electrostatic bag but it makes sense since the Micron brand is supposed to be for corporate sales. Impressions so far: - This drive is fast! However, it's also my first SSD so my opinion is very skewed. The MBP booted up within 3 gear spins in 10.6.6. After I upgraded to 10.6.7 it became 8 gear spins. After some tweaks per the Trim Enabler thread and resetting PRAM, it boots up in 2 gear spins. - The SSD negotiates at 6 Gbps, as expected. Trim support is made possible with the Trim Enabler script (found in the Mac Pro discussions). - All 512GB's appears to be recognized. This was unexpected. The least amount of space should be around 505GB's but according to iStat Pro, pretty much all 512GB's are available for use. - I set the computer to sleep in 1 minute and was able to wake it up with the space bar without any issues. - Running VM Ware to boot up Windows 7 seems to load up about the same time though it's probably slightly faster. Shutdown was instant. - OSX shutdown is also pretty instant. - I have noticed some beach ball behaviors when I load up new programs for the first time (e.g. VM Ware, iChat, etc.) Subsequent loads seem to not have any issues so far. - One ODD thing I've noticed which may or may not be SSD related. My deleted files are no longer going to the trashcan. Every file I delete gets a warning that the file will be removed immediately and that it cannot be undone. I'm not sure if there's a setting somewhere that I can switch to flip to the old behavior or if this is a Trim related thing. Either way, a tad bit annoying but I can live with it for now. Edit: I think one of the sudo commands I ran accidentally removed myself as the owner. I was able to fix this by adding my login to the owner of my hard drive. - I don't think my Xbench scores are all that great. But I will give it another shot after a couple of days. Over all, pretty routine and trouble free as far as I'm concerned.
