Bought this on NewEgg, was about $280 with tax and overnight shipping, but it came with a $30 Mail in Rebate. A few things first about NewEgg: -Place your order before noon or it won't ship out until the next day -They ship these drives from New Jersey, which shocked the hell out of me given that New Egg is a California company. Maybe that's where OCZ is located? It's a good thing I went for the overnight shipping! -They ship it in a full size computer parts-type box (big enough for a CD rom drive or a power supply)... Seriously guys, the thing is like smaller then a pack of cigarettes and you need to ship it in a giant box? Anyway, onto installation in my 2011 15" 2.0Ghz i7 MBP, I removed the 5400 RPM factory drive and installed it in the hard drive bay (will eventually install the old 5400 in the optical bay)... -I didn't know that I needed a Mac formatted hard drive to use Time Machine. Because all my drives were FAT or NTFS to retain compatibility with my PC at work, I ended up having to run down to Fry's and buy an external drive dedicated to time machine. I went with a Iomega 500 gig Firewire 800 drive, and it backed my entire system up in 1.5 hours, and restored in about 45 minutes. -Install of the SSD is easy... Lots of videos on Youtube already showing it -Only thing I deviated from the plan, I removed the tab from the old hard drive and stuck it on the SSD so it would be easy to pull out if I ever want to swap the drive out again -Fresh Reinstalled OSX -Restored from Time Machine backup (could not restore iphoto library too big to fit on my 128 gig SSD LOL) All around awesome... Computer boots up in 25 seconds... I can open like 30 programs at once and they open almost instantly... Itunes only takes 4 seconds to convert a track from MP3 to AAC or AAC to MP3.. Haven't tried too much other stuff yet. -Geekbench score... WOAH NELLY. 8875 -Xbench Disk test 352.89: -AJA System Test: -128 MB: 392/375 (Read/Write) -2GB: 388/372 (Read/Write) Not sure how these numbers stack up to others who have installed a SATA III 6gbps drive in their 2011 Macbook Pro.. Would love to see your numbers.
