    Anyone hooked up this high performance SSD onto any MBP? Would love to hear feedback if it'll work on a mid-2010 or late 2011 13-inch. :D

    The drive was very recently released, I've never even heard of it. Is it even being sold anywhere yet?

    Interesting. The 840 Pro is actually $20 less right now. If I were in the market I'd probably go with the Samsung even though it's a pain to update the firmware via OSX.

    +1, just read the Anandtech review on the Vector and though it's an impressive feat for the company it still falls below the 840 Pro. Seeing as it is cheaper, i would go with the Samsung.

    I read somewhere that samsung may be releasing a mac version of SSD magician which would make life a lot easier on that front

    I agree. Samsung generally has had a better track record in terms of validation. OCZ currently is in a state of corporate flux; while I'm not implying that it is going to cease being a company anytime soon it has yet to prove itself as more than a budget memory company trying to play with the big boys (Intel and Samsung).

    I am a bit wary with Samsung. I dislike the idea of rewarding bad behavior.

    But you guys have a point about OCZ being able to honor the 5 year warranty the drive being available in the last 30 days.
