    Hi everyone,
    I have been using the OWC mercury 200GB SSD for 4 months now and I am experiencing a lot of freezing and lags on my 2010 15" i7 MBP. I tried restoring to original MAC OS Snow Leopard but it still froze. I dont know the exact problem.

    Freezing occurs mostly when I perform major task/ heavy duties on the MacBook Pro, for example, when doing some video calling on Skype, Playing starcraft 2 and some heavy games.

    Anyone having the same issues? Does anyone know any problem solving solutions?

    P.S. I contacted OWC and still waiting for response. I hope they can give me a product replacement if this has to do with hardware failure.

    You should be able to get an RMA and just replace it. My first SSD (Kingston) was having issues and I got it replaced. The second one has been great.
