    I know I'm fairly new to the forum and have only posted a few times but I just received a promocode form Newegg on the SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD).

    Typically 329.99 but on sale for 299.99 with free shipping when using the following promo code:

    EMCYTZT1302

    I am not affiliated with Newegg, just saw a good deal and thought I'd share.

    Unfortunately no personal experiences but from a brief glance of the reviews on Newegg, it appears to be a fairly good drive. Not sure if there are specific mentions to Macs in there so you might want to dig deeper and find out. Also, checkout the SSD guide in the Macbook Pro forum. Someone there might have some experience with it.

    I have a MacBook Pro which I bought about 8 months ago. How can I go about installing one of these hard drives?

    Thanks

    That's for a 13" but the same applies for both a 15 and 17"

    This is just the installation of the actual drive. What you would want to do is get an enclosure to put the old HD in or a backup of your current drive to be able to transfer the OS and all of your stuff over to the new drive
