    I had a heck of a time trying to get a couple of different SSDSs to work in my 2011 17", but the Vertex 3 has been rock solid and blazing fast. Highly recommended.

    Vertex 3 has been smooth (no issues) and it's Xtreme :D

    Also, you don't have to worry about using an optibay SSD as they will all work there (no conflicts).

    So, for example, like I have a Vertex 3 in the regular slot negotiating 6gbs, and a decent Sandforce SSD in a cheap Optibay, and have zero issues for months now.

    Note: like i've posted previously, I've gotten a chance now to really compare the Vertex 3 to a few other quality SSD's, and when the Vertex uses the faster buss it is noticeably faster. Now I didn't think this would be the case. I figured that at some point there's not a noticeable difference, but you do see the difference BIG time.

    So, in a way, Apple is dragging it's feet not fully utilizing the faster buss with it's stock drives.
    Fortunately, we can circumvent this :)
