    Same one I have installed in mine works great. Make sure you update it to the latest firmware.

    Would you mind pointing me to the guide you used to complete this upgrade? I'm a bit confused about what additional parts are required to get the job done. I thought I was on track, but I just learned that the 2010 and 2011 iMac models require different adapters and cables to add an SSD.

    Thanks!

    http://www.ifixit.com/ has a lot of upgrade guides. I'm not sure about your specific model, but you could search there.

    Are you installing as the only drive or with a HDD also?

    ----------

    I need to replace my HDD and hope to add an Sdd also in the process. Let me know what you end up getting. I think there is some kit. Also, are there any thermal sensor considerations we need to be aware of with the Sdd in a mid-2010 27" i7?

    I had this installed with a 2TB HDD. It works perfect and for video encoding it is a big step up.
