    Dear all,

    I just found some bad blocks on my hitachi hard disk drive.

    I wanna replace it. I have never been satisfied with this hard disk.

    As far as I know my Macbook Pro is SATA I.

    Can you recommend me some SSD drives 64 or 128gb.


    Macbook Pro 15" Early 2008.


    Thank You

    If you're on a budget, consider the Kingston SSDNow V100 64/128Gb.

    Yes, it's compatible, and you will still enjoy the Kingston's speed.

    I regret getting only 32Gb (in the summer), so I recommend the highest capacity that you can afford --go for the 128Gb.

    Yeah, the Kingstons are good systems. Some of the V series are made by Intel and some of them are made by someone else who I can't remember. Both of the companies they use though make great drives.

    Intel should be releasing drives that are less expensive in the near future, but if SMART is showing issues, you are rather likely to have total disk failure (based on Google's study of SMART).

    I would go for a 120GB drive if prices allow, as most users find it to be the best blend of value and size.

    Some of the popular models here are: Intel X-25, Crucial 300 Series, OWC Mercury Extreme Pro, Kingston V, and a bunch of others which I don't remember
