    I bought myself a used Mac Pro from a designer company very cheap and I'm very happy with it. But I want to buy an SSD. Which one is the way to go? I have been looking at the Crucial RealSSD C300 2,5" 128GB for a while now and it looks pretty good, but is there a special one I should go for since Macs don't have TRIM-support?

    Thank you so much for the help!

    I just bought this one and I like it a lot. $205 after rebate.

    It's a 3.5" drive, so no adapters are needed. Just screw it to an existing hard drive sled and slide it in place.

    It has a Sandforce controller which generally does the same job as TRIM, without needing TRIM support in the OS. Sandforce seems to be well regarded by most.
