Kingston's HyperX 120 GB SSD looked pretty mouthwatering to me so I had to try it... UPS delivered it at 9 this morning along with an Optibay and I started working on it as soon as I got it out of the box. I didn't have a stupid torx screwdriver so I have to wait tomorrow to take the Superdrive out... Anyways, SSD installed. Lion installed (slowly for some reason). Now I boot up and all I'm getting are random hangs and freezes pretty frequently, and they last up to a minute (yikes, it's really annoying!). I'm guessing this is what it was doing while installing Lion... Spinning beach balls galore whenever I see it's indexing. Even while typing things I'm getting it. I watch Activity Monitor and notice that while it's hanging, there's no read/write activity (which is typically what to expect). When I try to install Xcode it is literally unusable for a good 20 minutes till it's done. I've done all the goodie optimizations for SSDs (turn on TRIM, get rid of hibernate, disable SMS, turn off spin down HDD, etc), no love. I was so frustrated this morning, you should see my email to Kingston. Although to troubleshoot (and make sure it's not the SDD), I installed Windows 7 through Bootcamp. IT'S BLAZING FAST, just a crazy change over what I was experiencing with OS X! No problems at all, no hangs whatsoever. So I guess I point the finger at Lion for now? Or maybe a much needed firmware update from Kingston? I've emailed Kingston this morning but haven't gotten anything back yet, and nobody wants to respond to me on the Apple forums (typical), and so I turn to Macrumors Any discussion is much welcome MacBook Pro 15" 2011 2.0 GHz, Lion and latest (two) updates.
