Hi all I upgraded my stock HDD today to the 240GB Vertex 2 SSD, which uses the SandForce controller. Ive yet to update the SSD to the latest firmware - as it can only be done through Windows!! Nevertheless, pretty happy with how much quicker the applications start up..... Speed test times (in seconds): Boot Up - HDD - 28.5 Boot Up - SSD - 21.7 Opening PhotoShop CS4 - HDD - 11.1 Opening PhotoShop CS4 - SSD - 3.4 Opening Word 2008 - HDD - 9.1 Opening Word 2008 - SSD - 2.4 Heres a video guide showing the unboxing, install process, and basic testing..... YouTube - MacBook Pro 240GB Vertex 2 SSD Unbox, Upgrade & Testing Not sure if updating the firmware would increase the performance much more, but Im hoping Apple bring an update along with better support for SSDs. This Vertex 2 SSD runs even faster with Windows 7 apparently! Bedsides the firmware, and although Im pretty happy with the results so far, anything else I could try to tweak performance? EDIT: UPDATE!!! After a couple of reboots, my SSD performance has INCREASED!! Ive shaved another almost 5 secs off of my boot time. Im not sure how this has happened? Maybe the drive needed to settle in?? My new boot time is now 16.9 secs!!! Ive created a new update video here..... YouTube - MacBook Pro 240GB Vertex 2 SSD - Part 2 - Performance Increase! Very happy with the performance now. I also read someone else had a sudden speed increase after a little usage. Not sure why this happens, but Im happy!!
