    Works fine on my mid-2009 13″ Unibody Macbook Pro, July 21, 2012

    I installed this as my main system drive on my Macbook Pro. It works fine out-of-the-box and everything loads much faster. A complete restart takes under a minute easily, and that’s with all kinds of peripherals attached (hard drives, monitors, printers, etc). I can launch Safari in seconds and everything is just much snappier. I moved all of my larger media files (music, photos, videos) to a 2nd hard disc that now lives in the superdrive bay.

    There is one big caveat: if you install this on a decent older computer, you’ll have a really hard time justifying a new computer. I was in the market for one of those fancy new Macbook Pros w/ Retina display, but after installing this I’m good to go for a couple more years at least. Granted, I’m no power-user by any stretch of the imagination.

    I will update this review after the SSD gets some hours on it. If you see no updates, you can assume everything is peachy.

    This review is from: SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PC128B/WW (Personal Computers)

    I have got to say. This little ssd is a breast. There are others that may be faster, but for the money and value in my opinion it does not get any better. It is especially easy to install the firmware and Trim support for Windows 7. This keep your ssd running in tip top shape, and for those of who like speed consider this an option. I have had other ssd’s such as OCZ, Kingston, and Corsair where you normally have to go into the bios to perform firmware upgrades. This process is tedious and quite annoying. In other cases, tuning your computer for trim is also a hassle. Samsung has streamlined this process and made it simple.

    It took me some days to think about buying a SSD. I read a lot of review, comments and decided to go with Samsung 830 series.
    The first impression is it is light and slim. It’s slimmer than normal 2.5 inch HDD. The process to upgrade is pretty straight forward. Here are the steps that I did:

    1. Connect the SSD to MBP via usb cable then create an ext2 partition.
    2. Use Carbon Copy Cloner to copy the entire Mac partition to the SSD.
    3. I also have a bootcamp partition that running windows 7, so I use WinClone to create an image for bootcamp partition.
    4. Turn off and replace the hard disk. Turn on and It only takes about 15s to boot up.
    5. Everything work fine except the TRIM is not supported (TRIM is only supported for Apple SSD), so search google for how to enable the TRIM feature for Mac OS X. It brings you about 10% to 15% performance.
    6. Create a windows partition (FAT) and use WinClone again to copy the bootcamp partition from the image to disk.
    7. Enjoy the speed.
