Gives new lease of life to ageing Macbook
Reviewed by . Review Posted 07/09/2013

Bought this for my wife's 2006 Macbook - was getting painfully slow to boot & to launch applications. After first few re-boots now boots up in little more than a third the time it used to and loads frequently used apps in a flash. Makes my 2011 Macbook Pro with 7200 rpm drive look quite slow now! Straightforward to install (tho' Apple's on-line instructions fail to mention you need a Torx screwdriver as well as a Phillips). Arrived promptly and seems a good compromise between cost & performance. Would definitely recommend if cost of true SSDs is an issue.

Excellent disk

I bought two of these to make a striped RAID0 in my new Promise Tech. Pegasus J4 enclosure.

They are very quiet and fast - I am getting speeds up to 570mbit read and 350mbit write. Easily matching my SSD in the same enclosure but a fraction of the cost.

These drives are well worth considering if you want big, fast "scratch" storage.

item is good, but just be aware that it is an o.e.m. item. Don't think this is stated in its title. So in the box you receive the hard drive and......nothing else. You will need a sata cable, power cable and software to install a new o/s. If you just wish to make a clone of your hard drive use seagates diskwizard software to clone your original hard drive. free to download from their website.
