      Comments about OWC / Other World Computing 240GB Mercury Electra 6G Solid State Drive:

      After tireless searches throughout tech websites & reading reviews all over the place I came across to this SSD OWC which was one of my choices among SSDs between OWC & Samsung.
      My reasons to buy this:

      1-Great Reviews
      2-Made in USA vs. Import
      3-Great Support available from the Manufacture who is located in the US
      4-Durable product & Lightning speed

      I bought 2 for my 2011 i7 17" MacBooks... our boot time has been boosted from 55-110 seconds to less than 7-15 seconds!!!

      Don't think twice... buy these great SSD..
