              Was able successfully clone Windows from original hard-disk and replace it with this OWC SSD on my new laptop. Time will show how long it will last - but having OWC SSDs on my MacPro2008 and MacPro2010: "Bravo OWC!"

                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..
