    240GB Mercury Electra 6G 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Dream for an Old Laptop!! Dropped this in the Optical Bay of a 2009 MacBookPro (along with a new battery) to breath a little more life in to a slow old laptop. This was a dream for the old machine!! Dropped it in the Optical Bay since that was no longer needed. Left the original 500GB in and use it as a second/storage drive. System now runs off this SSD and compared to what it used to be, absolutely screams in speed compared to the old hard drive. Was as quick fast install and works like a charm, definitely gave this 2009 laptop another 2-3 years of life as a basic internet/email/documents machine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Mac fountain of youth This is the 2nd OWC SSD I've installed to rejuvenate an ancient and doddering Mac, this one on a 2010 Macbook Pro. (The first was on a 2006 Macbook.) In both cases, installation was straightforward, and both times, the speed bump in operation was remarkable. For example, boot times went from close to a minute to under 30 seconds, and programs felt peppier and more responsive with the OWC SSD in place. I've been using OWC products for years, and they're always top notchthis SSD is no exceptionand if your computer has some years on it, here's a veritable fountain of youth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 SSD in the Market + its MADE IN USA! 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..
