Works Great! just not in my iMac. 03/05/2012
This review is from: Crucial M4 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT064M4SSD2
I jumped in and bought the M4 at just the right time for under $90 as it usually runs over $100.
The SSD already had the latest firmware revision (0009) so it did not need updating.
Not to fault this SSD, but it refused to be recognized by my PPC iMac G5
even in OS X Disk utility. So I installed it in my Windoz 7 desktop and it was immediately recognized and fully operational. I will be setting the M4 up as the Win 7 OS drive and use the disk for file storage. So long iMac!
I knew I was taking a risk when trying the M4 in an old SATA 1 Mac and there has been little help regarding SSD support for legacy Macs in the Crucial and Apple community forums, but I will put it to good use elsewhere.
Hats off to the Egg for great prices and prompt delivery.
