Works Great--2012 Macbook Pro 10/05/2012
Big speed upgrade for all apps, good price when on sale, big capacity, supports TRIM, reliable so far
Put the drive in a USB enclosure first to format it and make sure it was not DOA. Then installed it and did an internet recovery of OS 10.8, then used Disk Utility to do a block restore from my old boot disk (now in the USB enclosure). All seems great. I ran the Chameleon TRIM utility afterwards. Not all SSD's support TRIM, but the OCZ 4 is one that does.
All of my former apps are now really fast--at least 5x faster. Photoshop/Bridge and MS Office 2011 are all very zippy (Office for Mac is a real dog when it comes to disk access, so the large SSD really helps it a lot.) Even games (eg Doom 3, Bioshock, etc..) load up immediately.
This drive is about 30% slower than some top end units (like the Vertex family), but it was a lot less expensive, and as far as I'm concerned it has erased the bottleneck that was my HDD.
