5 out of 5 eggs Works Great--2012 Macbook Pro 10/05/2012

This review is from: OCZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


Big speed upgrade for all apps, good price when on sale, big capacity, supports TRIM, reliable so far



Other Thoughts:

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.
