This review is from: SanDisk Ultra SDSSDH-120G-G25 2.5" 120GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: nice and snappy, 20 second boot time for windows 7 (plus 20 seconds for the bios to boot, so I didn't count that)
Cons: none. I've had trouble with other SSD's and this one is running pretty solid so far.
Other Thoughts: A good bet if you're stuck with the older SATA2 format like me. Just be aware that there are faster drives out there if your board is SATA3 enabled.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech MDVIHDMIMF Mini DVI to HDMI Video Cable Adapter for Macbooks and iMacs
Pros: does the trick, works just fine. Free shipping, not bad.
Cons: A bit of a snug fit on the mdvi side. not a big deal though.
Other Thoughts: Let me just say that if your only complaint about the product is that you BOUGHT THE WRONG ONE then don't give the product a bad review, it's your own fault you poor dummy. From the average buyer review you'd think these guys had shipped you a box full of snakes and a middle finger.
I almost bought the mdp adapter but I noticed that the pins didn't look right, did a little more research and found out that macbooks pre-2007 used mdvi outputs. I went to an apple store and asked for one, the guy handed me an mdp connector and I had to explain to him what I wanted, he said they don't sell them anymore. Good folks, Apple (eyeroll).
So anyway, I bought this connector for my girlfriend's early 2007 macbook and it does the job just fine. If you have an older macbook (spring 2007 or earlier), then this is what you want.
This review is from: OCZ Petrol PTL1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: it is what it says it is. Ran nice and fast for about a week.
Cons: Put it in as the primary drive on a computer I built for my parents. A week into ownership it started unmounting at random times and hiccuping during startup, a few days later it was completely cooked. Bios can't even see it. I have another OCZ drive in my desktop that doesn't have this problem.
If OCZ resolves the issue I'll bring up the rating, but for now it's one star because I have a non-working drive.
