Intel X25-M SSDSA2MH080G2K5 2.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had this drive for almost two years. It's served me well and has not been problematic in my Macbook Pro. Speed degradation exists, but that's only because OS X does not support TRIM. The drive is noticeably faster every time I wipe (using Intel's utility) every 6 or so months.

Cons: Intel utilities are Windows-only. I'm reaching for complaints here.

Other Thoughts: They've since upgraded the SSD line, but this is still a good product in the early years of consumer SSDs.

Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2M080G2GC 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I installed the drive last August. I use OS X so I have no opportunity to TRIM without a wipe. Even without TRIM I have not noticed much slowdown, but then again I am not a heavy user. Still boots in ~20 seconds. Best upgrade I've ever done.

Cons: It's annoying using machines with mechanical drives now.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a boot drive I'd go with a smaller size. I bought this to dual boot OS X and 7 and I've still got ~40GB empty, which by today's rate is about $100. If you want to be safe, 16GB for OS X and 32GB for 7 would be more than sufficient.

PLEXTOR The Ultimate PVR for the Mac with NTSC Turner PX-TV402U-NA/MAC USB 2.0 Interface
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks pretty nice. Composite inputs work. EyeTV provided is quality software.

Cons: When I received my first unit, 98% of the channels didn't work. They were heavily covered in snow and the sound was completely static. Only two channels worked. I emailed support, they were very helpful, and I RMAed the unit. The second one had the same exact problem, but it was a different unit number. Emailed them back and didn't get a reply. I tried the unit in two locations, and determined that it was the unit's problem.

Other Thoughts: I probably just got two faulty units, but I'm not trusting them again.
