Overall Review: This is the second time I try the ssd on powerbook g4 titanium dvi. The harddisk originally is 4200rpm and has no pin to indicate whether it is master or slave. without pin on the original HD, I thought it was in slave mode. With SSD in slave mode, it has issue from sleep and detection(cannot get into firewire mode from boot), but once with the pin setting the slave into master mode, it is all good. It appear the default apple HD has some special formware in it, and I did not find any info on putting the Transcend SSD into the powerbook. Notice the system profiler will give unit ID as 0 for the default disk, if you set the SSD in slave mode, it will read unit: 1 instead of 0. Make sure the HD is set in master mode and it should work fine. No awake from sleep trouble, very fast, a 3X increase in xbench HD score.
