"Fantastic - more space and better speed"5.0 starson by irishman538
Pros: This drive is not noticeably louder than my OEM 250 gig HDD
only marginally more expensive with far better specs (not to mention the solid state hybrid feature)
booting FAR faster and loading my stable programs FAR faster.
Cons: it costs a little more - but you get what you pay for
Summary: I needed more space on my third gen macbook pro. My 250 gig HDD was packed and requiring me to delete files frequently (a problem for a solo practitioner attorney) - and it was running slow. This harddrive did cost a few dollars more than a standard HDD, but it is faster and has a hybrid feature that is shaving an astonishing amount of boot time and program load time.
Also, a five year warrant is a nice fall back since I have time machine to keep my data securely backed up.
In all honesty, if the price were comparable and a 500 gig model were offered, the ONLY reason I would elect pure solid state over this drive is for shock protection. But, prices are anything but comparable and 500 gig is still a dream for a solid state drive. In short, you cannot beat this product for a new harddrive.
Thanks for your submission!
