Excellent SSD Upgrade for iMac (C2D, 2009/2010 model)
November 14th 2011 Verified user
The upgrade is immediately noticeable. It's snappy to boot/shutdown, for launching apps, loading web-pages - all tasks that the standard HDD had become painfully sluggish with. My only gripe is with the enclosed 3.5" caddy adapter, for fitting the drive to a desktop. The caddy is short (about the length of the 2.5" drive, so does not easily fit the iMac and this requires a little creativity for stable fixing. Also, the thread on the caddy does not fit the screws that had fixed to the standard 3.5" HDD. There are supplied screws, which work for many SSD upgrades, but the iMac has an odd requirement for specially prepared standard thread modified screws that are not fixed and instead rest in a slotted space. These special standard threat modified screws could not be used on the caddy.

Amazing device, I didn't expected such a great performance from this little box. I had only a minor issue after I've installed the os on it, it stopped to be detected by bios. I don't know exactly why, but after a few reboots it worked fine. That's why I gave 4 stars from 5. Also I ordered the second one I'm going to build a software raid on Linux with them ;-)

I got the 60GB Vertex2 to go with an XP to Win 7 (HomePrem) upgrade on my ASUS netbook.
Arrived promptly, Easy install, and it is Quick to boot. Just what I wanted.

Ordered this disk on monday the 22nd of November had it tuesday morning at 9:45am.

Installed it in the afternoon man this disk is incredibly fast performance is savage no issues with the disk so far.
I don't think I will be going back to regular disks again apart from in my windows homeserver, if you have spent a fortune on your setup one of these disks will complement the rest of your hardware.

Windows Experience Index rates the disk 7.6, HDDtune quick test getting over 240MBps read and write.

Also it comes with a small caddy do you can mount it in a regular 3.5" bay.
Great service as usual guys and great shipping.
Cheers

OMG OCZ FTW!
November 7th 2010 Verified user
Wow, this is the 2nd OCZ SSD i've owned, the first being a lowly 30gb Core V2 SSD. This thing is lighting fast, even in my Compaq CQ61-110SA laptop. I panicked initially, as I'd updated the firmware after installing Windows on it, which led to a BSOD. Much white face as the drive wasn't subsequently found. A quick check on the OCZ forum assured me that leaving it powered off for a few minutes would do the trick. It did, and i'm delighted.
The SSD came in a smart pack, with a 2.5" -3.5" adapter for PC cases,and Screws.
I can honestly say, if you're in two minds about this drive, then just go for it. It's unashamedly quick, and quite simply the best upgrade I've made. The only problem was deciding whether to install it in my HTPC or the Laptop :D Thanks again MemoryC, for some more flawless service.

oh, and to avoid similar Flashing stress, check the Firmware version BEFORE you flash, unlike me. I have no idea if it shipped with version 1.23 or not.So my episode may have been avoidable.

Simply Stunning !

25 years of IT and I have never seen a single upgrade make such a difference. There are some tricks to making an SSD work better, so do your research for best effect. My only regret is that this machine was built for my mother!

Easy install and works well.
