Thanks, Great performance boost

Working great in my old Macbook 2.2 core 2 duo which was crawling with an 12 year old fragmented 160GB hard disk.
Cloned the new drive with Mac disk utilities and a housing. Easy to fit with a small philips and small Torx screwdriver following online guides. Massive speed boost in performance, perhaps 3-400% quicker now.

Good but not good for iMac
October 10th 2016 Verified user
So far the performance is good. Only problem is it's what's recommended for an iMac. Removing a 3.5 and replacing it with a 2.5 is an issue when I does not fit or mount inside. You will have to fabricate a mount to install it. This does effect the airflow a bit and can cause the fans to run harder.
