Thread: Choosing a SSD for my MacBook Pro need help.

    Default Choosing a SSD for my MacBook Pro need help.
    Ok here are the links to the final 2 I have to choose from the only difference I can see is price and random Write speed. Let me know which you would choose for your MacBook pro and why thank you. I also decided to go with the OCZ company they have good warranties and good prices per gig and read/write speeds.
    OCZ Onyx 2:

    What do you use your Mac for? Let's answer that first before deciding which drive suits you.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    I think you've done a really good research as you have come up with the only solution (currently) for Mac based computers: SandForce driven SSD
    Mac OS is still (!) not supporting TRIM, what a bumper; so only SandForce technology is appropriate at the moment.

    From Anandtech (it is in almost all his SSD review summaries):
    "I often get questions from Mac users asking what the best SSD is for OS X. Since Apple still won’t support TRIM you need a very resilient drive under OS X. That path leads you to SandForce. Pick up a Corsair Force, OCZ Vertex 2, G.Skill Phoenix or whatever SF drive tickles your fancy if you want the best of the best in your Mac."

    Concerning Onyx 2 and Vertex 2, I will go with the Vertex 2 as the price difference is minimal. The only differences are firmware, cheaper nand and shorter warranty for the Onyx 2.
    You can check the discussion thread on OCZ forum:
