    The Crucial MX200 500gb SSD (plus enclosure) I ordered is now on it's way from Amazon. I think this will be my last upgrade for my mid 2010 MBP before I get a new one next year.

    I just upgraded mine yesterday :)

    15 early 2011 i7

    I'm currently using sandisk ultra II 240gb

    on the box it says 550 write and 500 read speeds but Im only getting

    213 write and 500 read

    performance wise, its great, just a little concerned if I did something wrong

    btw, boot time is now just 10 seconds and waking up from sleep is just like pressing the lock/unlock button on an iPad :)

    Good day! Anybody tried using the Samsung T1 Portable SSD drive as an external boot drive for their Macs? Am thinking of using this as a permanent startup drive for my iMac.

    Looks like 3rd party upgrade kits are still not available for the Late 2013 to mid 2014 MBP Retina models. There are some SSD's being sold in ebay but these are mostly used or refubished.

    I upgraded my MBP 15" Retina Display (Mid-2012) SSD from 768GB to 960GB. I got the Transcend JetDrive 725 locally at Powermac (Aura). There's a stock as well at the Trinoma branch. What's great is that it has an aluminum USB 3.0 enclosure and I can use my old drive as a USB drive.

    Got the BX100. And got surprised that I don't know if it is on or not with my SATA external enclosure since there are no moving parts. :) Got used to the swirling of the HD drives.
    Another surprise El Capitan detected it is unformatted and Had to do it by disk utility.
    Was surprised it is not formatted for windows.
    Are all SSD unformatted straight from the box?
