SSD's are great and the prices are coming down. But i worry about the Write speed, i have heard that they are extremely slow when writing to the SSD. And any apps that require constant writes could slow it down to a crawl. I haven't been lucky enough to use a computer that has them, but i know it won't be long before i will.

With MLC SSD's the write speeds suffer, but older SLC ones are fast for sure. The current MLC SSD's however aren't too bad for light use or Linux use, but I wouldn't use one over a 7200rpm drive in a Mac mini, yet at least.

The only disappointed about this SSD upgrade is the fact that I can still hear the fan, even though it spins most of the time at 1500 rpm or 1750 rpm on full load. The fan simply isn't very quiet, and so far I haven't been able to find a fancy silent replacement from a company like Papst or so.

Something to consider for those of you thinking about a SSD upgrade is the size of the SSD. Yes, 16GB is enough for OS X and all or most of your applications (I have 3,2GB of free space left), but you will most likely need an external drive for your data. I use a 1,5TB raid-0 firewire 400 enclosure so I'll survive, but a 32GB SSD would be recommended for apps like VMWare Fushion.


Thanks for the very thorough post.

I was curious about a SSD for noise issues. I guess the main noise problem is the fan and not the hard drive. I have noticed this as well.

Obviously cost is an issue to along with the limited capacity.

Thanks again for sharing your experiences.

What is the power draw? Is it less than the old hard drive?

FYI a review:

Wonder how it rates against the VelociRaptor?

Ah a good question that was answered with real world tests on Tom's Hardware and the answer is that the HDD has less power draw except when under a full load, but since a HDD actually consumes less power when idle that when active and the SDD maintains its power consumption at all times the HDD wins out.
