I had already previously upgraded my macbook's RAM to the maximum 8GB and was frustrated by slow boot times and slow program launches. So upgrading to SSD was my only option.
When it arrived, I immediately set about formatting it for the MacBook. I then used SuperDuper to clone my nearly full 500GB HDD. I left the process running over night.
By the morning, it was done and I set about replacing the HDD with the SSD. A quick google lookup and I found a video tutorial on CNET that went through it step by step. Very easy.
The moment of truth, I switched on the MacBook for the first time with the new SSD. It was fast! With the old HDD startup was about 80 seconds, from boot, to login screen to desktop icons fully loaded. Now, with the SSD, it's 10 seconds to login screen and about 5 seconds to desktop icons fully loaded!
It's quicker launching programs too. I have MS Office 2016 installed on my MacBook. With the old HDD, it took nearly 2 mins to launch Excel. Now, it's a few seconds. Photos, iMovie, Garage Band, all startup in just a few seconds.
I've also noticed that system and app upgrades are completed much more rapidly, as the downloaded file is written to the disk much more rapidly now.
This hard drive is best suited to casual users who are looking to extend the life of a MacBook/PC for another 5+ years. For the price, you really can't go wrong. It's a lot more competitively priced than the Samsung EVO and will satisfy most users.
By all means, buy an NVMe drive if you feel you need to, but for most people, buying a larger but modern SATA III drive, and maybe spending the extra cash on more RAM, will be a better decision.
