Thinking about adding another drive to the Macbook Pro 13" 2009 optical drive space. Is this a good choice? I need 240GB, and I know MacBook is SATA2, but now seems like SATA 3 and SATA 2 SSD are similar priced.

I like this over Vertex 3 is the price. ($100 cheaper). But are OCZ SSD reliable? I have read so many issues on this forum and other forums.

Any other better choice?

Thank you!

The bigger issue is that if your SATA2 controller is nVidia like mine was, I can virtually guarantee that the drive with lock down to SATA1. I know Vertex 2 and Vertex Plus will sync to full SATA2 on them. The SATA1 issue on nVidia SATA2 affects every SF SATA3 drive I have seen, and I've tested a lot ;-)

The M4 uses a different controller (Marvell) so it's more likely to work, but I haven't tested that particular drive in that combo. You'd be best to check with other Mac users or on Mac forums to see if they sync at full speed. The Vertex 3 is basically the same drive as the Agility 3 with sync flash instead of async, and should be locked down to SATA1 as well. I had no reliability issues, but drives that sync at full speed will outperform it.
