Here are my scores for my OWC Extreme Pro 6g. I am using it in the main bay on my Macbook Pro 2010 2.66ghz. It’s only 3g speeds, but I plan on upgrading my macbook pro in 2012 so I figured I might as well get a future proof ssd. Plus the 5-year warranty from OWC was a big selling point.

Startups are a bit faster, but in the real world I really enjoy the disk reads and writes when transcoding video. The 6g is definitely faster than my OWC Qx2 Raid 5 setup at the expense of space. 240gb vs 4tb. Love my OWC and don’t regret it one bit. Can’t wait to see it sing on a “Ivy Bridge” 2012 Macbook Pro.
