Reader Report: OWC Mercury Electra SSD

Reader Conrad R writes after upgrading his older SSD:

The new boot drive (Mercury Electra 3G SSD) I installed sure made a big difference with my MacPro.

It seems to be lightning fast when using Photomatix, Lightroom and Photoshop. I just can't believe how fast it is now. I'll bet it has cut my time in half making an HDR image for my real estate photos. I had be thinking of upgrading it before and now I wish I would have done sooner.

Thanks for all your help. You never cease to amaze me with your knowledge for the MAC etc.

MPG: I use the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G which offers somewhat higher performance, and the OWC Mercury Accelsior PCIe SSD (ultra high performance), but those models carry a cost premium.

The OWC Mercury Electra model is just as fast for most all uses but very cost effective, and all models hold up over time without degrading. Actually the 960GB OWC Mercury Electra is unusually fast, because it is a RAID-0 stripe internally (two internal modules).
