I thought this was a pretty decent price for a well known brand 3D NAND SSD. I believe they are price matching eBuyer.

Specs:
Green 3D NAND SSD 240GB. 2.5” SATA 6GB/s / SLC / 545 MB/s read, 465 MB/s write / 68K IOPS / 1.0Mh MTBF

I really hope so. I’d love some super fast Samsung SSD’s or M.2 drives!

How does the "Green" apply to a SSD? Really much diff in power use, cool running, meiocre performance?
Is it compatible with MacBook, can I used it as an internal drive for MacBook Air?

Only announced last week but I would think within the next month or two.
I have a curupt normal HD in my inspiron which I bought new from Dell about 2 years ago. If I bought this how would I go about replacing the windows copy I have? Thank you

You could use EaseUS or similar HDD clone software.
Been trying this drive in a few set-ups since I got one for sub 40 lately. The advertised specs are VERY optimistic. In reality, you'll be lucky to get much more than 350 read and 280 writes on it. True, it will PEAK at the advertised speeds, but only in lab conditions. For the same money, you can get, say a Kingston Drive which performs much faster, as will the Toshiba OCZ's. You might say that for the money it's okay, but if you bear in mind that a 3tb Toshiba spinner will go close to 200mb read and writes these days, then the real value of it becomes a bit clearer. I have tried in MacBook, couple of PPC's and via a USB 3.0 hub, so quite a range. It still is outrageous value at under forty quid, but it is left well behind on benchmarks, either black magic or various pc apps....

For the Mac did you enable TRIM? That’s caught me out a few times when installing SSDs?
