Don't ever by an OCZ SSD for your MacBook! The things just won't work. I'm on a replacement of a broken OCZ 240GB SATA III Vertex 3 and even the replacement doesn't work. Completely unpredictable: the first one would beachball my MacBook to death after jumping through many hoops to get it to work in the first place.

Second one doesn't even get recognized as a disk when installed as internal drive, but works when connected through an external USB interface.

And don't even get me started about the lack of support for OCZ firmware updates for the SSD on the Mac - there's none. You're left with the choice of updating the SSD's firmware using Linux or Windows. Admittedly, I blame myself for this - should have researched the SSD firmware updates before buying...
