Any recommendations as to which ssd to get?

Should I just go with the max capacity I can afford?

I am thinking of replacing the optical drive with an ssd also.

How much space do you use on your current HDD?


Canon 60D, Canon 10-22mm, Sigma 30mm 1.4, Tamron 17-50mm, YN-560 IV Flash (2)

If you're running 10.8.3 or higher, I suggest you make a fusion drive. 240 GB SSD plus your current hard drive. You'll need a drive adapter for the DVD space, such as those from Other World Computing.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Using 350 out of 500 - and that's after deleting a mass of photos......
