No. Maybe the Macbook Air is.

 

You shouldn't have any issues. I had to do a firmware update on my OCZ to get it working in OSX, but I think that had more to do with it being new to the market.

That does seem pretty slow.  I'm not sure if it will make a huge difference or not, but you probably also have to force TRIM on.

Sure they sent you a SSD? ;) Whats the make and model number of it?

 

edit: Ah missed the model number you posted before - yeah thats OLD and ****ty SSD..  What did you pay for it?

 

What did your old drive report with the same test?   Your random speeds should be much better than your old HDD..
