Hi Stewart!

There is no problem putting an SSD in that machine. I usually prefer the Samsung 850 EVO.

Kind regards

Update

Hi Stew!

Overnight it came to my mind: Depending on your OS you should install TrimEnabler or Chameleon

If you are running the latest version of Yosemite, use the command line and type: sudo trim force enable You don't need any 3rd party software anymore.

That should help extended SSD's lifecycle.

Did you install the OS onto the drive before you put it in?

Guide daag , Joost! Well, what did do , to animate this SSD! Usually, they come unformatted or at least ' Master Boot Record ' . Did u go to 'Disk Utility' & gave it the ' GUID & Mac OS x Extented ( journaled ) format ? If Disk Utility does not see it at all ( internally & externally via USB / Fire Wire ) , give it back, its chuffed!!!

Kind regards from Moffenland
