I've seen nothing but problems with consumer installed SSD drives on this machine. There appears to be a Apple installed option for SSD on some machines. The only people that seem to know about this issue, as far as I've found, is OWC and their selling the answer: http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/turnkey/i...

This answer should change in the future when we know more.
