It's an ADATA, which is sort of middle of the road, IIRC.

Anony,

Nothing wrong with Adata. I've got one in a machine and it's been dandy.

Would these work OK in our aging mid 2011 iMac? Just doing email and web stuff.

Don't see why not.

Just about any SSD is an improvement over the internal platter drive, even with a USB 2 enclosure. But if at all possible, I'd want in inside the iMac. In general, faster performance, but even more importantly, very tidy.

Agree. Any SSD of any size by any maker will be a huge help.

Even via USB 2. But to see a real benefit -- like RAM said -- internal is the way to go.

Although you may need to install SMC Fan control. Which seems to work OK. Cleaner solution is OWCs temp sensor, but its another $30.
