I got kind of bored with my SSD drives having the default hard drive icons, and I was having trouble finding a nice set of custom SSD icons by brand name, so I created a simple set of 8 SSD icons for OSX. It's nice to show your fast drives from those slow old-school spinners. Hopefully others might find these useful as well.

Some icon tools to get you started creating your own:

SSD icon Photoshop Template: DOWNLOAD

Hard Drive icon Photoshop Template: DOWNLOAD

Img2icns App (Create OSX icons from image files): LINK
(On a Retina display if this app doesn't work, Get Info and check "Open in Low Resolution".)

Basic Photoshop instructions: LINK

Basic Gimp instructions: LINK
Just had me all nostalgic for the long abandoned software utility called CandyBar by Panic Software. It was a brilliant piece of software that catered for superb-quality icons. I realise now I originally bought it over 10 years ago. No longer works.

So thank you to the OP and everyone else for keeping the interest going! :thumbup:
