Will this SATA 3 SSD work with my SATA 2 MacBook?
I'm contemplating buying my first SSD. I want to put in a small (about 60 GB or so) SSD as my main drive and install my current HDD in an disc drive bay by removing my optical drive.
But I can't decide which SSD to get.
I know that my current Macbook from late 2008 is only SATA II (capable of 3 Gbps link speed but the negotiated link-speed is 1.5 Gbps right now) so is there any point in getting the OCZ Vertex 3 (running SATA III, 6Gbps)? Or would the Vertex 2 be fine since I am not able to take advantage of the 6 Gbps interface?
Will I see diminished read/write speeds by installing the Vertex 3 or will it get the 500mb read/write speeds?
I've been reading through multiple forums about people having a problem with the 1.5 Gbps negotiated link speeds. Will my computer suffer from this as well? (My Macbook uses the NVIDIA MCP79 AHCI chipset).
So basically, which SSD should I get to get the most out of the computer and the SSD?
I am hoping to hear your answers :) Greetings from Denmark!
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
