i am thinking of adding an SSD to my macbook. currently i have a 500GB WD Black drive, and the superdrive, so i am thinking of replacing the superdrive with a bracket and moving the HD there, and adding an SSD to the existing HD slot.
the macbook is SATAII so unfortunately i cannot get the max utility of the new crucial M4 or Intel 5XX series SSDs, as those are SATAIII.
can someone recommend a good SATAII SSD? the Intel 320 SSDs seem to be getting great reviews on newegg. also, some technical questions
- is there a specific controller i should look for?
- how do the recent SSDs fare with r/w operations? i remember reading a while back that SSDs suffer a high failure rate due to multiple read/writes
