Best SSD for Mid 2007 iMac
So I have a Mid 2007 iMac C2D 2.4 Ghz w/ 6G of Ram, and I was thinking of doing really the last thing I can do to it (besides Mountain Lion) which is install a SSD. I figured with what I do I can drag the system out for at least another couple years if not longer if I do this seeing as I have a 1 TB Firewire 800 drive for media anyway.
For myself, I just really want the fastest and best drive that my Mac can take at the best price. I also know that you have to factor in the bracket and the tools to remove the screen (which I'm not pumped up about doing but will since it's so old at this point anyway). I was looking at this drive:
but read to where it wouldn't recognize SATA II speeds on some Macs.
My question is has anyone recently put an SSD in this model iMac? How well does it work?

I just finished installing an ssd in the same iMac, it went well, not that bad of a job. I must say it is much snappier, applications open instantly and boot time is about 25 seconds from pressing the button to desktop. I used a similar ssd

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I think those are basically the same drive except yours is SATA III (which is backwards compatable).
Would you happen to know if you can get SATA II speeds out of that drive? If so, I may go ahead and get it since it already comes with the desktop bracket.
