I have a 2008 iMac 2.8 C2D that I hit the final possible upgrade on- picked up a Intel 330 120GB SSD for $90 after rebate. Pulled the 1TB drive out and put it in a external FW800 box. Cloned/etc and system seems to run fine, snappy, not quite as dramatic as my first SSD experience was (2010 MBA) but fasts non-the-less. Benchmarks, however, were not where I expected them for a SATAII drive, max through-put was right around what I saw with the 1TB seagate. Checked out the system profile, turns out the SATA port speed is negotiated at SATAI vice SATAII speeds. Drive is SATAIII. Did the forum/internet searches and seems this is not uncommon. Could get a new SSD and install in hopes of connecting at SATAII or just live with it, my guess is that most of the SSD benefit is IOPS/seek time based and that I rarely saturate the SATAI port with normal use... Anyone been in the same boat? Thanks!
