    I have bought Intel 520 series and negotiated speed link is 1.5Gbps no matter what I do.

    Are there any that work? Samsung 840 Pro?

    Yep, sorry, never saw your thread :x.

    I've so far had the following SSDs in my Late 08 Unibody Macbook, results.

    Corsair Force 3 120GB ------ 1.5Gbps
    Samsung 840 120GB ------ 3.0Gbps
    Samsung 840 EVO 250GB <Current> ------ 3.0Gbps

    So I'd guess the 840 Pro would also work just fine, I have never tried one :\

    Cheers :D

    I have a late-2009 Macbook White which has nearly the same specs as your aluminium one. It has a 840 EVO SSD and works fine. I don't see any reason for buying a new laptop after this upgrade. Maybe that's why Apple is soldering everything they can on the logic board so users can't upgrade their machines.

    Put a SSD, Mavericks and 8GB of RAM. See you in 2015 asking if it's worth upgrading :p

    Thanks both. I'm returning the Intel tomorrow and getting a Samsung 840 Pro.

    Ironically I bought the Intel because of the acclaimed reliability, 840 Pro was actually cheaper.

    Whoa! I just bought a refurb Corsair Force F120 off Amazon. It's a SATA2 drive - are you saying you didn't get any more than SATA1 speed out of it?

    Um.

    I had a Corsair Force 3, it's an SATA 3 drive... so I have no idea about the older F120 drive...
