    you are all aware of the mcp79 chipset bug with sandforce sata 3 controller. It support sata 2 but the negociation speed is only 1.5gbps. Even if it could be faster, its still incredibly faster!

    mbp 2009 5400rpm vs intel 330
    blackmagic write/read on 5400:
    50mbps/50mbps
    on intel 330:
    105mbps /130 mbps

    mavericks installation: 15 minute instead of 25 minutes.
