I have a Mid-2010 MBP with a SATA I connection at 1.5 Gb/s. I'm looking to get just a simple SSD that could increase application loading, deliver faster read/write times and decrease boot-up times. I see most SSDs have SATA III, and I know that the SATA III SSDs tend to be a little bit more "flakey" with reliability and performance, but they are also the cheapest. My question is: Are all SATA III drives backwards compatible with SATA I? I've seen specs of SATA III drives that say "SATA III: Backwards compatible with SATA II", but none that say with SATA I. Also, while we're at it, I know that there's a sticky at the top of this page about SSD buying tips and info, but any slight suggestions on what SSDs are the best would be of great benefit. I also have a Late-2012 Mac Mini that came with a 5400rpm 1 TB drive. It has two drive bays, and so I have room to put an SSD in there and install an OS on it - it has a SATA II connector, so if anyone has any ideas about that, also, great. Thanks!
