    hi guys,
    I have a Mac Pro early 2009
    and i just buy new ssd - crucial 550 256GB
    According to the manufacturer's instructions
    read / write Around 550
    but when i check it i see i'm around 250
    If anyone knows what could be the cause?
    Can my computer meet these data?
    please advice
    thanks

    Your Mac Pro doesn't support SATA III, so you are limited to SATA II throughput.

    The drive is a SATA III drive which supports the high speed. Your mac only has SATA II ports so can't reach the maximum speed of the drive. To get the higher speed you will have to buy a SATA III card.

    Actually you get what you pay for, the card you want is here:

    http://www.apricorn.com/vel-solox2.html

    From your post, I don't believe English is your first language, so I don't know where you are located. If we knew, we could give you some specific purchasing advice. The card is available at a discount in the USA.
