Hello, sorry for my bad English, i'm French. I havé à MacBook pro mid 2009. 17". I'm already tried a Sandisk Extreme SSD, but this drive don't work well. My Negotiated Link is only 1,5 Gb (SATA 1) and not 3 Gbs (SATA 2). But my Link is real 3.0 Gb. (SATA 2) Does anyone here have the same Macbook Mid 2009 17 Does it work with Sata 2 ? (NEGOTIATED LINK 3.0 Gbs) In case of not, wich SSD buy for SATA 2 ? Thanks

This seems to be a well documented MAC issue. Unfortunately you will need to contact Apple but from what I could find there is no fix for the issue.

I contact them, but they don't know where is the problem.
Maybe an incompatibility between Macbook Mid 2009 (Nvidia Chipset SATA) and Sandforce SSD ? (OCZ made a firmware for this problem ?)

Sorry mobile, I've been snooping around here for awhile now...and there hasn't been 1 release of a new firmware...
NO tools or anything to load it in sight either. I read a post about the possibility...but normally any product or release comes WAYYYYYY after the initial talks.
So I don't think there will be a firmware upgrade for you or anyone else. I think it will always have what it was shipped with.

i have the same problem with my Gigabyte M68MT-S2 (AM3+ MB) with nVidia nforce 630a/7025 chipset.
Only Sata 1 spec for Sandisk extrem 120 ssd ...
So i update with the last nVidia SATA drivers = no results.
I update last Sandisk firmware (rev 2.01) = nothing change.
My WD HDD caviar green is faster and OK on SATA 2 spec...
So if Sandisk aren't able to fix it quickly, i return the ssd for it's bad performances

first thsi is a tread about older MAC systems so you should really create your own thread since this is not a MAC issue.
That said your board should have 4 SATA II ports. have you tried other ports? is so what are the results? There is a free benchmark program called ATTO can you download that and post the benchmark results?
