    Don’t be fooled by the transfer speeds; they are using compressed data to get those speeds, because the SandForce controller handles compressed data much more efficiently than uncompressed.

    OS X does not have a habit of compressing data like Windows, so you will not see these speeds unless you go with a Marvell or Samsung controller under OS X

    Do you guys think that it’ll work on a macbook pro 13″ from the end of 2010?

    Looks like people are having problems with this in their 2007-2011 Macbook/Pro with the Nvidia Sata Controller.

    The ‘negotiated link speed’ will be 1.5 Gbps (SATA I) instead of 3 Gbps (SATA II). SanDisk hasn’t released a firmware fix yet, after knowing about it for months.

    …Knowing that, I still ordered the 240gb version. I’m willing to give it a go, but I doubt a quick fix will be coming.

    From product details: Shipping: Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S. :-(

    It is possible to buy this from the UK. Just click the link and change com to co.uk and refresh. Unfortunately it isn’t quite a cheap as it is in the US :(
