Can't seem to find any info on this SSD

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
*UPDATE*


Bought the recommended enclosure and installed it today.
It is fast, boot time is 17seconds on my a1342 .

These are the benchmarks, the numbers came out a little higher than expected:

Note that OSX recognizes the drive as a Samsung PM810








_______________________


I just bought a 128gb SSD for about $25.
The guy who sold it to me had it on his laptop and he parted it out cause of a motherboard failure.
(I gotta say, 128GB SSD for $25 is something I couldn't refuse.)

Now here's the deal:
I have no idea of the specs of this drive and I bought it to upgrade my white 2009 a1342 Macbook.
The drive is a 1.8" Samsung microsata 1288gb SSD.
(heres a picture to get a clearer view)


The connection is definitely microsata, I need an adapter for that and 3.3v to power it,
Any enclosure or adapters I should look at?


The current drive on my Macbook feels slow, this are the benchmarks:


What performance should I expect from this SSD?


Help is greatly appreciated

Use this 1.8" to 2.5" micro sata to sata adapter. But you might want to use an adapter that will give you the correct rating of voltage and amperage. There are many other enclosures that will work to convert that 1.8" FF to 2.5" to fit any laptop. Or you could go with putting it into an external enclosure as portable drive.

This forum post leads to this auction of the SSD with the same P/N as yours, so it's the same drive.

Maximum Sequential Read Rate: 90MB/s
Maximum Sequential Write Rate: 70MB/s

So it's pretty poor, don't expect too much or anything close to modern SSD standards.

I would assume as much, especially since it is limited by the SATA 3.0 Gbps

this is an oem drive for lenovo thinkpads from what ebay tells me.
not sure where to get adapters that will fit a 1.8" to 2.5" bay

On the bright side, 90mb/s is double the speed of my current drive.

That, and most likely this SSD will have better access times than your HDD. It is a very good buy, 128GB for $25 is a steal!
