If you want to treat your Mac Pro to some super cool and super fast SSD action, take a look at the Sonnet Transposer. The adapter fits any 2,5″ standard SSD into a 3,5″ hard drive bay. This might do the trick to bring you amazing startup times and programme response at acceptable costs. Transposer is compatible with 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s SATA. The drive tray adapter is $39.95.
With the help of the AJA System Test (direct download) you can determine the write and read speed of your hard drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD), external drive and USB stick. Just so you know where you are in terms of disk performance or if you feel the need to boost the HDD bottle neck. The tool is provided free of charge by AJA Video Systems.
