Things that you may need include:
1. 2.0 Phillips Screw Driver
2. T6 (star-headed) Screw Driver
3. Harddisk Replacement
Here I’d like to add some more in-detailed information about this upgrade.
The Benchmark shows the major improvement in read and write per second.
I didn’t have the old screenshot for the stock drive (Seagate Momentus) while connected via SATA II inside my machine. If I remember correctly, it was something around Read 85MB/s and Write 95MB/s. Nonetheless, From the test results, I assume that connecting SATA III drives to a SATA II supported mother board gives a better result in performance. Due to the difference in disk spinning speed factor (5400 and 7200 rounds per minutes), this copy of 7200 RPM SATA II drive is still slower than a copy of 5400RPM SATA III drive running at SATA II limit.
Next time, I’ll upload a demonstration VDO about how to replace your Macbook Pro optical drive with the second harddisk, so… Stay tune!
