Cheap price


Not compatible with certain nvidia chipsets in the Mid 2009 line of Macbook pros, leading it to behave more slowly than a traditional SATAI disk. Unable to use computer with it installed.

Other Thoughts:

Filing for return and buying a non-sandisk drive that has proven compatible with my nvidia chipset. (MCP7)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear dotLou,

This is Michael from SanDisk support. Please note that the issue that you are facing is due to the Nvidia MCP79 chipset. This SATA chipset does not correctly negotiate the SATA link speed for many SSDs. Using other SSD may also pose a similar situation because the issue lies in the speed negotiation done by MCP79 SATA chipset. A small number of manufacturers have chosen to release a FW that will lock the SSD in SATA 3Gb as a work around. SanDisk has not released an Extreme II SSD FW specific for this Nvidia MCP79 SATA chipset compatibility issue. If there is anything we can assist you with please contact SanDisk support at 1-866-SANDISK or submit a support request at

Thank you,
SanDisk Support
