Intel 520 Series Cherryville 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: very fast, very reliable for OS and Applications.

Used as Startup Drive in MacPro 2009 in optical drive bay.
Negotiated speed: 3 Gigabit
Trim enabled with this trick:

Mac OS 10.8.2, using stripe 0 RAIDed Velociraptors for all caching needs

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Posted in response to incorrect post below re: link speed on Macs.
Obviously, your computer needs to be able to negotiate at 3 Gigabit. Many older MacBooks and MacBook Pros can not.
In MacPros, you'd still need a 6Gb PCIe expansion to take advantage of 6Gb speeds.
Use to look up what machine and connections you actually have, if in doubt.
Hope this helps.
