Apple Now this is interesting. My brand-new MacBook Air 11.6" is at my local Apple retailer because either the SATA part of the logic board or the SSD died mysteriously, and here we have Apple blocking PhotoFast from selling their faster, more spacious replacement drives.

Wrong speed for me.

I don't care what peak throughput the drives can take. By rotating disks are fast enough in continuous writes. Its the disk thrashing that kills it. And you can sort of tweak a drive to offer more peak transfer or better seek performance, So I'm always pretty suspicious when someone mentions two similar drives with only one of the speeds mentioned.

Sorry, I'm afraid I don't know what part of that you need clarification on. I re read it, but it still makes sense to me. Maybe you could add some key phrases in your question that would allow me to expand upon my answer in that direction.
