hello, i'm looking at this SSD for an apple mac mini late 2012, will this be compatible
Chris C.
you wouldnt happen to know what the port mSATA or SATA would be for the mac?
i ran a scan at crucial and it showed me this one is compatible. interface is sata
i was looking at the samsung because of the the great reviews. can you tell me if the one i had selected from samsung is compatible
Chris C.
they are the same size and build
SATA III
great, i believe i will need a converter to install the drive. is that correct?
if so can you suggest one
Chris C.
one moment
ok
Chris C.
sata to usb correct?
i wanted to use this ssd drive as my primary and have 2 hard drives using my existing sata HD as storage
Chris C.
ok
i gotta figure out that SATA converter you need
ok. thanks
Chris C.
well im watching a video
and it looks like the sata connector already on the HDD
so we would need a 2nd SATA correct?
yes
Chris C.
so it looks like you'll have to get a SATA connector off of another site
ok, thanks for all your help i appreciate it.
Chris C.
you're welcome
thanks
