I upgraded my MacBook Air 2011 (A1370) to a Crucial MX500 SATA SSD with better speeds and would like to give the original APPLE TS128C (128gb) a second life.
I have tried a basic enclosure that does the Apple 6+12 PIN => USB 2/3 conversion but the read speed doesn't go above 50 mb /s.
I figure there are 2 ways to looking at this:
- Either find and use a better USB3 case that does the Apple 6+12 PIN => USB 2/3 conversion with a better chipset, in which case I need recommendations?
- use a Apple 6+12 PIN => SATA 3 conversion board and then use a classic SATA 3 to USB 3 enclosure but I don't know if that will work?
So what do I need to look out for to get good transfer speeds?
