Hi! I would like to know is the SSD disk 512 GB, INTEL 545s Series, 2.5", SATA III, 3D2, TLC, SSDSC2KW512G8X1 compatible with 24inch iMac (early 2008)?

I would be more inclined to ask Apple this question. Also, do you know if the iMac supports sata 3? If not, then what is the point?

Thanks Doc! I have checked at some Apple dedicated hardware pages. They suggest: 500GB Mercury Electra 3G SSD Specifications:

Specifications

Controller

4-Ch

NAND

Tier 1 3D NAND

Cache: 3D SLC NAND

Storage: 3D TLC NAND

Form Factor

Standard 7mm 2.5"

Interface

SATA 3Gb/s & 1.5Gb/s supported, 

SATA 3.1 Compliant

Capacity 1

500GB useable capacity

SMART Attributes

Standard 2

Native Command Queuing

up to 32 commands

RoHS Compliant

Yes

Format

Unformatted 

Physical

7mm (0.276″)

Width (max)

70.06mm (2.758″)

Length (max)

100.12mm (3.941″)

Weight

77 grams +/- 2 grams

0.170 lbs +/- 2.71 oz

 

Reliability

TRIM Support

OS Dependent

 

Performance

Sequential Read (Compressible Data)

274MB/s

260MB/s

 

Sequential Read (Incompressible Data)

270MB/s

 

Sequential Write (Incompressible Data)

250MB/s

 

Random 4K Read

Up to 90,000 IOPS

Random 4K Write

Up to 60,000 IOPS

 

Power

Active

2.1W

Idle 

0.1W

 

Environmental (Operating)

Temperature (°F)

32°F to 158°F

So, I could buy this SSD, but Intel has much better performances. This is why I ask the question. But it is very hard to get answer...
