Re: T61 Support SATA II ?

You are right, turning off the feature with battery life saving is hard to justify. One may not run Thinkpad on battery all the time.

If my data is still on cache of harddisk. I expert a full tranfer rate support.

 

I put the same disk to my other Acer notebook. It is noticable faster although both notebook use the same intel chipset and CPU speed.

Re: T61 Support SATA II ?

Erik,

 

Is this a limitation within the BIOS or is it a modified ICH8 ?  As an owner of an X25 SSD I am disappointed with the current Lenovo results and hope for a solution.

Re: T61 Support SATA II ?

Erik,

 

What is the channel to escalate this to an engineer and follow-up if there is something that can be done ?

 

 

Thank you

Re: T61 Support SATA II ?

Sata speed is set by bios per intel's 965GM chipset specs, obviously there is no option to do that as of now through

Lenovo's bios.

 

Erik, I bought intel's x25-e for my T61 for Christmas , which theoretically should have about 200-250 MB/s throughput, all I am getting - 110-125 MB/s

It means, when I bought the laptop and expected per specs to have SATA II operational , I wasted my  money  ?

 

This is obviously has been a mistake by engineering team, I would really like to get my money's worth and have this corrected .


What would be a procedure to do that ? Any way to contact engineering team and put this request in ?

 

I am assuming more and more people are looking to get SSD's this year - seems like a priority and important fix , no ?

Re: T61 Support SATA II ?

Yes, I find I am wasting my money.

Support SATA II and compatible with SATA II is 2 different story.

Lenovo has short change the specification of the Thinkpad.
