Windows 7: SATA II Speeds Inop?

SATA II Speeds Inop?

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-30 MK3. Myself and many others are trying to figure out why we can't get SATA II speeds. There is nothing in the BIOS that helps, nor the manual. The only thing that the BIOS says in the System Info is SATA-AHCI.
I have tried several different SSD's and they all max out at around 130Gbps. Someone mentioned that it might not support S-II, but I have a very hard time believing that with the computer only being 2 years old.

Does anybody have any suggestions? Heck, even my son's 2 year old Toshiba Netbook is SATA II compatibile! I have not contacted Panasonic yet, was waiting to research some more. In the Intel IRST it shows Sata 1.5GBps, and NCQ as being Active.

Thanks!

It seems from some google searching that these are limited to SATA 1.50Gbps. That's a real bummer;

Oh well, at least you get the biggest benefit from the SSD, very low access times. The sequential throughput speeds look great on paper, but don't make a world of difference in day to day usage.

Yea, it is a bummer! I just emailed Tech Support, they will get back too me in a little bit. I didn't feel like calling them.

It just irks me so much, and I want to know why they decided to throttle them back. The new, current models come with an Intel i-5 540 Sandy Bridge 2nd gen in them and owners are complaining of the same thing. This makes no sense

Thanks!

Yea, I started that thread. You can raise some feathers over there if you post a negative thought sometimes.

Will I still see good speeds using a SATA 3 SSD on a SATA 2 mobo?
I am looking to purchase an SSDD (Newegg.com - Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F90GB3-BK 2.5" 90GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)) and am wondering if I will still see good speeds as my motherboard only has SATA II connections and the drive is SATA III.
