Haven't posted out here in some time, but I've not had to buy a HD in yrs - and I'm only looking now to accommodate this _old laptop w/ a new HD_. I just saw a 1GB SSD for $145 CAD. LOL. I couldn't stop laughing, and just wondered when the prices hit the floor like that.
I have a a Crucial MX500 which I'm looking to replace only for space reasons. Anyone have experience w/ the WD Blue SSDs? I'm not looking for any kind of mind blowing performance, it's really there just to store music and going into an older MacBook (08?)
Would not matter how fast the SSD you buy is, performance will be limited by the speed of the SATA connection. Can't recall if 2008 was SATA 1 or SATA 2. For sure it is not SATA 3.
WD should support TRIM. Your only other concern is thickness. I believe anything up to 9mm should be OK, but will let those more knowledgeable chime in on that.

Thx gents. Ya. I recall all the SATA convos from prior in the days - and how important it was the check all the stats, and of course the connection will be the limiting reagent in chemistry speak. Pretty sure this old lap is SATA II. Just need to figure out what OS i'll be capped to now. I think I have the MacBook 5.1, but I'll have to confirm.
