your running at sata ii speeds.

 

My guess is seing the age of the laptop, that the sata port is running at sata ii max, its hard to know the exact amount of sata iii on the chipset and where it was used.

 

Id really not worry about it, it won't make a difference here.

I own Samsung NP300E5X LAPTOP.

Just upgraded from HDD to SSD, but for some reason my SSD is using half the speed its capable of.

 

[ ''A word about SATA compatibility as well: SATA III is required for proper Samsung SSD performance, and if you have a SATA II mainboard then you can expect much slower speeds. '' ]

 

In the Laptop specs it says that it has SATA III.... So why am i getting Half the speed of my SSD?

Maybe it's running SATA2 and the soecs sheet means "SATA3 compatible"? All SATA versions are compatible with each other, only speeds are different.

check crystal disk info.

 

But really I wouldn't worry, sata ii vs sata iii won't make a big peformance difference, its the iops and latency that matter here, and you can still get almost the full iops and latency on sata ii.
