My questions are these.
SATA III is backward compatible with SATA II, this I know, what I am wondering is, have they made an attachment so I can get the entire SATA III speed out of a SATA II connection yet?
I read somewhere this was coming soon so I haven't bought the SSD yet. On my HP4420s Probook model XT940UT #ABA specs page=http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jspobjectID=c02052904&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=101&prodSeriesId=4145435&prodTypeId=321957
I am able to put a second hard drive where my optical ROM drive is. This optical drive has has a SATA connection and I planned on moving the OEM 320GB 7200RPM HDD over to that spot with a HDD caddy for 15$ when I buy my new SSD. I can back up my entire SSD with the OEM HDD and have tons of space to save, yet be able to run my entire operating system off the SSD.
Does anyone who has knowledge on SSD's recommend a certain 120gb SSD or 60gb SSD?
Money is an issue so the cheaper the better, but no junk will be bought obviously. I just figured you guys would have way more knowledge on this and I always turn to your guys before making a purchase. I already have an External Optical Drive caddy for the DVD ROM when I take it out. I use it maybe 3 times a year so not having it inside the laptop won't be a problem. I will be much happier having an extra HDD and lightning speed with the SSD. I just want to get the fastest SSD for my $ with my SATA II connection. I was looking at SATA II SSD's only because I didn't know until about an hour ago they were backward compatible. SATA II SSD's are way more expensive for some reason and there isn't much to choose from. This is why I asked about the adapter because I'm sure there is even more I don't know about.
I would appreciate some great feedback and some SSD models to choose from would also be cool. Whatever you guys think is best is always the way I go!! Enjoy your weekend everyone!! BTW, I use the diff colors for those who don't want to read the entire thing!
