zerox wrote:I'm currently in Asia and found some good deals on SSDs. My newest hardware is from 2008 so I am a complete noob. They don't even sell SATA II any more, and SATA III is cheaper than SATA II stuff back in the UK/Canada where I live. Hope you guys can help with the following:
1) I have a 2.5" external HDD (i.e. there is an enclosure which provides a USB to SATA interface). This is from 2008 so is it likely to be SATA I or II? Can I just pull out the HDD and put the SSD in? I know I won't get the full speed of SATA III, but more worryingly I have read that some SATA III devices won't work with SATA II ports and need a certain jumper to be set. Does this affect SSDs or only SATA III HDDs?
2) I also have a box from 2004 which has a SATA HDD that is connected by 4-pin molex and 7-pin SATA cable. Would the SATA III SSD work with this setup and what else would I need?
3) Intel or OCZ? Also, is the BSOD issue still relevant? I run linux with winXP in a VM, and win2008 r2.
