Inspiron 3650, SATA Drive compatibility

Jump to solution

Hello. I'm looking into getting a secondary SATA drive. My main concern is that there may be some sort of compatibility issue from choosing any drive I find (outside of physical size). Does it matter what kind of drive I get? (I know there's a bottleneck on SSD's using SATA) Can I just use any new drive I find from like WD or Samsung?

Core i5 6400

Do you also know where I can acquire a 2.5'' drive bay mount for my computer, @U2CAMEB4ME? I've tried checking the Dell website but could not find any.
