My name is Jitendra and I live in Bangalore, India. I'm using Dell XPS L502X laptop from last 2 years and I'm very happy with it. You can see configurtion of my laptop here http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2856376
My laptop HDD is showing bad sectors so I decided to buy a new HDD and I thought it would be good to add a new SSD to my laptop. I have three questions.
1. Yes, as long as it's a 2.5" drive (not mini-PCI mSATA).
2. SATA 6G.
3. No. The system supports only one internal drive. You CAN mount the existing hard drive in a third-party adapter in place of the DVD drive for storage only (you can't boot the system from the drive mounted this way). Even a 128G drive is small for long-term use as a Windows boot drive.
4. A 2.5" SSD will work fine.
When it comes to SSDs, there are tiers of manufacturers - Intel and Samsung are first-tier -- they have solid reputations. Other manufacturers comprise the second and lower tiers - with varying reputations.
Seagate has recently released a line of true SSDs that have also been well received.
Thanks for quick reply.
1. How did you say yes? any link or proof? Want to be ensure before to buy.
2. How did you know that it support 6G? any spec sheet? Did you check my laptop config valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php
3. Ok then I will buy bigger SSD and will replace with my existing HDD
5. Thanks for info.
Which SSd did you choose and was the installation of your SSD successful? I have the same laptop as you and I am having issues with my HDD after two years as well.
I have the same question, please reply.
And also another; if i put the ssd in a caddy and replace it with DVDRW doas it work? if yes, as an mount drive or internal that i can install windows on it?
Tanx in advane.
