You have the same chance of the drive being damaged in a SATA III slot, as you would on the SATA II slot... It will make no difference to the SSD, outside of performance.
Cool. Thanks again
You asked about Intel's 510 series ssd's which are SATA III (6 Gb/s) capable. Intel issued a press release today. The new ssd's should be released tomorrow. I know there will be at least 3 technical reviews published tomorrow or within a few days. The reviews should make for some interesting reading.
Yeah, I had been looking forward to that press release
I'll keep a look out for those reviews for sure.
