Can't find my new notebook on the manufacturers website, help! Tags: SATA Notebooks Compatibility SSD Laptops Last response: August 12, 2011 6:38 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share aza_101 August 12, 2011 5:15:38 PM Hi I have 2 questions in 1 Just bought a packard bell ns44 i3 2310m and am waiting for delivery so haven't received it yet. I want to upgrade to a SSD as ive told booting and loading programs is faster but I am not sure if I should buy sata, sata 2 or (less likely compatible) sata3. As I can't find the model on PB's website I can't be sure what is compatible, I know sata2 is back compatible but I don't want to buy something more expensive that cannot be utilized. How can I find out what SSD to buy also.... Why does a standard sata 2 hard disk say 3gb/sec and a SSD sata say 250mb/sec? i'm very confused how this works More about : find notebook manufacturers website WR2 a c 575 D Laptop August 12, 2011 6:14:55 PM Hello aza_101 250MB/s = 2.5GB/s HDD=3GB/s is the interface bandwidth of the channel - not the actual performance Actual performance: SSD=Sustained Sequential Read up to 250MB/s Average Latency 0.2 ms HDD= Sustained Sequential Read between 50-120 MB/s Average Latency 4.20 ms aza_101 August 12, 2011 6:31:31 PM UMM.. I though 1000mb = 1gb? In fact I know 1024mb = 1 GB therefore 250mb/s doesn't equal 2.5gb/s 250mb/s infact equals 0.25gb/s but thanks anyway ALSO if my new laptop is only sata 1, what rate of actual performance will I get? I need to know so as not to buy something for extra money that can't be utilized Related resources " Manufacturers Prefer Turion X2 Over Yonah" - Forum I can't reinstall windows 7 on my HP notebook Help ! - Forum Online marketing by IT hardware component manufacturers . - Forum Battery problem on ASUS notebook - Forum HD audio device manufacturers website - Forum Can't find your answer ?
