I have the Pavilion DV6 6C16NR and I want to buy a SSD (OCZ Vertex 4) III SATA 6Gb / s.
I investigated if the laptop supports 6Gb / s.
1. The manual says 3Gb / s.
2. A few days ago i talked on chat with HP technician and he told me that the chipset supports 6Gb / s, then obviously, your laptop supports it.
3. Talk to another technician today and tells me that he talk to the supervisor and the laptop does not support 6Gb / s.
I'm really confused.
The chipset of the laptop if it supports 6Gb / S, if you search the web you will see that Intel says it.
Can you help, supports 6Gb / s or not?.
If not supported, it makes no sense to spend the money it's worth a SSD.

First of all it does make sense to spend the money on an ssd even if your laptop only does 3GB/s. I believe your laptop is capable of SATA-III interface. You can run a system information program like SIW to see for sure whether you have SATA-III:
A SATA-III drive will run fine on a SATA-II interface

Hello, I downloaded the program but do not see where it says 6Gb / s.
I think that all new laptops with Sandy Bridge should support 6Gb / s.
I want to be sure before buying the SSD.
