Upgrade to Solid State Hard Drive

I have an HP Pavilion dv9009us Notebook PC and want to install a solid state hard drive. How do I determine if a 6 Gb/s hard drive backward compatible to 3 Gb/s, but not to 1.5 Gb/s, will work in this PC?

Re: Upgrade to Solid State Hard Drive



They are industry standard and all backward compatible. One thing I'd like to mention here (and please do not ask me why): last month I replaced 4 HDD's of my laptops with 4 SSD's from 120Gb to 480Gb, same brand (Sandisk Extreme). One laptop gave me a headache, changing interfaces forward/backward did not help and at the end I had to format the SSD using external enclosure before put it back.


Hope this helps.
