    Looking to buy a new hard drive for my laptop but have no idea what will fit and how universal laptop hard drives are (as in do you need different ones for different models/motherboards)

    Im looking for a Solid State hard drive with at least 64gb just to install windows and my applications on and ill have all my films, music and documents on external drives. I have this laptop :: http://www.ebuyer.com/388470-zoostorm-laptop-7873-9037?utm_source=google&utm_medium=products :: Anyone got anything they can recommend? Cheers!

    SATAIII is backwards compatible with SATAII, it doesnt matter.

    and OCZ SSDs arent renowned for being the most reliable hard drives ever... Samsung drives are good though, Intel as well.

    and Castel wtf are you on about he asked for an SSD :teeth:
