    Hi qdungeng

    Not sure that it really matters which SSD you use, all should work. Now your storage interface, if I read specs properly, is only SATA 2.0, so you won't be able to take advantage of an ultra premium drive with very high specs. You can go for space rather than blinding r/w specs.

    Before buying I would see how difficult it is to replace. Some HDD's are buried inside. I would also quickly check connections. Most SSD's today are very slim in terms of height.

    The computer is shown as having a SATA II interface. The actual hard drive currently installed might be a SATA III capable HDD, but the computer side of the interface is SATA II. Therefore, any SSD you put in it is going to be limited by the computer side SATA II, so I wouldn't spend a whole lot of extra money on a super high speed SSD that is going to be connected to a SATA II port.

    Wwhy original of HDD is HITACHI 7K750-500 ? "The new 2.5“ Travelstar 7K750 model features 16 MB of cache, a 3 Gb/s SATA interface".
