post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello again my OCN friends. smile.gif

I have a question about si good idea to buy a refrubished SSD for my laptop, for it's necessary is an Acer Aspire One 4560-SB800.

The SSD on question is an OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SATA II and think buy it on newegg.

For improve general performance and lower boot times.

PD: How i know if my laptop have SATA III controller? On official site don't appear this information.

I would say no on the refurbished when you can get a new one for about $20 more and get a full warranty in case something goes wrong later.

example would be
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227714

Don't know about the SATA II part though.

I don't really see any issue with buying a refurb SSD (from the manufacture) - I would of course use SSD life on it when you get it and if its less than say 80% then I would return it, otherwise you should be good with it for quite a long time.

You can of course get a new one for just a few $$ more, but of course thats always up to you thumb.gif

Don't know about the SATA II part though.

It´s good idea, but since longtime i have this question.

And i buy a SSD SATA III want to use all performance potencial but a SATA II controller can't take advantage, although I know it can work very well in a SATA II feel it is a "waste".

any SSD would give u a boost on the performance
so if u have only SATA2, then don't bother to think about the SATA 3 SSDs
just get one that has the highest $/G deal~~~
