Lenovo G550 HDD SATA I or SATA II ?



I want to change the HDD in my G550 Lenovo laptop and need to know if the internal HDD SATA port  is SATA I type / SATA-150 or if is SATA II type / SATA-300.


Could an SSD be used?



SSD drive.gifThe G550 supports SATA II HDDs although SATA I drives can also be used - the data transfer rate will just be somewhat less.   SSD devices should work - some SSD mechanical designs around the connector area may cause complications with installation / mounting.

Is there any general data on installing/using/etc., on B50 laptops? Most of the stuff I have found is for other models.
