Lenovo H50-50 SSD compatible?

I want to add an SSD drive to my H50-50 desktop. I read somewhere that Leveno required a proprietary data cable connector and that I would have to order the SSD drive and cable from Leveno. Is that true or can I order any drive I choose? Thanks for any helpful suggestions.

I have an H50-50 desktop to which I was hoping to add an SSD drive. Can I add any drive or do I have to purchase a proprietary SSD drive from Lenovo?

You can purchase an SSD drive from any seller.  It is not a propriety hardware item.  

 

Please see these threads for additional information about a SSD upgrade on a H50 system......
