I can't seem to find this information anywhere on the forums, only in question format where fellow forum members asked this question without answer. I decided to try my luck and open a brand new topic instead of flooding someone elses' topic with this.
I love this notebook with its specs and performance and even the heat is manageable but I can't seem to like the bundled HDD... It's giving me nuts. I have a Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD with SATA-III (6gbps) connector. Is the y510p able to handle 6gbps if I replace the internal hdd with my 1tb ssd? Please note, I don't intend to use a caddy and drop my second video card, no way. I want to completely remove this nonsense HDD and insert my SSD in its place. Will it work at its full speed?
Thanks for the info!
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have an 850 Pro in mine. Works great, especially with Samsung RAPID Mode (use Samsung Magician software to enable it, it's RAM caching). Of course you won't ever get 6gbps even with a PCIe drive, but you get 500mbps (as advertised) and with RAPID you get about 4gbps. So basically yes you can replace it and it'll work, the connector is SATA III .

Thanks guys that HWINFO saved the day. Sorry for the long silence but I've chosen a bad day to upgrade just before W10 release so I had to do it twice . SSD works like a charm getting the stock speeds as described by the samsung specs. The only intriguing part remains will be the ram speeds. My Kingston rams are running on 1600MHz instead of 1866MHz and I can't seem to enable XMP in the stock BIOS but I don't really want to get a third party BIOS either. Seems like I'll have to live with it.
