OCZ Vertex SSD in T61P?

2009-05-22, 1:43 AM

I know there's been a vigorous discussion in different places about SSD's in Thinkpads, but I was interested in whether anyone could share their experience with an OCZ Vertex SSD in a Thinkpad T6x?  If so was it worth the investment?  Were there compatibiity problems?  Is there a different model I should be considering?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I've actually read that thread (that was one of the discussions I was refering to in my OP) but it's not clear from that discussion exactly how the problems described relate to the OCZ Vertex & the T61 (he was using an Intel & OCZ Core in a T60).

 

I know HDD's in an UltraBay of a T6x only work at SATA 1 speeds but my understanding is that this not the case in the interdral drive slot - that's why I was asking if anyone has actually tried one.

Thanks for the video ghattiya!  Great to see the T61P recognizes the drive without Bios issues.  Looking forward to the next installment - interested to see how the machine performs in everyday use.

yup, i don't think there'd any difference between the machines in terms of drive recognition.  looking forward to your next update ...
