cold sorry.

Hi all
I was wondering if there is a way to find out if my old laptop can use this.
Its a hp dv8000 about 7 years old, don't want to get rid of it cost me £1100 back then and now its worth about £50. I don't mind spending a bit more on it and using it as a home computer.
Also are there limits on the harddrive such as you can only use upto 500gb and 5400 rpm. I think the laptop has 2 harddrives so im thinking of putting in large storage hardrive in aswell.

Based on current pricing today and if you only need SATA II connection, it represents reasonable value from ebuyer.

Yes it will work. Don't know the exact SATA specs of this model but guessing SATA 1 and if so you would not get the full speed from the drive.

Seems like your harddrive is IDE interface, so can not use a SSD (mostly and cheapest these days are all SATA .)

Found a specs manual here,
h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg…pdf

Still not sure so if you could take your harddrive off and see if they are SATA. easy to tell like the photo below

Also for your information my wife has a Thinkpad T43, I just bought a ultrabay SATA harddrive bay like this( to replace the optical drive as a second hard drive) cost me 9 quids delivered.
http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTAwMFgxMDAw/$%28KGrHqV,!icE9eeEMJY3BPfWbZZrIg~~60_35.JPG

your version is probably this one. a little bit expensive.
ebay.co.uk/itm…1d1

Also even you can use the replacement HDD bay you can not use the full speed due to motherboard interface bottleneck.

Someone has tested even you use this bay on thinkpad T43, you can get a 80m/s read speed and don't know the write speed.

But still far more better than a 20mb/s IDE old drive.

The IBM thinkpad T43 was 7 years old as well. So back to the old days they were using IDE coz SATA is not popular yet due to cost reason.

We can support you all the information but you are the one who spend the real money. Make sure which one you need before you click the purchase button.

thanks for all the support, I will open up my old laptop and see if it is a IDE drive. thanks again

It is Read 280MB/s Write 270MB/s and SATA II only (no SATA III compatability), it also doesn't come with a bracket to let it fit a 3.5" disk slot.

As said before it's cheaper off EBuyer (and they will sell the bracket for another £3), still a good price though for a decent spec drive.

Hi all just checked my laptop and its a SATA drive, lol anyway of finding out what harddrive would be compatable with my laptop? what sata drive can be put in? I don't want it to be bottle necked by the motherboard.

Its a HP pavilion DV8000

XP isn't really designed for SSDs which means (as far as I'm aware, at least) it lacks TRIM commands etc to be able to keep the SSD running at optimal performance. As such, you're likely to suffer performance degradation over time.

thanks mate, I think i'll just upgrade to a normal hard drive. I think it already has a SATA revision 1.0 hard drive. Can i go up to SATA revision 2.0 or SATA revision 3.0? In terms of rpm what is the highest i can go upto and largest sizein terms of gb?

I'm confused. How can this week old posting become hot now when the price has fallen and is cheaper elsewhere?

I noticed this the other day, I still use and like xP and was thinking of SSD, apparently this is what you need (built in trim! what ever that is?) ebuyer.com/341…20g

Can I just add my bit and say I would be very careful when putting SSDs into older laptops - even my relatively new Dell XPS L701x (now sold) had a problem with SSDs where it wouldn't see the drive unless you turned the machine on first, then warm-rebooted (Ctrl-Alt-Del) during the BIOS logo. Something to do with drive initialisation. I had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron desktop (AMD Phenom X4 from 2011). The drives this happened with were a Corsair Force F60 and OCZ Vertex Plus 30GB.

It may work and I hope it does as even with only SATA1 speeds, you'll still get a massive speed boost, probably more than you could get out of any other upgrade for that machine.

Whilst youre right it's not the whole story as these days the drives firmware does do its own housekeeping which does serve to keep this from happening. It would be better to have TRIM support but theres no real data to tell you what will happen on a specific drive on XP over time. Obviously i'd recommend win7 myself though.

SATA 2 . WTF ? I need sata 3 pls

Guys, Crucial V4 are on the corner and price as I can see are lower than anything else: dabs.com/cat…0v4

Sata II is 6gbs, sata I is 3gbs. Sata III doesnt exist. Confusing isnt it?

This seems like a really good idea... I have a T41 and just don't want to get rid of it. I was going to get a pata ssd but I like the idea of getting the ultrabay adapter and sata ssd.

Any idea how the reported sped of 80MB was achieved on ide interface (with sata apater) which is what 33/66?!?!

Many thanks

Bought a Skandisk ultra 120gb, lasted four days then my HP laptop said (no system disc), what a load crap this device turned out to be, no longer will I buy anymore solid state drives.
