Hi, Can anyone tell me whether this would be suitable for a Dell XPS M1710 Gaming machine, desperately need to upgrade the internal hard drive but am struggling to find out what woould be compatible. Very grateful for any advice anyone can give
Mmmm, I would look a bit deeper and you may find that just because it says SATA connector it will do. You will see that they are NOT all compatible with each other. Have a look here: http://www.allpinouts.org/index.php/Serial_ATA_(SATA,_Serial_Advanced_Technology_Attachment). You will find you have SATA-150 which is one of the older types. I would suggest you contact a shop and ask them for help like http://www.misco.co.uk on freephone 0800 038 8880. I am not affiliated to them by the way. By the way faster is better and is having a large amount of read-ahead memory.
