hi, i want to connect a ssd to my computer but i can only use a slimsata cable to plug it in, with an adapter. would that be still faster than an HDD? as I think i was told that that slimsata only will transfer speeds of sata 1. but im not so sure.
thanks

Slim SATA being limited to SATA 1 is untrue, it will handle SATA III, it all depends on the port on your device.

Even with that limit an SSD will always blow away a Hard drive
if what i have been told is true, if i get a dvd player caddy to put my ssd in, will it beat HDD speeds?

It will beat HDD speeds always. I don't think you need a "DVD Caddy" i don't even know what you mean by that. Most SSDs come with a slot adapter depending on the slot size. As for the plug that should work, again it depends if for sure that the connector. I can't find any good pics of that system taken apart to be sure here.

there are no drives im replacing, i want to take out the dvd player so i can fit a SSD in as there is no more space for one
and there are no more sata ports.
also, the HDD that was already in my PC is connected to the 4 pin connector, there are no more. and i cannot find any splitters online, as i have been looking for hours or them

You are replacing a drive, a DVD drive, I need to see how that is mounted and connected.

Its really hard to tell whats going on in those images, maybe if you zoom out a bit and show me more of the area, also I want to see the back and sides of the DVD drive itself.

The plug adapter you linked should work, I don't see any reason why not. I am not convinced you need a caddy of any sort, if you do the one you linked definitely is not the right one.

yes, thank you for your help. my main idea is to just let it sit there are there are no moving parts so I'm not worried about it being damaged
