    Yes but why put out the money for a SSD that will connect to a SATA 1.5 port?

    I replaced my DVD with Blu Ray player and had to use a 9.5 mm player. It would seem to me your hard drive caddie would need to be 9.5 mm not 12.7 mm. Check to make sure.

    As others have alluded to, you can do what you're asking by using a caddy. The SSD is placed into the caddy and the caddy slides into the optical drive bay (after you remove your current Blu-Ray drive).

    Even SATA 2 would be very slow connection for an SSD they are really set up to run on SATA 3

    Yes you can put in a giant 1 TB 7200 RPM for less money and about the same performance.
