SSD sataIII or sataII for mobo sataII?

I have a SSD Corsair Force 3 120Gb on my notebook MSI http://www.msi.com/product/nb/GT683.html# /?div=Specification GT683, sometimes the SSD fails to be recognized by the BIOS for a while, and then back to nornal after few minutes.

I spoke with the seller and he said the right would replace it with an SSD SATAII Corsair, since my laptop does not support SATAIII.

However, I see very positive reviews of the Intel SSD, and would make an exchange for 510 120GB Intel (he has no SATAII Intel SSD).

I would know whether that SSD SataIII have some kind of problem or incompatibility in SATAII, or just have a lower performance?

Sory my bad english.

SATA 6Gb/s is completely backward compatible with SATA 3Gb/s by design.

The usage of a SATA 6Gb/s SSD on a SATA 3Gb/s port will not cause any issues.

Decides to buy an Intel SSD 510 Series, I'm awaiting your arrival.

Thank you for your attention.
