Buying SSD for my old hp dv6-6165tx

Hello! I bought my hp pavilion dv6-6165tx in the end of 2011 and now I want to speed up the laptop by putting an 120-128GB SSD as primary C drive and the old HDD in dvd drive caddy.
My budget is Rs. 4000 for both SSD+caddy.

I have sorted this 12.7mm cadddy Storite 12 7mm Universal Sata 2nd HDD SSD HD Caddy FOR CD DVD ROM Optical BAY | eBay that is costing me Rs. 500 after coupon code.
Is it compatible with laptop or not?

Now for the SSD I have no clue which one will be compatible with my laptop. Does my laptop supports SATA 3.0 SSDs or not?
Suggest me some good ~128GB SSD for around Rs. 3500.

Get the Samsung one. As far as compatibility is concerned, I think your laptop should support SATA 6Gbps

Now I am confused between Samsung EVO 750 120GB (3.5k), EVO 850 120GB (4.5k) and Kingston UV300 240GB (that costs 4.5k but 240GB storage)

All of them promised reading and writing speed of around 500 MB/s with SATA III 6.0 Gbps.

Kingston UV300 240GB is definitely my first choice now. May I know why it's priced so cheap (4.5k INR)? Is there anything hidden or specific cons?

There aren't any specific cons but it uses the newer Phison Controller used by Sandisk, OCZ like companies. That's why I bought it. I researched on the Phison Controller and found out that Kingston UV300 uses PS3110 from Phison Industries.
