    Sata II ?

    umm so im buying a Hard drive and found the;

    Samsung SpinPoint P120S 250GB SATA2 8MB 7200RPM

    i wonder, does SATA II or 2 .. mean i wont be able to use with a regular Serial ATA drive? (the case/mobo in question is on Shuttle's SN27P2)

    help would be great, cheers guys (and gals )

    they are forwards/backwards compatible

    SATA2 drive will work on SATA1 motherboard (may require a jumper being changed on the drive)

    While we're on the subject. Can anyone tell me why WD Raptors are SATA 1? Are they just old?
    With love and many thanks,

    I'll confirm that again, great drive imo There is a slight performance trade-off from a set of benchmarks I saw, but, what real-world difference it makes, all I can say is you can't really hear it
