Default Is this a Sata 2? (link)

Hi all, is this drive a Sata 2?

http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?DriveID=133

I'm guessing no, since I don't see it saying "2" anywhere. I just know my last SATA drive was 150mb transfer and this said 300, not sure if that has anything to do with determining Sata 1 or 2.

Thanks, sorry for such a simple question.

A massive 16 MB cache combined with up to 300 MB/s transfer rate make these ultra-fast drives the perfect solution for the fully loaded PC with a fast processor.


Yup it is SATA II

SATA I is only 150

Thanks, Pzerofgh & Nitestick!

In the BIOS setting for Sata 2 in my MOBO it has two options, IDE and SATA, and default is IDE. Should I change this to SATA when I install?
