Ahh lol, makes sense, I'm translating some urgent stuff for a Client right now and my brain is elsewhere.
I'll read that when I get a chance but using Wikipedia as a source of quality information is at best sketchy....
EDIT: Had a quick glance at the article. It states that some top of the line HDs are "close to saturating" the SATA300 interface. That is true, and it's basically what was said in this thread. Just like I said in my first post, I wouldn't worry unless you plan to buy the next top of the line 700GBP model
the manufacturers come up with. Even then SATA300 will probably still be at the limit of saturation. I believe that even the enthusiast gaming performance market will still be well catered for by SATA300 at least for another year.
