I received this drive the other day and immediately installed it in my system. My motherboard has SATA II connections (Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9) so I was interested to see how this new drive would perform. Well, it greatly exceeded my expectations. Anyway, I'd recommend this drive to anyone, it does exactly what they say it does, and more.

-Da Judge quote

I am very satisified with this hard drive. It was easy to install and I notice a difference in the speed of my computer. I got it at a great price too. You will need to purchase a serial data cable if you don't already have one because this is a drive only item. I highly recommended this drive.
