Question  SATA 1 by Sunny

Does this HDD come with a jumper to force the drive into SATA 1 speed?

Answer by stewartz on Monday, August 9, 2010
As far as I am aware it isnt, but if you plug it into a SATA I port it will automatically slow down to SATA I speed.

Answer by cci on Wednesday, July 21, 2010
As long as you have a spare 3.5" HDD bay and spare SATA port on your motherboard you can install this hard drive. This is a bare drive - it does not come with instructions.

compatibility by BILL

will this HDD work with an HP sr5601uk? currently has a Hitachi HDP725032GLA360 ATA device installed.

Response by stevenl
While I cannot guarantee compatibility, this HDD should be fine in your HP SR5601uk.

Question  ASRock Penryn1600SLI-110dB by Ben

Will the HD work with my ASRock Penryn1600SLI-110dB motherboard?

I'm hoping to add this as an extral drive, will I need to change my power supply?


Answer by stevenl on Monday, October 12, 2009
While I cannot guarantee compatibility, this HDD should be fine with the ASRock Penryn1600SLI-110dB.

As for Power Supply, the external bay should have a power supply which should be sufficent to power one of these drives.

 Great drive by RyanMcC

Great 1TB drive - I've had one of these drives for around 5 weeks now. Runs both cool and quietly. Highly recommended.
