    Question  SATA II OR SATA III? by Beno

    Is this drive Sata II or Sata III? The description states Sata III, but in a previous comment left by an aria member of staff, they state it is "Sata II".

    Answer by joshb on Wednesday, April 4, 2012

    This is a Sata 6GBPS Drive.


    Question  compatability by Paul

    Hi I have a WD 10EACS-00D6B1 thats playing up would this be a suitable replacement & does new drive come with disk copy to transfer drive over?

    Answer by stewartz on Friday, March 2, 2012
    It should suffice for a replacement, you will not get the benefit from SATA III unless your board supports it, but it should at least work. As for disk copy, I do not believe it comes with the drive, but please contact the sales team on 0844 999 2499 who will try and clarify it for you.

    Question  Question by lpacus


    Do you know if this has the new new "advanced" 4k sector size? If so it won't work in Sky HD box. Thanks!

    Answer by andrewn on Sunday, February 19, 2012
    It does, although seagate do claim that "SmartAlign technology look and act like 512-byte sector legacy hard drives to your host computer". No idea about Sky HD compatibility however.

    Will this drive(Quick code: 44143) provide quicker data retrieval compared to your Quick code: 44249, 1TB Seagate Barracuda Green ST1000DL002 3.5" SATA II Hard Drive. due to having a faster spin speed ?????????
    My mobo is: ASUS P8Z68-V Intel Z68 (REV B3) Socket 1155 DDR3 PCI-Express.

    Answer by daniele on Sunday, October 16, 2011
    That is correct:
    The green drives are the eco-friendly low-power low-speed drives whilst the blue drives are the faster-spin performance drives

    Question  Will it work on a TiVo DVR at 3Gb/s by ccrider

    The TiVo Community forum has no idea if this will work, because of the auto-negotiate thing. Can the drive be jumpered to run at 3Gb/s?

    Thanks Much,
