SATA300 vs. SATA600 compatibility by Norm Why[_2_]
Hi, I have a 500GB Seagate Barracuda that comes with a 5 year warrantee. I'm having problems where various files became corrupted and don't work. I've exchanged it once. Seagate Tools said it was slow. Maybe I'm doing something wrong under the assumption that SATA300 and SATA600 are compatible?...

Replace ethernet cables with POF backbone on home Powerline ? by x13
