About the only plus is that it is 64MB buffer. I did not expect it to run like an SSD but I did expect better results then what I found. As far as price I figured as it was just $150 I would get it. Just to have the 2TB space if nothing else. Oh, I did mention that it was miss priced at Best Buy. The little tag said $150 and listed the drive. I had to argue with them until the manager finally gave in and said to do it at that price.

I have the P6X58D Premium that does support 2 of the Sata 3

Have you ran the HD Tune on this HDD plugged into the SATA2 (3Gb/s) port?

Would expect it to be the same, but would be interesting to see it confirmed

All good I re-read that later and should have put a smile in there or something. Looks like I was picking on you and I wasn't. So hard to just read the words and not hear the tone....

So yes the newest on market and top end at that have it.
According to Asus' web site the motherboard you have listed only supports SATA II 3G. I am not trying to upset you I am just trying to point out that if your motherboard only supports SATA II 3G then installing a SATA III 6G hard drive will NOT gain any performance because the motherboard does not support it. I just want your tests to be fair and make sure that you are testing a drive in a way that will truly show its performance.

You are confusing this Thread. Yes YOUR motherboard supports SATA III however the OP's motherboard does NOT. Please don't confuse the OP. Please check my links on the OP's motherboard. Thank you.
