- QuestionWhat is the difference between SATA Hard Drive and ATA Hard Drive? Is one better than the other? (5 Answers)Answers
A SATA hard drive is the current standard for computers which replaced the older and slower (P)ATA interface. SATA is Serial ATA and PATA is Parallel ATA. The current SATA is faster and uses a much thinner cable from the drive to the motherboard. If you look at the picture, the wider black cable is (P)ATA hooked up to the DVD drive and the thin red cable is SATA hooked up to the hard drive.

- QuestionPrimary HD (5 Answers)Answers
Yes, but bear in mind that these are meant for storage really. They are 5400 RPM which means they are slower and designed for longer term use. Using as a primary bootable drive is fine but will be slower than a 7200 RPM drive.
- QuestionMy motherboard is designed for SATA 2.0 = 3 Gbits/s (Asus P6T SE). I know that SATA 3 is supposed to be compatible with SATA 2 MBs. Will this HDD work with a SATA 2 MB? I know it will be slower but wanted to make sure it will work. (5 Answers)Answers
I am also using a SATA 2.0 motherboard on Windows 10 because my processor is still working fine, and I am happy to tell you that the Evo 850 is working great on my system—so I think you should definitely get this drive. Note that the excellent performance in spite of only SATA 2.0 actually makes sense because most of what our drives are doing all day is random reads and writes, which means they typically aren't doing tasks that will allow them to realize their full read/write bandwidth. Because solid state disks (i.e., SSDs like this EVO 850) perform random read/writes orders of magnitude faster than hard disk drives (i.e., HDDs), you will see an incredible performance boost even though you are running SATA 2. And this EVO 850 is proving to be exceptional at everything it does in my hands.
