    I have a Motherboard that is supposed to be SATA 150 ready. However, the HD I bought is a SATA 300 one. Will the HD work?
    Thanks.

    Will it work, most of the time yes. If the drive is not compatible at a 3Gb. transfer speed you should be able to put a jumper on the drive to limit the transfer rate to 1.5Gb. and it should work.
