    These would not apply to you. SCSI is a different type of hard drive interface than you use. You use SATA (serial ATA). Simply ignore that tab, I'm sure your performance is just great already (y)

    Tagged command queuing and synchronous transfers are two performance-enhancing features that are standard with SCSI hard disks, but haven't been available for IDE hard disks. The new SATA standard includes these features, but not all SATA drives will actually use them. You have no reason to disable either of them there, that's just a troubleshooting option.

    Yep, my reply was a bit oversimplified. Guilty. :eek: When you say
    do you mean the SATA2 standard, or just newer products in general? Would love to learn more on this, thanks for expanding on this, Arcadion.
