    I noticed on these two drives they have a jumper pin on them
    with jumper pin 1.5 g/sec
    without jumper pin 3.0 g/sec

    If my motherboard is compatible with the 3.0 g/sec transfer rate
    can I pull the jumper out, or do the drives only operate at that speed in a raid configuration or is it even worth the hassle ?

    THat jumper is so that the faster Sata 2 (300Gb/s) drives will work on the older Sata (150Gb/s) sata controllers. If your controllers are Sata 2 then yo can remove the jumper and not worry about it.

    haven't run into any of these lately and had to look up my motheboard to make sure it was compatible with the 3.0 / sec transfer rate (which it is)

    the wording confused me as it seemed like ti needed to be in raid configuration for the 3.0 but will give it a whirl when I get home

    tanks alot !!
