    SATA 600 is the more commonly-used name for SATA III, they are the same thing.

    SATA 150 = SATA (first generation)
    SATA 300 = SATA II
    SATA 600 = SATA III

    In any case, a SATA III drive will work on a SATA or a SATA II port, but drive performance will be slower (dictated by the port spec).
  2. best answer? Thanks but that's not necessary since mine was the only answer.

    You are the man! But why can't they stick with one name??
