Yes, they are all inter-compatible. You just won't get SATA2 speeds with a STAT1 drive, and vice-versa.

in addition to above, if you have a mechanicall drive (not ssd), i don't think you would notice it (if it was sata3 down to sata2, not sure of sata2 down to sata1 but im guessing its the same). mechanical drive is just too slow to saturate the bandwidth
