More about what important cache sata connections
  1. Best answer
    Cache is more important than SATA connection with regards to HDDs.

    HDDs can be SATA III "compatible", not SATA III "capable".
    A single HDD cannot spin fast enough to saturate a SATA II port, let alone a SATA III port.
  2. I forgot to mention that both are 500GB hard drive in that regard which is good and other thing is that

    i have also seen Hitachi hard drive with SATA III with 32 MB cache
    what is your opinion about Hitachi Hard drive quality ?
  3. Hitachi Deskstars are good quality drives. I've never owned one but I haven't heard anything negative about them.
