What is IDE/ATA?

This drive type used most in consumer grade computers (commonly called an IDE drive). The ATA standard dates back to 1986 and is based on a 16-bit parallel interface which has undergone many evolutions since its introduction to increase the speed and size of the drives that it can support. The latest standard is ATA-7 which supports data transfer rates up to 133MB/sec. This is expected to be the last update for the parallel ATA standard.

What is SATA II?

Serial ATA (SATA) has been designed and marketed as the replacement for parallel ATA, the most common disk drive interface in home and office computers. SATA I drives and controllers are currently available in many new desktop machines, however, improvements to the SATA interface led to SATA II that is faster and more reliable. What's the real difference between SATA I and SATA II? SATA II is better because of three important features, port multipliers, port selectors and native command queuing. These features provide outstanding improvements over SATA I.
*SATAII Hard Drives are compatible only with SATAII enabled systems.
