review: " I have two of these drives configured for Raid0 and it works just fine. However, I found out that Maxtor doesn't have the Serial ATA Bridge one on the Drive!
Oh well you can't bet the price you get what you pay for, that's why I gave it 3 out of 5... next time i'll do the homework before buying a new product.
FYI, true SATA drives are as follows: Western Digital SATA; SeaGate SATA.
Don't make the same mistake I did, if you are looking for true SATA dirves...."
" They are very quiet, even quieter than my vantec stealth 120mm fans."

7-pin SATA cable

System Requirements

The 7 pin right-angle Serial ATA cable creates a great internal-CPU connectivity solution using the newest ATA technology.
Serial ATA cables reduces your power consumption, compared to a standard parallel ATA cable, while increasing transfer speed
and dramatically enhancing airflow within the CPU. It offers ideal support for high-end, heat generating applications such
as gaming, full-motion video and multimedia.
By reducing your PC's internal temperature, potential damage to your systems performance and lifespan can be averted.
[Compare to 40-pin IDC cables for Ultra DMA/ATA-133 Drives (IDE / EIDE cable - 40 PIN IDC (F) - 40 PIN IDC (F) - Length 0.6 m)]
