The outside of the box lists:
However, when I physically take the HDD out of the box, it reads:
S/N: BLAHBLAHBLAH (The serial DOES, in fact, match that on the label outside of the box)
MDL: WD5000AAKX - 001CA0
From what I can gather from Google, the outside sticker refers to a SATA II (3 Gbps) HDD and the label ON the HDD refers to a SATA III (6 Gbps)… Someone help please? Is there any real way to tell? Would I even notice a difference (I’m a gamer)?
On the label ON the HDD it also says “pins 5-6 limits PHY to 3Gbps”
Why would it say that if it WEREN’T operating higher than that, aka SATA III ?
