Hello I do hope you cab help with my enquiry. My oldish Dell Desktop XPS 8100 has a failed Internal Hard Drive.
I have found a new WD hard drive that might be the right one for my PC - WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX 1 TB, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache, 7200 RPM Desktop 3.5-inch Hard Drives
The Studio XPS 8100 has two 3.5" bays for hard disk drives. It has four SATA 2.0 (1.5Gbps/3.0Gbps) ports. Can you please confirm that the proposed WD drive [ SATA 6.Gbs] is backward compatible to SATA 2.0.?
I really do not understand if the new WD10EZEX 1 TB, SATA 6 Gb/s, is compatible with the Dell XPS 8100 which currently has a none working Samsung HD 103SJ SATA 3.00.
I have asked on the Dell forum -they advised check with WD ?, your comments awaited
