Is SATA3Gbps same as SATA300?

SATA3Gbps = 3 GigsPS
SATA300 = 300 MegsPS
SATA150 = 150 MegsPS

Correct?

and each one is back compatible SATA3 -SATA300 - SATA150?

Thanks for the help

Also, would i be able to run my IDE Driveas like a slave or just a free floater as to copy folders and files over 2 one of the 2 SATA Drives i am purchasing?

SATAII = SATA 3Gb/s.

SATAI = SATA 1.5Gb/s = legacy SATA.

SATAII is backwards compatible so it will work in SATAI ports.

IDE drives are separate to SATA and will talk to each other as normal through Windows.

ok but here is where my confusion is and as i have listed above. Tigerdirect listed the Western Digital / Caviar SE 16 / 250GB / 7200 / 16MB / SATA-300 / OEM / Hard Drive as being SATA300 but NEwegg lsitit as being SATA3Gb/s. are they same or differnt but my mother board which is a KN8 SLi runs SATA300. and if you look the KN8 Ultra uses SATA3Gb/s. so is one better then other and if so can i get a SATAHD that is the betterone and have work on my board. or is newegg and tiger direct just confused? cause i'm lsot and very flustered at the matter

Also, i've been hearing alot about SATA Hybrid drivers for use with Windows Vista's ReadyDrive.

would it be worth it to just get 2 Seagate / 320GB / 7200 / 16MB / SATA-300 / OEM / Hard Drive

Newegg drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Tiger direct drive - Seagate / 320GB / 7200 / 16MB / SATA-300 / OEM / Hard Drive

SATA/150 or SATA 1, run at 1.5 gigabits per second (Gbit/s), Serial ATA uses 8B/10B encoding at the physical layer. This encoding scheme has an efficiency of 80%, resulting in an actual data transfer rate of 1.2 Gbit/s, or 150 megabytes per second (MB/s).

SATA 3.0 Gbit/s uses 8B/10B encoding, resulting in a maximum data transfer rate of 2.4 Gbit/s or 300 MB/s for the wire. However, hard drives cannot supply data nearly at these speeds, so the actual speed depends on the hard disk.

Some shops in order to be more honest choose to call the new drives sata 300, but a sata 3.0Gbits/s and a sata 300 are the same thing.
