There is a new interface called SATA II that is currently the best. SATA II drives are usually backwards-compatible. For example, my hard drive has a jumper I can put in to limit it to the original SATA. I forgot to link to the Wikipedia article here in my last post for more information. However, no drive that I know of sustain speeds anywhere near the maximum of serial ATA 3.0 gigabits/s.

I have a Seagate that works very well, and I'd recommend either Seagate or Western Digital.

Do you have any software in mind? Or, some hard drives come with software that allows you to clone from an older hard drive. Seagate's DiskWizard uses Acronis, I believe, which is a very popular imaging program. You can read about DiskWizard here. The instructions vary for the specific software you use for cloning/migrating data. Western Digital has its Data Lifeguard Tools that I believe can migrate data, although I am not sure if it uses an image or just copies the files. An alternative would be something like Symantec's Norton Ghost, which is quite popular.

There is a guide on cloning here from PCStats.com that includes a few free alternatives, although I would recommend either Ghost or the tools provided from the hard drive manufacturer.
