    I was thinking about upgrading to sata2 moby and drives, but my supplier keeps saying that there are having trouble/problems with them and don't buy sata2 stuff until it gets sorted out.

    seemingly he has had a load of sata2 stuff returned because of problems with them.

    whady ya think?

    I would stick with just normal SATA for now. I haven't seen or heard of any major problems with SATA2, but you will rarely achieve the 150gb/s that SATA offers, let alone the 300gb/s from SATA 2.

    Long story short, not cost effective atm.

    The advantage to SATA2 (atleast here in the uk) is theat the drives are cheaper.

    i see no reason not to get SATA2 over SATA1.
