My System Specs


Yeah I see your point but it was really the hard drives that pushed optical drives to go sata. Why use old tech when new is better? Makes sense to me. There really is no point buying old hardware that has been around for ages. Imho, if you are buying an old DVD drive, it's time to upgrade. However I wouldn't care if you used an old one from a transfer to a new computer.

I was simply stating the theoretical transfer speeds of the cables. I should have mentioned the speeds of the drives. They only switched because everything else did.
