I have a four year old Dell 4100 Desktop running Win 2k WITH 512 MB of RAM
and an 850 MHZ P 3. It had a Maxtor 80 GB ATA 100 hard drive whish
unfortunately has failed and needs to be replaced. I am considering a
Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120 GB ATA 133 drive as the replacement (Maxtor #
6Y120L0). Will the difference in ATA be a problem? Other suggestions? TIA
Fred

I've got an older pc that only supports ATA 100, and my ATA 133 capable
hard drive works just fine. Mind you it probably doesn't use it's full
potential...

has the same conclusion.
