Hello, I have a question about the specs for sata.
   1) Is sata 1 max. speed of 1.5 Gbits per second or 1.5 Gbytes per second?
The thing is that I have a Raid 0 with two Samsung HD. This system reports
in Sandra XL a drive index of 186 MBytes per second. Now, if we divide
1500/8 (Sata 1 1500MBits/s / 8 bits) the result is 187.5 MBytes/sec. This
means my system is Sata 2 compliant but is running in Sata 1 mode.

1) Gbits.

And its probably not running in SATA 1 mode. The only drives that can
exceed SATA 1 speed are the new SSD ones and even then, only the high
speed variety. There's not one single mechanical hard drive on the
market that can exceed SATA 1.
