@mayer - As far as I know none of the current WD drives offer SATA II support (2.5” or 3.5”).

Samsung is the only SSD that states SATA II support as far as I know Samsung 860 EVO

For HDD’s at this time only the Seagate 3.5” FireCuda and Barracuda offer SATA II support. Both the current 2.5” Seagate drives are SATA III only

That's really great to know! I have used probably a dozen of the 860 EVO & QVO drives. I now know what to keep in stock that will work with 6.0 & 3.0, & 1.5.

QVO - InterfaceSATA 6 Gb/s Interface, compatible with SATA 3 Gb/s & SATA 1.5 Gb/s interface


@mayer - The newer Samsung 860 QVO drive is also a good drive! But, I would only recommend using it in the older Mac's as it has a shorter lifespan and is a slower drive. For heavy use systems stick with the 860 EVO.
