I'm thinking about getting a new PATA hard drive, probably for use in an external enclosure. Does it matter whether it is ATA 100 or ATA 133?

Greengage,

if your mobo can run the 133 type then there will be a very slight difference, but nothing of any notable significance.

Any of the two will run fine.

Many thanks.

The ATA133 version would be better in combination with the correct cable.
