this is the maximum theoretical performance. In real life terms, it won't ever approach this speed.

Only thing to look for, is that the IDE connector cable is also rated at 133.

Download HD Tach from click here This will tell you how your drive performs but don't expect the peak transfer rate to be anywhere near 133MBs.
