As long as you can run a SATA2 drive then it will be fine

I have a SATA2 port, Is that what you mean? I have 4 ports. If not what do you mean?

Which depends on your motherboard...

Post details of your system and someone will tell you!

It's 7,200rpm with a 32mb buffer - I can't see any issues if your playing music, or even video with a drive like that.

The only problem I see is that it is a Samsung drive.

80% of the faulty hard drives I have had to replace in the last 6 months are Samsung, usually between 6 months and 3 years old.

I've never had to replace a Western Digital drive that wasn't younger than 4 years.

We don't sell any other brand in our shop as we like the reliability.
