In this now obsolete video (consumer hard drives no longer have jumpers), I'll show you why it was important to check a SATA drive's jumper settings. It often had to do with the drive's performance.

This did not apply to all SATA drives, and that's you should have looked your drive over to see what the jumper settings controlled.

In the case shown here, some Seagate SATA drives shipped with a jumper setting that limited their bandwidth to 1.5 Gb/sec.

Also... for those of you insistent on correcting me, I realize I should have used needle-nose pliers instead of a screwdriver to get that jumper off the drive. Thanks for pointing it out, over and over and over and over and over and over and over...
