This is how I feel. Yes it's good that there are SATA III ports that people can use, which is great, but why would anyone settle for having essentially defective SATA II ports?! One big reason is resale value.
People are downplaying this because they've spend hundreds on shiny new gear and then find out it's defective and so are trying to not feel as bad. It's a foreseeable defense mechanism, heck, I'd probably do the same thing.
Seems like we are in the "Bargaining" stage of grief. We've accepted that this is real and while some are still angry, most are trying to bargain by saying "oh its not that bad, just use SATA III and even then you probably won't see your ports go bad since it's not 100% chance of failing and even if it does fail it's over time and gradual and you probably won't lose data integrity just slower speeds."Edited by nist7 - 2/1/11 at 9:30am
