    their is nothing wid SATA 1 or 2, its only the increase of Bandwidth in Sata 2, than Sata 1.
    You Can Go For Hitachi, it is also a good option, I Myself use it for 3 years now, no problem at all

    Give me the model number please required to determine whether it is green or not. But most probably it should be a green one.
