Hate to self-reply, but I'd like to toss in another question:

Is it a given that modern SATA drives still support 1.5Gb/s?  Or, do I
need to make sure the drive supports this or has a jumper?  The
motherboard this is going onto only has SATA-1.5.  (Replacing those
drives was actually step 1 towards upgrading it eventually anyway...
I needed to take it one step at a time since half the drives in there
are PATA and good luck finding a motherboard that supports 4 of those
plus 4+ SATA like the old one...)
