ThinkPad E540 optical drive sata port

2014-07-18, 9:22 AM

Hallo,
I would like to know the interface type of the optical drive sata port of a ThinkPad E540. It's a sata I, sata II or sata III?
Kindest regards,

gianpaolo

I installed a new HDD in a optical bay hard drive caddy and I found that the port is a SATA2 (3 Gbit/s).
I hope this will be useful to other owners of a E540.

Sure? On a E530 it has already been SATA3!

Hi pustekuchencake

CrystalDiskInfo shows SATA 300 as current mode for the drive in the caddy and SATA 600 for the internal drive.
So I think that the optical drive interface is SATA 2.
