Dumb Question About HDD Interfacing...

...

...ok, so i'm fixin to get another HDD to do backups to (make bit-for-bit images of computer HDD), ...figure might as well go w/ the SATA III (6Gbps, ...yeah i know HDD's can't attain that rate, but that's another story ), ...but the SATA III drives are the latest generation and don't seem to be any more costly than the previous generation drives still out there....

ok, ..so can anyone tell me if SATA II controllers are forward compatible to SATA III devices, at least in so far as up to the SATA II speeds? this HDD would be in a USB (or eSata)-connected dock or enclosure, ...and at some future point could wind up inside the computer (SATA II MOBO/backplane)...

Definitely. The drive will operate at SATA 2 specs, which will more than likely make little to no difference in typical use.
