    Sata 3 is I think for USB 3. Maybe the same for SATA 2 for usb2 and the same for sata1. Idk

    Not sure about the 31 but the CF-19 MK5 is not SATA 3 . At least mine's not and I have a MK5.

    My CF19 mk5 is SATA3 according to the HWinfo results. As BaRRmaley said above mks 6 & 7 reverted to SATA 2.

    I don't have my CF-52 mk5 anymore but i had a fast SSD (800gb intel S3500) in it and did not notice anything unusual when doing benchmarks. it was an i5 3360M cpu.

    I have a hard time figuring out why Panasonic would revert back to sata 2 on the 6th and 7th gen cf-19, it's not like sata3 ever had stability issues(never heard about that).
    Wouldn't be surprised if a bios update enables Sata3(as some motherboards i have used before could "force it on").

    There is a success story here with a cf-19 mk7, the user enabled sata3 and higher speed ddr3)

    Most likely power and/or heat.

    Also CF-19's real users, including me, are not worried :)
