New WD SATA-II drives lack command queuing

Last week, we reported that Western Digital had begun shipping Caviar SE16 Serial ATA II hard drives. At the time, we were unsure whether the new drives supported command queuing, and we've since confirmed that they do not. Western Digital doesn't consider command queuing to be an important feature for desktop products, but plans to introduce an enterprise version of the SE16 with command queuing support.
