SCSI cards and devices will negotiate a speed to suit the slowest device on the SCSI bus. I note from the web that the Symbios 53c1010 card supports Ultra 160, so it will talk quite happily with a U320 device, but you will only get a maximum of U160 performance.

The HP LP1000r will take a little more research. I will investigate and get back to you. If I remember correctly,  the LP1000r is an older bix and *may* have the 8GB BIOS limitation.

For now the HP lp1000r has a ST373307LW disk which is 73 Gb so I guess it can handle that size :)

In that case, go for it. The new disc will work nicely.
