Actually, it won't explain anything.
Modern platter or rotational hard drives don't saturate even the 1.5 Mbps SATA first gen spec without extra help (RAID, very fast spindle speeds), that's roughly 150 MB/sec. Most hard drives barely touch 120MB/sec even when they're the faster, new ones. SATA 3 offers more of a ceiling than 1.5, as does 6.
The bottom line is that the hard drive likely isn't slow because of the interface, there's something else going on with your system or you bought a crummy hard drive
