No compromises

High performance, high reliability, cutting edge technology and a 5-year limited warranty make up WD Black, the ideal drive for those who demand only the best.

Features:

SATA 6 Gb/s interface - Twice the interface speed with backwards compatibility to legacy SATA 1.5 Gb/s or 3 Gb/s standards.

Dual processor - Twice the processing power to maximize performance.

Dynamic Cache - WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there's an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.

NoTouch ramp load technology - The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Upgrading your drive is easy - WD Acronis TrueImage, available as a free download on the WD Support site, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to get all the benefits of a new drive.

Note: This is a bare drive and does not include any cables. We also have spare SATA cables for desktops.

The WD advantage - WD put their products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. On average, each new product goes through 600,000 hours of testing.
