WD Caviar Black drives combine a high performance electronics architecture with a rock solid mechanical architecture to deliver the perfect storage solution for your fully-loaded PC or maxed out gaming machine. Cool drive operation, no-touch head technology, and leading-edge vibration protection ensure enhanced reliability and sustained data throughput. And we back it all up with a 5-year limited warranty.
High Performance Electronics Architecture
- Dual processor- Twice the processing power to maximize performance.
- Colossal cache - Bigger, faster cache of up to 64 MB means faster performance.
Rock Solid Mechanical Architecture
Dual actuator technology - A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy. (2 TB only)
StableTrac - The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations.
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.
Massive Capacity - WD Caviar Black SATA drives are available in capacities up to 2 TB.
Compatible - We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab™ and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
5 Year Limited Warranty
Power computing applications such as multimedia, video and photo editing, and maxed out gaming computers.

This is a very fast hard drive, and I can't say as I can hear it over the fans and the other hard drive in my PC but it is very fast getting read speeds of about 150 MBs, and write speeds of around 100 MBs, it is very fast and boot up Windows 7 in under 45 seconds and it is great if you can't afford an SSD as it is not as fast but it still kicks out some fast speeds and great performance

I bought this drive to replace that fitted in my Humax HDR-Fox T2/1TB PVR. Worked first time, faster access, don't fit any links, quieter than original. I'm going to buy another drive for my parents similar PVR for Christmas. Recommended.

Great Drive well worth the investment

This HDD is great! I purchased this drive because I needed a mass of storage and fast reliable drive. The load times for Call of Duty etc are on a par with my 64MB Raptor, if not better. I would highly recommend this drive for any gamer tired of uninstalling games everytime a new one comes out.
