WD is leading the way with a full lineup of SATA 6 Gb/s drives.
Over the years the industry has increased bus bandwidth from PATA through SATA 1.5 Gb/s and SATA 3 Gb/s to keep up with the demand for higher transfer rates. The next evolution of bus bandwidth has now been achieved with the introduction of SATA 6 Gb/s, (SATA 3.0). We’ve added a SATA 6 Gb/s interface to our award-winning WD Caviar Blue and WD Caviar Black desktop hard drives in capacities from 250 GB to 2 TB. This transition to a SATA 6 Gb/s interface aligns with the introduction of SATA 6 Gb/s-supporting chip sets and motherboards coming to the market.

Western Digital drives have always had a reputation for being good bits of kit. With there new range of drives, they cannot be beaten for speed, reliability or value. I recently used this drive in a repair job for an old machine with a worn out HDD and it made such a difference the customer could not believe it. Load/boot times reduced dramatically, and finding a file became so much quicker.
