WD RE 250GB 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive (HDD) overview

WD RE3 drives combine up to 32 MB cache with SATA 3 Gb/s transfer rate for lightning-fast performance in demanding server and storage applications. Technologically advanced acoustics minimize noise. Cool drive operation and enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it. Key Features

Massive capacity - WD RE3 Enterprise SATA drives are available in capacities up to 1 TB.

Dual processor - Twice the processing power results in a 20% performance improvement over the previous generation.

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.

RAFF™ - Our fourth generation RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time for up to a 60% performance improvement in high vibration environments over the previous generation of drives.

IntelliSeek™ - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.

Multi-axis shock sensor - Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data.

RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) - Prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.

Third generation dynamic fly height - Each read-write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.

Thermal extended burn-in test - Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation. 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.

Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - WD RE3 drives utilize PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density, reliability, and design margin.
