Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB Hard Drive. Fast!

NewerTech StoraDrive™ for storing bare hard drives
Western Digital RE4 2.0TB

Just in for testing courtesy of Other World Computing are a pair of the Western Digital Caviar Black 2.0TB enterprise hard drives (part WDGWD2001FASS).

Price and peformance

The Caviar Black offers an attractive price point when you’re looking for top performance, but don’t want to pay the steep premium for the Western Digital RE4.

However, the Hitachi 7K2000 offers an even more compelling price/performance ratio, and the difference is so little that few users are likely to notice.

Get the Western Digital RE4 at OWC, along with their 90-day drive-swap guarantee

See this cart for recommended drives.
