DetailsMaximum performance. Dual processor technology, up to 64 MB cache and SATA 3 Gb/s or 6 Gb/s interface takes everything we know about 7200 RPM performance and turns it on its ear. No compromises. High performance, high capacity, best-in-class reliability, and cutting edge technology make up WD Caviar Black, the ideal drive for those who demand only the best. Award winning. This 7200 RPM speedster is at the top of its class when it comes to performance and reliability benchmarks. 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. Interface - WD Caviar Black hard drives are offered with a SATA 6 Gb/s or a SATA 3 Gb/s interface. Rock Solid Mechanical Architecture. Dual actuator technology - A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positionalaccuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventionalelectromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune thehead positioning to a higher degree of accuracy. (1.5 TB and 2 TB only) StableTrac - The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilizeplatters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations.

NoTouch ramp load technology - The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantlyless 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 CompatibilityLab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems. Ideal for: Power computing applications such as multimedia, video and photo editing, and maxed out gaming computers.
