Now this is a good hard drive, i am using it at the minute, and am very happy about it
Connected directly to my eVGA – nVIDIA nForce motherboard 630i/7150, Windows reports the hard disk on Windows experience index as 5.9 (Not bad for a 7200 RPM disk).

Now to experience with this drive.
I have owned it for some time now, and i have used it for some time too.
I like western digital and have been a loyal customer since the 90s, they don’t break down on me like most other brands.
Western digital already released the 2TB green hard drive (Yes, you heard it right two terra bytes), but since this is the black edition (Performance), 1TB is still the maximum you can get from this category.
The hard disk has 32MB cache, and a sustained buffer to disk sustained transfer rate of 106 MB/s, Yes, the B is in capital letter, this is around 1000+ Mbit per second.
the 3 plates/disks and 6 heads (2 per disk one above and one below) make it heavy, and to eutelise more of this the hard disk needs a good processor, Western digital claims it uses a Dual Core Processor. but is the marvell chip
really a dual processor ? Searching the marvell website (marvell.com) yields no result for this processor, Not much is available on the internet about the 88ixxxx processor range…
StableTrac (Motor shaft held at both ends), NoTouch ramp load technology, and Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) are features of the drive according to Western Digital.
