Features
 
 
Interface:
SATA 6 Gb/s, SATA 3 Gb/s
 
Capacity:
500 GB - 2 TB
 
Maximum 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.
 
 
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.
 
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.
 
 
Rock Solid Mechanical Architecture.
Dual actuator technology - A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head 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 stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations. (1.5 TB and 2 TB only) View demo

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.
 
5-year limited warranty.

As used for storage capacity, one megabyte (MB) = one million bytes, one gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes, and one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. As used for buffer or cache, one megabyte (MB) = 1,048,576 bytes. As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second, megabit per second (Mb/s) = one million bits per second, and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second.
