Western Digital Caviar Black 3.5in 500GB SATA III 6 Gb/s Internal Desktop Hard Drives, 7200RPM, 64MB Cache, Maximum Performance for Power Computing, P/N: WD5003AZEX
WD Caviar Black drives combine a high performance electronics architecture with a rock solid mechanical architecture to deliver the perfect storage solution for your
fully-loaded PC or maxed out gaming machine. Cool drive operation, no-touch head technology, leading-edge vibration protection ensure enhanced reliability.
- 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 a piezoelectric motor to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy. (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only)
The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce
system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate
tracking, during read and write operations. (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only)
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.
- High Performance Electronics Architecture
Twice the processing power to maximize performance.
Bigger, faster cache of up to 64 MB means faster performance.
- Massive Capacity
WD Caviar Black SATA drives are available in capacities up to 2 TB.
We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
