SATA 6 Gb/s interface - Twice the interface speed with backwards compatibility to legacy SATA standards.

Dual processor - Twice the processing power to maximize performance.

Dynamic Cache - WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there's an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.

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.

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 which enables consistently higher performance.

4 out of 5 eggsQuality Drive

Pros: what can i say, its a WD drive, a company famous for reliable hard drives with a long life span. its pretty quick and large enough to last a few years with daily use, and would gladly pick up another one once this one fills.

Cons: I only have one complaint about the drive and it is that is it very loud, it is by far the loudest component in my rig when it is writing (i can hear it even with headphones on) when it shouldn't be considering i have 4 fans (not including the cpu cooler) as well as a R9 270 with 2 additional fans that i pretty much always keep busy. Its a bit of a minor grumble, but i will knock one egg off of it because I expected better from WD on a hard drive that they are selling for 200+$
