Physical Spec

Form Factor


Industry's highest capacity nearline drive - WD RE SAS hard drives are available in capacities ranging from 1 TB to 4 TB to suit even the most demanding storage needs.

Highest performance for business-critical applications - WD RE delivers 6 Gb/s transfer rates, sustained sequential data rates of 182 MB/s and high random I/O rates.

Designed for quality and reliability - With a field-tested 1.4 million hour MTBF,
this high performance drive delivers the highest level of reliability for 24x7
operation in up to 100% duty cycle applications.

Dual port, full duplex connectivity - Offers higher reliability, performance and data availability by eliminating single points of failure, designed for leading business-critical Enterprise topologies.

Environmentally conscious - In addition to being RoHS compliant, WD RE is built with halogen-reduced components.

NoTouchramp 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.

Dual stage 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.

Vibration Protection - Enhanced RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in high vibration environments over the previous generation of drives.

Multi-axis shock sensor - Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data.

Dynamic fly height technology - Each read-write head's fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.

Ultra compatible

1 out of 5 eggsFIrmware Update Available!

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD3001FYYG 3TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This is more of a public service announcement.

There is a new firmware VR07 for this drive that replaces VR02 and has a lot of bug fixes. It's not listed anywhere on WD's website, and they insisted that it did not exist over multiple phone calls.

Models affected:

Cons: WD support is not well. They should really list firmware updates on their website or have some record of them. This update has existed since before June 1, 2013, and still... no mention of it anywhere.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat server drives

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD3001FYYG 3TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good performing drives! Am using 6 on an HP P410 in raid 5 and get very good performance. So far no failures and none were DOA.

SAS is worth the few extra $$ since the error rate is 10^15 instead of 10^14 with SATA so it is a little less likely to encounter an uncorrectable error during a rebuild. (All drives do fail eventually...)

Cons: cost??
