The Western Digital Caviar SE delivers outstanding performance with a 7200RPM spindle speed and SATA 300 MB/s interface. SUch speed gives you a cold start in only about 9 seconds. 80GB gives you room to store all manner of possible programs and applications. The hard drive has an 8MB buffer, maximizing data transfer from buffer to host at 3.0 GB/s, and from buffer to disk at 748Mbits/s. The minimal non-recoverable error rate of 1 in 1014 and start/stop cycles make this disk remarkably reliable.
Cool operation results in the highest reliability, even in intensely hot environments such as digital video recorders. That's why these, the coolest on the market, are the drives of choice for the world's leading consumer electronics and PC manufacturers. With wide compatability, exquisite performance and solid reliability, WD gives us another great offering to bring to you!
