The Western Digital RE3 hard drives are high performance enterprise SATA drives designed specifically for business-critical applications. These drives combine high speed cache with SATA 3 Gb/s transfer rate for lightning-fast performance in demanding server and storage applications. Technologically advanced acoustics minimize noise. Cool drive operation and enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it. Pick the drive that suits your needs with the confidence in knowing that all WD RE3 drives are built to the highest standards of quality and reliability.
High PerformanceFeaturing dual processor, high speed cache and SATA 3Gbps interface, the WD RE3 internal hard drives deliver solid performance for demanding server and storage applications.
RAFF TechnologyThe 4th generation RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration simultaneously, in real time for up to a 60% performance improvement in high vibration environments over the previous generation of drives.
RAID-Specific, Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER)Boasting Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER) technology, the WD RE3 hard drives can effectively prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Multi-Axis Shock SensorPowered by multi-axis shock sensor, the WD RE3 hard drives can automatically detect subtle shock events and compensate to protect the data.
Third Generation Dynamic Fly HeightEach read-write head's fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.

Average Seek Time
Third generation dynamic fly height - Each read-write head's fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability. Thermal extended burn-in test - Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation. 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. Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - WD RE3 drives utilize PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density.
