WESTERN DIGITAL WD1001FALS 1TB 32M 7200RPM SATA2 Caviar Black Hard drive $149+$13 ship @ Megaware

4 July 2009

Looks to be cheapest for this drive at present.

Dual processor - Twice the processing power to maximize performance.

32 MB cache - Bigger, faster cache means faster performance.
Rock Solid Mechanical Architecture

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.

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.
5 Year Limited Warranty

    i bought one of these recently for an audio/video scratch drive... good solid performer, i get sequential reads topping out at over 115MB/s over eSATA to my MacBook Pro...

    btw, there is one cheaper price on staticice (PLE @ $145), but PLE is only offering a 1 year warranty instead of the full 5 years manufacturers warranty, so i would avoid them...

    Hrm, looking to buy an external hard disc drive at the moment, but this one comes without an external casing and I need to buy that as an extra, right?
  • smackus
    yes, you'll need an external case for it.

What do you think?
