SATA 6Gb/s Drives
WD is leading the way with a full lineup of SATA 6 Gb/s drives
Over the years the industry has increased bus bandwidth from PATA through SATA 1.5 Gb/s and SATA 3 Gb/s to keep up with the demand for higher transfer rates. The next evolution of bus bandwidth has now been achieved with the introduction of SATA 6 Gb/s, (SATA 3.0). We've added a SATA 6 Gb/s interface to our award-winning WD Caviar Blue, Green, and Black desktop hard drives in capacities from 250 GB - 3 TB. This transition to a SATA 6 Gb/s interface aligns with the introduction of SATA 6 Gb/s-supporting chip sets and motherboards coming to the market.
These drives are built utilizing the tried and true proven technology of the original award-winning WD Caviar 3.5-inch hard drives for desktop computers.
Built to the highest standards of quality and reliability, these drives offer features and capacity at an affordable price.
With SATA 6.0Gb/s interfaces, and cache sizes up to 32 MB, this series of drives offer a full range of performance features.
We offer WD Caviar Green drives with capacities from 500GB because you can never have too much storage space.
Ultra cool and quiet.
Keeping the drive cool enhances reliability. WD continues to develop new and innovative ways to keep drives cool while they are operating which helps protect the drive and the data stored on it.
We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
