The Western Digital Caviar SE hard drive gives you 500GB of storage in a package that is quiet, fast, and runs cooler than most hard drives on the market. Even at a rotational speed of 7,200 RPM the drive can maintain low operating temperatures and low power consumption. The 16 MB buffer also provides high performance caching for faster speeds and improved system functions.
To make drive selection simple, we've gathered all our popular WD Caviar SE16, WD Caviar SE, and WD Caviar drives under one umbrella we call WD Caviar Blue. Built to Western Digital's awarding winning quality standards, these drives are available in a full range of performance features.


  • EIDE - Enhanced integrated drive electronics (EIDE), also called Parallel ATA (PATA), hard drives have been the standard in the computer industry for more than 10 years.
  • Reliability - We understand the importance of your data, and we are committed to protecting that data with exceptionally reliable products, advanced data protection technology and superior customer support.
  • Cool - Keeping the drive cool enhances reliability. WD continues to develop new and innovative ways to keep drives cool while they are operating.
  • Quiet - The technology that Tom's Hardware Guide called "very fast and nearly silent" is used throughout this family of drives. Our WhisperDrive?technology minimizes noise to levels near the threshold of human hearing. To cut seek noise, SoftSeek?technology streamlines read/write seeking algorithms, resulting in more efficient 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. (Available on 120 GB capacities and above)
  • Compatible - 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 systemss.
