Caviar Black and RE4
Western Digital is now officially shipping its fastest 2TB drives to date, the Caviar Black and RE4.
WD's green flavoured Caviar has been around for quite a while now, but like car engines, HDDs that spin at just 5400rpm just don't do the trick for some users. Both new drives feature 64MB of cache, dual processor and dual actuator technology and 3Gbps SATA.
The enterprise oriented RE4 boasts a higher MTBF of 1.2 million hours and a few other features for business users. Unfortunately, the $299 price for the Caviar Black isn't what we'd callaffordable.
