Product Features

The original
These drives are built utilizing the 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.

Cool operation
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™ to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.

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.

Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
