Product Features
Rock Solid Mechanical Architecture
Dual actuator technology A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses a piezoelectric motor to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy. (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only) 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. (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only) 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.

High Performance Electronics Architecture
Dual processor — Twice the processing power to maximize performance. Colossal cache — Bigger, faster cache of up to 64 MB means faster performance.

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 systems.

Massive Capacity
WD Caviar Black SATA drives are available in capacities up to 2 TB.

5-year limited warranty

Applications
Power computing applications such as multimedia, video and photo editing, and maxed out gaming computers. Desktop / Consumer RAID Environments - WD Caviar Black Hard Drives are tested and recommended for use in consumer-type RAID applications (RAID-0 / RAID-1).
- Business Critical RAID Environments – WD Caviar Black Hard Drives are not recommended for and are not warranted for use in RAID environments utilizing Enterprise HBAs and/or expanders and in multi-bay chassis, as they are not designed for, nor tested in, these specific types of RAID applications. For all Business Critical RAID applications, please consider WD’s Enterprise Hard Drives that are specifically designed with RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER), are tested extensively in 24x7 RAID applications, and include features like enhanced RAFF technology and thermal extended burn-in testing.
