Western Digital Caviar WD1200BB
21 May 2008
Conclusion: The Caviar WD1200BB reached a temperature of 45.5 °C after our standard IOMeter test run. This is slightly higher than that of the Caviar WD1000BB (44.8 °C), but decidedly lower than that of the Maxtor DiamondMax Plus D740X (46.5 °C). Subjectively speaking, while certainly not as quiet as the Barracuda IV (the quietest 7200RPM unit we've come across), the Caviar WD1200BB is nonetheless quiet and unobstrusive, even during IOMeter's heavy seeks.
