Western Digital Caviar Black 4TB review
15 December 2012
Excerpt: Western Digital has been making 4TB enterprise grade hard disks for a while, but the Caviar Black 4TB, is firmly aimed at home users. It comes with a reassuring five year warranty, which you'd hope for if you're shelling out this much on a hard disk. The disk’s performance in our throughput tests proved to be excellent, which again is much what you'd hope for from a high-end SATA3 disk with a 7,200rpm spin speed.
Summary: If you need 2TB of storage but don't want to sacrifice performance, Western Digital's Caviar Black (WD2001FASS) might be for you. This SATA II 3.5in internal hard drive lacks the power-saving features of the company's GreenPower drives but provides a faster spin speed and better overall performance.
