WD Caviar Green (3TB)

PC Magazine
28 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Western Digital obliterates all heretofore known storage boundaries with its 3TB Caviar Green, the largest on the planet. But this internal hard drive's platters are piled with caveats.
  • Pros: Highest-capacity hard drive on the market.
  • Cons: Slow for a 3.5-inch drive. Will not work in Windows XP systems. May require an adapter card. Cannot be used as a boot drive on most PCs.

3TB Western Digital Caviar Green Review

maximum pc
6 December 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s been nearly two years since we saw the first 2TB drives hit the market. You’d think we would have gotten 3TB drives months ago. It’s not that hard, is it? Turns out, it’s pretty complicated. We’ll get into all that in a second, but in the meantime, here’s what you need to know: Western Digital’s new 3TB Caviar Green drive is the first internal bootable 3TB drive to hit the market.
  • Pros: First bootable 3TB drive; free two-port 6Gb/s HBA; 90MB/s+ sequential speeds.
  • Cons: Mobo UEFI support still lacking; lags behind 2TB drives in some tests.

  • Summary: Despite the potential incompatibilities with older systems, this drive rocks. It’s the most performance we’ve seen out of the Green Drive series to date. The low power means that it will work nicely in devices like NASs and external enclosures that are designed to have a low energy footprint. These drives will also work quite nicely in datacenters looking to relatively cheaply upgrade their storage capabilities.

Western Digital's Caviar Green 3TB hard drive

28 October 2010
  • Summary: There's something to be said for being the first hard drive maker to offer an internal model with three terabytes of total capacity. So, there, I said it. The fact is that arbitrary milestones aren't that important, and this one in particular is complicated by the compatibility issues that arise when one moves beyond 2.19TB.

  • Conclusion: Conclusions 3TB of storage, it beggars belief that in just over 2 years we have seen such huge advancements and goes to show just how much R & D is going on within the cloisters of Western Digital's HQ.  If only just....we could.... It has to be said that this drive has surpassed its predecessor with exceptional  flying colours.   The results shown above paint a picture that saves a thousand words.

Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB Hard Drive Review

Hardware Canucks
29 December 2010
  • Conclusion: On the performance front this drive may not win any speed contests against products boasting faster rotational speeds….but then again it wasn’t meant to. The Caviar Green 3TB is meant to be a low power, low noise, high capacity product and it hits every one of those points. That being said, Western Digital has been able to leverage a number of unique design features to make this 5400 RPM monster as fast as some older 7200 RPM drives.
  • Cons: - While a good value it still is a lot of money for one drive, - Not recommended for an OS drive. Rather, wait for the Black version, - Only a 3 year warranty
