Western Digital Caviar GP
24 December 2007
Summary: As expected, though, the drive’s emphasis on power-saving costs it a little bit in the speed department. Although improved areal density over Hitachi’s 7K1000 helps bridge the gap between the two drives, the Caviar GP still falls short of the 7K1000’s impressive read speeds. Of the three terabyte drives we’ve tested, the Caviar GP is the slowest by far.
Pros: You save electricity with this drive, which makes you feel like an environmentally conscious all-star.
Cons: You really aren’t saving that much energy, and you’re sacrificing quite a bit of speed.
