Detailed Description

Ultra-fast performance and cool, quiet function distinguish this 500GB Western Digital Caviar SE16. The immense capacity and fast seek time make this drive ideal for high-demand data retrieval situations, as well as handily filling multimedia and gaming needs. The integrated Data Lifeguard™, Data Lifeguard Tools™ and Shock Guard™ technology ensure your data is safe under the most demanding circumstances, and provides ongoing diagnoses and correction of possible problems.

A 16MB cache and 300MB transfer rate give you lightning fast writing and retrieval, and help the drive consume less power, making it safer and longer-lasting. WD has also gone to a great deal of effort to reduce vibration and operation noise, producing one of the quietest large drives on the market, perfect for situations where noise is an issue. Add that to its capacity and speed, this is a great high-capacity drive for your money.
