Specifications



WD Caviar SE16 drives combine 16 MB cache with 3 Gb/s transfer rate for lightning-fast performance in demanding desktop and workstation applications. Technologically advanced acoustics minimize noise and cool drive operation and enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it.

Key Features



Top performance for Windows Vista - WD Caviar SE16 SATA and EIDE drives are certified for Windows Vista and are top performers on the Windows Vista Experience Index.

16 MB Cache - Bigger cache means faster performance. A massive 16 MB cache combined with advanced acoustic and power-reducing technologies make these ultra-fast drives the perfect solution for the fully loaded PC.

Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - The latest generation of WD Caviar SE16 drives employs PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density.

IntelliSeek™ - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.

SecurePark™ - Parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off.  This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long term reliability due to less head wear, and improved non- operational shock tolerance.

StableTrac™ - The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations.
(750 GB only)

Ideal For

Designed for use in the fastest PCs on the market, including high-performance business computers and multimedia or gaming systems. Perfect for Windows Vista.

Said to be one of the best hard drive out there and I believe it.

It is pretty fast (due to its conception) and really quiet.

Being made by Western Digital seals the deal.

Terrible customer service - unalbe to get a hold of this company. I was missing an item that I ordered and after a week I tried to contact them and I was put on hold for 15 minutes before they hung up on me, three times. Instant message customer service did not reply after two days. Finally emailed customer services. Found out that I had to reorder different item and spend more money because the item was out of stock. No one contacted me to tell me that the item was out of stock and discontinued. The email said "sorry for the inconvienance" and offered no help to get me a product. I then asked them to give me another product of equal value and again I got an email that said "sorry for the inconvienence". I eventually got a refund, but now I have to spend more money and wait another week for the product to come in. I wasted 2 weeks trying to get some service and I got nothing. Good products at good prices but the customer service is very bad. I would not recommend this company on its customer service. Good luck if you have any problems.
