The 1TB WD Caviar Blue 3.5" SATA Desktop OEM Internal Hard Drive from WD is built to meet high standards of quality and reliability. It features ample storage, quiet operation and low power consumption, ideal for your everyday computing needs. With a 1TB storage capacity, SATA interface and transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps, it is ideal for demanding desktop applications that require high performance. The Caviar Blue uses NoTouch Ramp Load technology, which prevents the recording heads from resting on the disk during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This results in a more reliable drive due to the limited head wear. The Caviar Blue has also been tested rigorously to ensure compatibility with most systems.

Cool Operation
The hard drive has been engineered for cool operation, this helps protect the drive and the data stored on it.
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
IntelliSeek Technology
The 3.5" internal hard drive features IntelliSeek technology which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.

WD Acronis True Image, available as a free download on the WD Support site, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to receive the benefits of a new drive.
