General Features

For Creative Professionals

When it comes to storing your creativity and digital portfolio, WD Black drives can be used to store large multimedia files that contain photos, videos, games, or applications and programs. With a WD Black drive, you get a combination of speed, capacity, and large cache sizes.

For Gamers

WD Black drives are also suited for gaming machines by offering large capacities to store a game's downloadable content (DLC) and large cache sizes, as well as helping to further maximize system performance when paired with an SSD. WD Black drives also include StableTrac technology for more accurate data tracking and to help reduce any impact due to vibrations for additional gaming hardware.

Increased Reliability

This WD Black drive is equipped with StableTrack technology by securing the motor shaft inside to increase stability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, the drive is more accurate in tracking particular sectors during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.

Increased DRAM Cache

This WD Black drive delivers high transfer speeds and read rates of your files with a 64MB DRAM cache. WD's Dynamic Cache technology improves caching algorithms in real time to allocate and optimize the cache between reads and writes. This movement of cache for read data helps to reduce congestion and increase overall performance.

Dual Processing

When it comes to processing power, more is always better, especially for loading games and large multimedia files. This WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers increased processing capabilities as compared to a single-core processor, helping to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.

question

What is the difference between the WD Black 3.5 SATA OEM Internal Hard Drive and Performance Caviar Black HDD Retail Kit...?
Asked by: Nicholas
When I was looking for a disk drive two years ago, based on reviews in the PC magazines and on-line tech sites, I decided the (13)WD 3TB WD Black 3.5 SATA OEM Internal Hard DriveB&amp;H # WEWD3003FZEX MFR # WD3003FZEX was the right one for me. This drive does not come in a retail kit and the specs are a little better than the 2 tb and 4 tb versions. The drive is shipped in a protective bag in a well packed B&amp;H box. You wil need to purchase mounting screws and a sata 6 cable separately, If you need a SATA cable, there are many configurations so choose the best one for your PC. Instructions on installing the drive are available on the WD site. Your computer manufacturer should also have instructions on how to install an additional drive.
