This 500GB drive also features a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, a 64MB cache to help ensure uninterrupted data transfer, a sustained data transfer rate of up to 150 MB/s, and a dual-core processor for improved performance. Additionally, this drive is built with features to help ensure it will have a strong operational life, with 300,000 load/unload cycles, <1 in 1014 non-recoverable errors per bits read, StableTrac technology, and Dynamic Cache technology.

The 500GB Black 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal HDD is lightweight and energy efficient, weighing 0.95 lb and consuming an average of 6.8W during read/write operations.

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.
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.
