The 2TB Gold 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Datacenter HDD from WD delivers 2TB of storage capacity for high-availability servers and storage arrays. This 3.5" drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 128MB cache, and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, all of which help to ensure a sustained rate of up to 200 MB/s. It comes armed with HelioSeal Helium technology that enables up to 26 percent lower power consumption when compared to a standard drive. With an error tolerance of <1 in 1015, an MTBF of 2.0 million hours, an AFR of 0.44%, it is well suited for small- to medium-scale enterprise environments that require a durable and reliable storage drive. In addition to the drive's performance and reliability features, Western Digital offers a 24/7 premium support line and includes Acronis True Image WD Edition cloning software.

Workload Capability
Delivering both performance and reliability to any datacenter environment, WD Gold hard drives are designed to handle workloads up to 550TB per year.
Reliability
With a MTBF of up to 2.0 million hours, WD Gold hard drives deliver reliability and durability for yearly operation (24x7x365) within demanding storage environments.
Disk Utilities and Migration Tools
Acronis True Image WD Edition can clone drives as well as backup your operating system, applications, settings, and all of your data, while also having the ability to wipe any data you no longer need securely. You can quickly and easily deploy a new hard drive to your PC or laptop and automatically migrate your operating system, applications, and all of your important data.
RAID-Specific, Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER)
Reduces the drive's fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Extended Thermal Burn-in Test
Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation.
Dynamic Fly Height and Dual Actuators
A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track. The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.

    2TB Gold 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Datacenter HDD is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WD Golds - so far so good. First of all, let me start with stating that I'm not affiliated with WD or BHPHOTO in any way or form, nor do I work in IT dept so all of the below is based on my personal experience. I'm though a geek by nature, so I naturally tempted to get to the bottom of things.... Now, I do not have much of an experience with that specific WD Gold generation since I've just got them few weeks ago, but I do have quite some with WD RE drives in general (newer version of which WD Golds are). Let me also mention that some of the RE drives I have have uptime approaching 10 years(!!)... What can I tell - they have always been one of the best drives at a time I was buying them. Quiet, fast, cold and reliable. Word of caution - they are designed for a enterprise use, specifically highly optimized for a random writes and have TLER (time-limited-error-recovery: basically in case of an error drive would give up much earlier trying retrieving the data as it assumes it is a part of some kind of a RAID providing redundancy) which makes them not so good for a desktop use - if you are looking for a fast desktop drive WD Black probably would be a better choice. Also, the way I see it - all drives fail, it's not a question of if, it's a question of when. And this is where WD REs shine - 5years vs industry standard 3 years of a warranty most of other drives have. So far my experience with RMA'ing WD RE drives was exceptional - few clicks and replacement is on the way (YMMV in this regard, I've read some nightmare stories on other retailers review boards). What I also discovered quite recently - enterprise WD drives generation-to-generation have exactly the same sector count given the capacity. I think this is no coincidence - what WD is likely trying to achieve is for newer drives to be a drop-in replacement for an older versions, which is _extremely_ handy in practice, believe me (I already had to replace few aging drives which started giving errors so my controller was kicking them out of the RAID). Regarding the capacity - while one can be tempted to go overboard, keep in mind that larger drives are (1) much more expensive time wise to deal with in case if something goes wrong - taking image of a 2Tb drive is a matter of 4.5 hours give or take (2) likely to be more noisy and power hungry (take a look at a specs for WD Golds of 4 and 6Tb - they really stand out). So chose wisely. Also pay attention to the physical sector size - most of the larger drives would have 4k physical sectors (may or may not be an issue given your specific workload you are anticipating). For me personally 2Tb happens to be a sweet-spot at the moment, obviously your situation is likely to be quite different from mine... To summarize - would I recommend WD Golds? Absolutely - I'm unaware of a better drive given the purpose. Would I buy from BHPHOTO - absolutely (very reasonable pricing, good packaging and fast shipment - what else one would need?), in fact I'm going to order few more of these babies to replace aging drives in my mission critical RAID unit and reuse older ones in a cloud backup staging area unit. P.S. Did I ever mention that no RAID is a substitution for a backup?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've always used Caviar drives I like the 2 million hour MTBF. I've always been pleased with WD Caviars.
