The 3TB WD Caviar Black 3.5" SATA OEM Internal Hard Drive from WD is designed for enthusiasts and creative professionals looking for leading-edge performance. This 3.5-inch desktop drive is perfect for high-performance applications like photo and video editing, gaming and power PCs. With a 3TB storage capacity, SATA interface and transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps, it is ideal for demanding applications that require high performance. The Caviar Black 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. Offering a 5-year limited warranty, the Caviar Black is also tested rigorously to ensure compatibility with most systems.

Maximum Performance
Sophisticated performance-enhancing features deliver the speed you need for demanding applications like photo and video editing and Internet gaming. The Caviar Black offers high performance, high capacity, high reliability and cutting-edge technology, which makes it ideal for those who demand only the best.
Dual Processor
The Caviar Black features a dual processor that offers twice the processing power to maximize performance.
Dynamic Cache
WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real-time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there's an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.
Rock Solid Mechanical Architecture
Enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it.
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media, ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
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 which enables consistently higher performance.
IntelliSeek Technology
The 3.5" internal hard drive features IntelliSeek technology which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
Upgrading Your Drive is Easy
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.
Data Lifeguard
The drive features Data Lifeguard embedded error detection and repair features that automatically detect, isolate and repair problem areas which may develop due to extended use of the hard drive.
Tested for Compatibility
Rigorous tests are performed on systems and platforms to ensure that the drives are compatible with all systems.
High Quality and Reliability - The WD Advantage
The products are tested through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T) prior to launch. This testing ensures that these products consistently meet high quality and reliability standards. Moreover, a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 useful articles as well as helpful software and utilities is also available. WD's customer support lines have longer operational hours to ensure timely support. You can access the WD Support site for additional details.
Wide Usage
All WD Black hard drives are tested and recommended for use in PCs, high-performance workstations and notebook computers, power computing applications, such as video and photo editing, as well as maxed out gaming computers* 1
