Recent news from WD has it that they've pushed the barrier a notch further with current HDD technology, now on the road to producing HDDs with 160GB platters as well as some other added benefits such as "Ramp Load Technology", a proven technique in mobile-class drives that parks the recording heads when the drive is idle, powered off and spinning up. WD utilizes ramp load in its new desktop products to maximize shock robustness and minimize power consumption, enabling continued leadership in quality and long-term reliability.
