Today we are comparing the Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB desktop drive to a couple of other 3.5 inch drives that are either widely used in the industry or previously reviewed here at TweakTown.

All of the drives tested were performed on the listed system under identical conditions to ensure true apples to apples performance results for comparison. The most obvious competitor to the WDC Caviar Green 2TB drive comes from the Seagate 1.5TB 7200.11 drive that costs 129.00 USD at Newegg at the time of writing.
