Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB Hard Disk

The Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB




Western Digital sends their media samples in an OEM package, but we have all seen their retail packaging on the shelves of retail stores.


All of the information found on the drive is located on the top cover sticker. Here we see in large letters that the drive is a 2TB model that uses a SATA interface and has 64MB of cache.




All of the components mounted to the PCB face toward the inside of the drive which helps protect them from accidental abuse (first hand experience here). This gives us little to talk about, but I would rather have a drive that is more robust instead of having something to point to.




A quick glance at the side of the drive shows that all of the standard mounting holes are present.




The Caviar Black also has the power and data ports where they should be. Let's get to the testing.
