Manufacturer's Part Number: WD5002ABYS
Western Digital Caviar RE3 WD5002ABYS 500GB 7.2K Enterprise SATA Hard Drive - Brand New
Spindle Speed: 7,200RPM
Interface Type: SATA
Disk Size: 3.5inx1.0in LFF Hard Drive
Sustained Throughput (MBps):
Average Seek Time (read/write ms):
Electrical Interface Speed: SATA 300 - 3.0Gbps
On-Board Cache: 16MB
WD RE3 drives combine up to 32 MB cache with SATA 3 Gb/s transfer rate for lightning-fast performance in demanding server and storage applications. Technologically advanced acoustics minimize noise. Cool drive operation and enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it.
|Massive capacity - WD RE3 Enterprise SATA drives are available in capacities up to 1 TB. |
Dual processor - Twice the processing power results in a 20% performance improvement over the previous generation.
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.
RAFF™ - Our fourth generation RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time for up to a 60% performance improvement in high vibration environments over the previous generation of drives.
IntelliSeek™ - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
Multi-axis shock sensor - Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data.
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) - Prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Third generation dynamic fly height - Each read-write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.
Thermal extended burn-in test - Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation.
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.
Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - WD RE3 drives utilize PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density, reliability, and design margin.
Ideal for servers, storage arrays, video surveillance, and other demanding write-intensive applications.
This drive is compatible with any of our 3.5" SATA drive trays and any computer / server that uses SATA drives.
