Specifications, Pricing and Availability
With three new models already shipping Western Digital is making one last push with a pure mechanical HDD for enthusiasts.
We've read reports of Western Digital experimenting with hybrid storage behind the scenes, but Western Digital didn't enter that market with this release. What they did do is increase the cache to 64MB, a large amount even by today's standards. The SATA interface is also 6Gbps, something that helps increase the performance of small cache hits.
Newegg already lists the new models as available on their site. The 1TB model we are looking at today sells for $329.99, the 500GB model for $229.99 and the 256GB model for $169.99.
Western Digital pairs these drives with a full five year warranty which is in line with enterprise specific products. This is a big selling point as mechanical drive makers have moved warranty lengths for consumer products down to an average of one to two years.
