WD VelociRaptor drives offer an unmatched combination of high performance and high reliability, perfect for workstations, high end video and photo editing, low end servers and performance enthusiasts’ systems. Comes with a 3.5-inch mounting frame for easy installation into today's high performance systems and chassis. Ultra fast - Designed around a 10,000 RPM spin speed, these SATA 6 Gb/s drives include a 64 MB cache and deliver the ultimate performance for photo and video editing. Rock-solid reliability - With 1.4 million hours MTBF, these drives have the highest available reliability rating on a high capacity SATA drive. High capacity - State of the art technology delivers a balance of high performance and high capacity perfect for data intensive workloads that require large amounts of storage such as video editing, 3D rendering and scientific modeling. Ultra cool operation - Consumes less idle power and uses similar active power as the previous generation WD VelociRaptor, while offering double the capacity and higher performance. Advanced Format (AF) - Technology adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities. IcePack mounting frame - The 2.5-inch WD VelociRaptor is enclosed in a backplane ready 3.5-inch enterprise class mounting frame with a built in heat sink that keeps this powerful little drive extra cool when installed in high performance desktop chassis. Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFFTM) - Optimizes operation and performance when the drives are used in vibration prone, multi drive chassis. 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. Pre-emptive Wear Leveling (PWL) - Ensures reliability for applications that perform a high incidence of read/write operations at the same physical location on the disk. Environmentally conscious - In addition to being ROHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor is also a halogen free design.
