Western Digital unleashes 2TB Hard Disk

wdfcaviargreen_sata321Today Western Digital announced the release of its new 2TB Green Hard Disk. Green means Eco-friendly hard disks. If you still own 1TB or 1.5TB hard disk and think its not enough its time for a massive upgrade. These new hard disks come with a 32MB Cache and a four platter design. Each platter at the size of 500GB each and arreal density is up to 400GB/inch2. This hard disk is already available at selected distributors. The retail model is WD20EADS, you can get it from NewEgg for $299.

The Green hard disk series from Western Digital are supposed to a bit less performing disks but gives you lower operating temperatures and quieter decibel levels. I personally own a 640GB Green, I have to admit that I can see no visible drop in performance compared to other hard disks from WD. But yes benchmarks prove me wrong.

2TB? Do you really need that much space ? unless of course if you store a lot of porn. Otherwise I don’t think 2TB hard disks find any conventional use for homes. I myself am struggling to fill up my 640GB Hard disk.
