 26.01.2006   Western Digital Caviar SE16 500GB HD SATA
 

LAKE FOREST, Calif. - Jan. 26, 2006 - Western Digital Corp. (NYSE: WDC) today announced it is shipping its new high-capacity 500 GB Serial ATA (SATA) WD Caviar SE16 desktop-class hard drives. Providing a half terabyte of capacity for data-intensive applications such as graphic design, digital video editing, personal video recorders and advanced business computing, WD Caviar SE16 500 GB drives also deliver high 7,200 RPM performance with 300 MB/s transfer rate, 16 MB cache and Native Command Queuing (NCQ).

"The WD Caviar family of hard drives delivers the reliability and performance that customers expect from WD," said Don Bennett, WD vice president and general manager of desktop storage. "The extreme capacity and high performance of this drive address a variety of demanding applications and expand WD's portfolio of storage products. From 6 to 500 GB, WD offers a diverse range of hard drives to meet our customers' wide-ranging storage needs."

WD Caviar SE16 500 GB Pricing and Availability

WD Caviar SE16 500 GB (model WD5000KS) hard drives may be ordered on the company's online store (www.westerndigital.com) for $349.99 USD. Customers can currently take advantage of free standard shipping on orders of more than $200.00.

Cool Drives and Enhanced Reliability

Heat is a major contributor to hard drive wear and cool drive operating temperatures help increase long-term drive reliability. WD hard drives are designed to have the lowest power consumption of any high-capacity desktop-class hard drive.

Lowering the drives' power consumption means the operating temperature of WD Caviar drives is much cooler which provides for enhanced drive reliability. Cool drives are increasingly important for today's multi-drive and small-form-factor systems.

Whisper Quiet

Today's PCs, digital video recorders and gaming machines are increasingly operated in environments where noise is less tolerated. WD reduced WD Caviar drive noise levels to be virtually imperceptible to the human ear in home and business environments with its WhisperDrive technology, which features a highly efficient power driver design. To reduce seek noise, SoftSeek technology streamlines read/write seeking algorithms, resulting in the drive operating more efficiently when accessing and writing data.
