Not only has the newest Western Digital Caviar drive got more storage capacity than a dog’s brain, the 2TB hard drive has also been designed to be environmentally sound, with WD suggesting it consumes 4-5 watts less energy than competing HDs.
Coming with a 32MB cache and a SATA-II interface for hooking it into your PC, the drive’s appearing for pre-order right now. One bewilderingly in-depth and unnecessarily lengthy six page review can be summarised as follows: 8/10. Very good. Well worth it if money’s no object and your PC’s only got one HD bay.
The price? As low as a relatively decent £206, if you shop about a bit. Bloody good for a gadget that only existed in geek storage fantasy world six months ago.
