4.0TB WD Black Performance Desktop Hard Drive

3.5-Inch | SATA 6.0Gb/s | 7200RPM | 128MB Cache
Inspiring Performance. Demanding Capacity.
Performance for power users
WD Black™ performance storage is designed to enhance your PC experience across heavier computing tasks whether you are a digital artist, video editor, photographer, or gamer. Available with an impressive 128MB of DRAM cache, the WD Black PC drive is optimized for drive performance so you can spend more time experiencing the things you love most. Enhance your PC's performance even further when you combine a WD Black drive with an SSD for a dual drive con guration, allowing you to benefit from the additional caching of your operating system onto the SSD for increased performance.
For Creative Professionals
When it comes to storing your creativity and entire digital portfolio, look no further than WD Black performance storage for your best solution. Use the WD Black
drive for storing your large multimedia files of photos, videos, games or applications and programs because with a WD Black drive, you get the best combination of speed, capacity and large cache sizes.
For Gamers
The WD Black drive is the perfect storage solution for your gaming machine by offering large capacities to store your game's downloadable content (DLC), large cache sizes, and it is the perfect compliment for maximum system performance when combined with an SSD. The WD Black drive also includes StableTracTM Technology (2TB and larger models) for more accurate data tracking and help to reduce any impact due to vibrations from additional gaming hardware.
Increased Reliability
The WD Black drive is equipped with StableTrac Technology (2TB and larger models) by securing the motor shaft inside to increase reliability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, the WD Black drive results in more accurate tracking in a particular sector during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.
Increased DRAM cache
The WD Black drive delivers high-speed transfer speeds and read rates of your files with impressive cache sizes of up to 128MB of DRAM on the high capacity models. WD's Dynamic Cache Technology improves caching algorithms in real time to allocate and optimize cache between reads and writes. This movement of cache for read data helps to reduce congestion and increase overall performance.
Efficient dual processing
When it comes to processing power, more is always better especially for loading games or large multimedia files. The WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers twice the processing capability as a single- core processor to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.
Industry-leading 5-year limited warranty
WD Black hard drives pass more strenuous and aggressive internal testing over a longer period of time, which is why the WD Black drive is backed by an industry-leading 5-year warranty.

Rating: 5/5 I have bought a ton of these for work and home February 18, 2018 I've been sticking with the 4TB Caviar Black for years. I've got 8 of them in my two UWC RAIDS at work (working drive and backup) and I've bought more for rotating vault storage; accessing them via a Voyager Q dock. I also have around a half dozen that I bought for my home office, both for internals on my Mac tower and for use in a dock. These drives run hot, so if you are keeping them in storage cases, let them cool down a bit before popping them into the boxes.
