Hard disk drives are today\'s fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:\
\
- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!\
\
- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.\
\
- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

Western Digital Caviar RE 320GB 320GB EIDE/ATA internal hard drive:
The official marketing text of Western Digital Caviar RE 320GB 320GB EIDE/ATA internal hard drive as supplied by the manufacturer
Cool-running, quiet operation, superior performance and industry-leading reliability make these next-generation WD Caviar SE drives the perfect hard drives for desktop and enterprise storage.

Product Benefits

Fast -- WD, the first to introduce an 8 MB buffer, has advanced the caching algorithms of this new and improved Caviar family of hard drives, resulting in next-generation high performance – performance that matches the speed of most 16 MB cache drives.

Cool-running – Heat is a major contributor to hard drive wear, and cool drive operating temperatures help increase long-term drive reliability. WD achieves the lowest operating temperature of any hard drive in it's class, including slower drives spinning at 5,400 RPM, by lowering the drives' power consumption through advanced design of electronics and firmware.

Quiet – Today's PCs, digital video recorders and gaming machines are increasingly operated in environments where noise is less tolerated. WD minimizes WD Caviar noise to levels virtually below the threshold of human hearing with its WhisperDrive™ technology, which features a highly efficient power driver design. And to cut seek noise, Soft Seek™ technology streamlines read/write seeking algorithms, resulting in the drive operating more efficiently when accessing and writing data.

SecureConnect™ – provides a 500 percent stronger cable-to-drive connection than first-generation SATA hard drives and cables. Also ensures backward compatibility with legacy SATA cables and backplanes.

FlexPower™ – connector technology that accepts power from both industry-standard and new SATA power supplies.

Data Protection Enhancements

Data Lifeguard™ is an expanded set of data protection features that include shock protection, an environmental protection system, and embedded error detection and repair features that automatically find, isolate, and repair problem areas that may develop over the extended use of the hard drive. With these enhanced data reliability features, the drive can perform more accurate monitoring and error repair and deliver exceptional data security.
Data Lifeguard Tools™ is a set of software utilities that work in conjunction with the embedded Data Lifeguard features to make hard drive installation, drive management diagnostics, and repair simple and worry-free.
Shock Guard™ provides outstanding improvements in shock and vibration protection for WD Caviar SE drives. Shock Guard allows instantaneous data protection at high shock values to achieve leading shock specifications.
Recommended: Western Digital's Serial ATA cable with SecureConnect™ provides a 500 percent stronger cable-to-drive connection than first-generation SATA hard drives and cables; for use with Western Digital SATA drives only.
