Smart Hard Drive Technology
WD BLACK is smarter than the Average Drive
When High-end components are added to performance and workstation PC’s they more than likely omit tiny vibrations and that can reduce the precision and performance of your hard drive and even the best chassis on the market can’t always stop this. The WD BLACK hard drives feature Vibration Control Technology (VCT) which allows the disks inside the drive to adapt to any problems or vibration conditions, that are inside your case, resulting in much higher data accuracy, performance and reliability over time, so for gamers this means you can game harder, faster and longer.
WD BLACK Features
Every WD BLACK drive is backed by an industry leading 5-year limited warranty. Compared to standard hard drives such as WD BLUE, WD BLACK hard drives pass more strenuous and aggressive internal testing over a longer period of time.
WD BLACK 500GB drive is fitted with StableTrac Technology. This secures the motor shaft inside the hard drive to increase reliability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, WD Black drives result in more accurate tracking in a particular sector during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.
The WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers twice the processing capability as a standard single-core processor to maximize drive performance, especially for loading games or large multimedia files.
