Western Digital Launches 2TB Green HD

These leaps in drive space are amazing!  It feels like just yesterday Seagate unleashed it’s 1.5TB drive on the world.  5 platters may make some noise and generate some heat, but you can’t discount the capacity!


Jan. 27, 2009 – WD today announced the first 2 terabyte
(TB) hard drive – the world’s highest capacity drive and the latest
addition to WD’s popular, environmentally friendly, cool and quiet, WD®
Caviar® Green™ hard drive family. This new 3.5-inch platform is based
on WD’s industry-leading 500 GB/platter technology (with 400 Gb/in2
areal density) with 32 MB cache, producing drives with capacities of up
to 2 TB.
