Western Digital SE 4TB 3.5-Inch WD Se SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Hard Drive

Expert Review

Western Digital's SE series - short for Scalability even though there's no 'e' in scalability - is like Seagate Constellation in that it's designed for small and large-scale enterprise needs alike, and is therefore also an excellent drive for RAID and enterprise designs alike. With a 4TB capacity, this drive is among a select few with one of the largest possible capacity in current hard drive design. Western Digital also includes a 128MB cache, ensuring better short-term performance for the drive in handling even larger files with its internal cache. Lastly, it's worth noting Western Digital backs this drive with its ability to handle requests 24/7 and backs this promise with its 5-year warranty, longer than many other hard drives out there. For these reasons, the Western Digital SE drive is an excellent choice for many.Rating: 4.75/5
