Product Information

WD Velocirator Duo 250GB 1000RPM 3.5" 64MB SATA 6Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Ideal For

High-performance computing, 3D rendering, digital content creation and editing, scientific computing and image management.

Ultra fast.

Designed around a 10,000 RPM spin speed, these SATA 6 Gb/s drives include a 64 MB cache and deliver the ultimate performance for photo and video editing.

Rock-solid reliability.

With 1.4 million hours MTBF, these drives have the highest available reliability rating on a high capacity SATA drive. In addition, these drives feature a 5-year limited warranty.

High capacity.

State-of-the-art technology delivers a balance of high performance and high capacity perfect for data-intensive workloads that require large amounts of storage such as video editing, 3D rendering and scientific modeling.

Ultra-cool operation.

Consumes less idle power and uses similar active power as the previous generation WD VelociRaptor, while offering higher capacity and performance.

Advanced Format (AF)

Technology being adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers to continue growing hard drive capacities.

IcePack mounting frame

The 2.5-inch hard drive is enclosed in a backplane-ready 3.5-inch mounting frame with a built-in heat sink that keeps this powerful little drive extra cool when installed in high-performance desktop chassis.

Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF)

Optimizes operation and performance when the drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis.

NoTouch ramp load technology

The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Pre-emptive Wear Leveling (PWL)

Ensures reliability for applications that perform a high incidence of read/write operations at the same physical location on the disk.

Environmentally conscious

In addition to being RoHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor also provides a halogen-free design.
