Performance-optimised high-capacity storage for high-intensity applications, the chart above shows how the WD Se Hard Drives Perform in specific areas so it’s easier to choose which Hard Drive is best suited to your needs.
DUAL ACTUATOR TECHNOLOGY
A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.
The WD Se DATACENTER 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.
THERMAL EXTENDED BURN-IN TEST
Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation.
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.
