The HDD sata-WD 3.5” 500G 7K2-WD5003ABYX 3gb/s Dual processor – Twice the processing power results in a 20% performance improvement over the previous generation.
RAFF – Our 4th generation RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration simultaneously, in real time for up to a 60% performance improvement in high vibration environments over the previous generation of drives.
IntelliSeek – Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration in active seek modes without degrading performance.
Multi-axis shock sensor – An additional 3rd sensor has been added to automatically detect subtle high frequency shock events in all axis enabling compensation to protect the data.
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) – Prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Third generation dynamic fly height – Each read-write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.
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.
Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) – WD RE3 drives utilize PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density.
