WD RE 7200 RPM hard drives are engineered to thrive in a high duty cycle RAID system while still offering traditional low cost-per-capacity desktop value. Designed and manufactured to server-class standards, WD RE drives provide RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) to significantly reduce drive fallout caused by extended drive error-recovery processes and are tested to 1 million hours MTBF. These drives include an 8 MB (SB) or 16 MB (YS) cache for faster time to data and fluid dynamic bearings (FDB) to reduce heat, vibration, and noise.
Superior reliability — tested to 1 million hours MTBF at high duty cycle, these enterprise drives are designed and manufactured to provide server-class reliability.
Fast — with up to 3.0 Gb/s data transfer rate, and up to 16 MB cache, these drives deliver optimum performance in nearline server environments.
Low power — Active Power Save™ delivers best-in-class seek mode power consumption through advanced WD firmware that conserves power in active seek modes without degrading performance.
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) — a feature pioneered by WD that significantly reduces drive fallout caused by extended drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
This drive is compatible with any of our SATA hot swap trays and controllers.

Warranty: 1 Year DiscTech
The product has been built, rebuilt or repaired at the original manufacturer's factory (Note we NEVER sell 3rd party repaired items, as we do not find them to be reliable enough). Often these products are extremely close to new in condition, except that they contain at least one recycled or repaired component. Failure rates are often lower on these devices since they have been far more thoroughly tested than new items. Watch a video about our refurbishing process
