This Western Digital Caviar SE16 family is Western Digital's range of performance-grade desktop hard drives. Unlike their GreenPower (GP) series, the Caviar SE16 hard drives have a spindle speed of 7200 RPM.
Today, we will be taking a close look at their 750 GB Caviar SE16 model. Will it be significantly faster than the 1 TB Caviar GP which impressed us with its high performance, or will the Caviar GP turn out to be a better buy? Read on and find out!
Here's a quote from the review :-
"Unlike their Caviar GP hard drives, the Caviar SE16 drives are performance-grade desktop hard drives. As such, they have platters that spin at full 7200 RPM. Coupled with their use of perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR), the higher spindle speed allowed the Caviar SE16 to deliver incredibly high transfer rates."
