The Western Digital RAID Edition line of hard drives has been around
for some time now, and has largely impressed us with each subsequent
release. Since the launches of the RE4-GP and later, the faster
spinning RE4, WD's enterprise line had been capped at the 2TB mark.
Now that has changed with the introduction of a new line: simply named
the RE Series starting with a 4TB model.

Quote: "After perhaps a longer than expected wait, Western Digital has
released a 4TB hard disk in the form of its new RE series. RE drives
have always carried a 'faster' track geometry than their consumer
units, and this same case applies here. A heavier head pack resulted
in slightly higher seek times, but our sample was able to keep random
access performance in check and turn in some of the best file copy
performance numbers we've seen from a spinning disk to date. Here's
hoping we see the 4TB capacity point trickle down to the Red and Green
lines soon!"

Thanks for posting our news!
