Western Digital RE RAID Edition 4TB SATA Enterprise Drive - Full Review

Recommended Posts

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!
