The Western Digital WD Blue 320GB 7200RPM IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Internal Hard Drive was designed from the ground up to be used for all your day to day computing needs. The spacious 320GB drive is a perfect mounting drive for your operating system or as a sorting drive for anyone who downloads or stores a large amount of digital media. The speedy 7200RPM drive makes loading saved files or game saves a breeze, and is ideally suited to high transaction programs, like those used in image manipulation. While the drive may seem a little small for use as a main drive, when housed in an external bay, the 320GB device makes an ideal quiet and safe travel companion due to its built in WhisperDrive and ramp loading technology.
 
No Touch Ramp Load Technology
 
The built in ramp loading technology found in the Western Digital WD Blue 320GB 7200RPM 3.5" Internal Hard Drive has been specifically designed to protect your valuable information by keeping the head off the surface of the drive. When not in use, the head swivels up and onto a ramp. When on the ramp, the head is kept away from the surface of the actual drive which helps to prevent damage and lost information that can occur when a device is dropped or handled a little rougher than the average user expects. More than that, the recording head never actually comes in contact with the disk media. This ensures that significantly less wear and tear occurs to the recording head or the media itself. It also offers much safer protection to the drive while it is in transit.
 
WhisperDrive
 
Western Digital's exclusive WhisperDrive technology uses state of the art seeking algorithms to offer one of the quietest 3.5-inch hard drives available. The drive is nearly inaudible when installed in a home or business computer, or when housed in an external or portable bay. The Western Digital WD Blue 320GB 7200RPM 3.5" Internal Hard Drive operates just barely in the range of tones audible to humans. These algorithms also optimize the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption in addition to the remarkably reduced sound levels.
 
Cool
 
This drive is part of Western Digital's Caviar line. The Caviar line is well known for the incredibly low running temperatures. The temperature of a drive in daily operations has a direct link to the longevity of the drive, as well as the frequency of data corruption and drive reliability. With a cooler running temperature, you can rest assured that your important information is stored in a safe environment.
When you're looking to upgrade a legacy computer or to replace a drive, look no further than the Western Digital WD Blue 320GB 7200RPM 3.5" Internal Hard Drive. It's the perfect thing to spruce up your rig or add a larger storage space for your ever growing collection of digital media. Available for less than $90 dollars at reputable online retailers complete with a two year limited warranty on both parts and labour, this hard drive has been specifically designed to meet your everyday computing needs.
