The latest hard drive from Western Digital is the 2TB GreenPower Caviar, sporting four 500GB platters a 32MB cache and a reported sustained data rate of 100MB/s.  The Tech Report tested out that stat and it seems that the high density platters help put this drive right in the middle of the pack as far as performance goes.  While it will not beat out a VelociRaptor, it does have performance that can often beat an older Raptor model, fairly impressive for an enterprise class drive.  It also uses incredibly little power for the amount of storage space it has, and does so fairly quietly.

“Western Digital’s latest Caviar Green is the world’s first 2TB hard drive. But does it live up to the GreenPower standard of silent operation, low power consumption, and solid performance? We’ve run one through its paces to find out.”
