The Western Digital Black 1TB HDD can be yours for a smidgen over $100, or about 10 cents a gigabyte if you would prefer to think of it that way.  This is a Black drive, which puts performance above long lifetime or low power consumption and with an average transfer rate of 86MB/sec in OCIA’s testing, it certainly seems to qualify as a high end platter based HDD.  Drop by to see the actual benchmark numbers.

“It is the WD Caviar Black 1TB drive I will be taking a look at today, thanks to the fine folks over at Geeks, who provided us with this OEM version of drive for review. The Black series, in addition to offering the greatest performance of Western Digital’s consumer lineup of Caviar drives, also includes the same five year warranty as their more expensive Enterprise class. Sporting a class-standard SATA 3.0Gbps interface, 7200rpm spindle speed and a whopping 32Mb of cache, the WD1001FALS represents Western Digital’s top of the line consumer grade hard drive.”
