Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Description:

Remember when 20 MB drives were "it"? Then 1 GB drives were the rage? Here we are at half a terabyte, folks, and for less than what 30 GB drives cost when they were new. How big is a tera-anything? That's a one followed by twelve zeros. The distance light travels in two months is about one tera-mile. Too abstract? Okay, if your DVD holds 8 GB, this drive will hold the equivalent of 62 DVDs with room left over for part of your CD collection. There's only three things you can really get excited about in a hard drive: the size, the speed, and the cost. We covered size. The maximum transfer rate is 3Gb/sec using the SATA interface, so it's fast, with a 16MB buffer to help it keep up. It's value priced and comes with a manufacturer's limited warranty to further protect your investment. Don't run out of storage in the middle of a project; get one now!
