Our good friends at Western Digital are now offering up Gold hard drives with up to 10TB of storage. Okay, this may be a little too much for the average user but we offer up several Western Digital hard drives.

Let’s take a look at a few.

WD10EFRX WD Red offers enhanced dual-plane balance control technology that significantly improves the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time.
