Here are a few benchmarks to compare the new model with the current WD1001FALS (32MB cache).
*Disclaimer - Benchmarking was done with one drive going through the motherboard's SATA and the other going through USB 3.0, so they are not on equal terms. We'll do more detailed work in the review.

Hey! I like WD's a lot but don't have any comparison info.. How does this drive compare to others on the market?
We compared it to the current comparable from WD in the first post. We're working on reviews right now.

The access time is reasonably low as well (looking at the 12.1ms reading).

Will it always have 500GB platters now like the WD1002FAEX (which also has two actuators)
If so is the only difference between the 1002FAEX and 1001FAES the SATA interface?
Is there going to be similar sorts of differentiation with the 2TB Blacks & 2TB RE's?

WD1001FAES name stand for, but I wouldn't say it necessarily has anything to do with the long awaited higher density 7200K platters
Corsair Force GS 240GB (OS drive). VelociRaptor 1TBx2 RAID-0 (gaming). SpinPoint F3 1TBx2 RAID-1 (important files). Barracuda 7200.14 3TBx2 (general storage)
