Western Digital Caviar SE16 400GB

Recommended Posts

Western Digital Caviar SE16 400GB SATA (WD4000KD)

vs.

Western Digital Caviar SE16 400GB SATA II (WD4000KS)

What are the differences? Except the SATA2, of course.

I think I remeber the KD to be more close to the Raptors and the RE2, lacking the extreme burn in and the thereby caused high warranty.

Can this be confirmed?

Which one is the faster drive?

I think that the SATA II is the only difference. The WD4000YR is the RE2 model if I recall correctly. As for being faster, the WD4000KS is probably faster, but only during bursts.
