WD Announces 5mm WD Blue HDDs and WD Black SSHDs Discussion

5 posts in this topic

Since it's not offered on its own, WD didn't disclose a warranty. All through the OEM for now.

OEMs can order the Black hybrid in a variety of cache configurations including 8MB, 16MB and 24MB capacities. WD has opted for lower cost MLC NAND for their cache, which is the trend with hybrid hard drives.

The cache sizes don't make any sense if we're talking about NAND. The article needs to clarify what quantity of NAND is used in the new Black.

We know Seagate uses 8GB of MLC NAND on their 500GB SSHD Thin 2.5" Laptop Drive.

Thanks!
