WD Gold hard drives feature advanced technology that delivers industry leading reliability, capacity, power efficiency and performance. Full range of nearline capacities – From boot servers to high end enterprise storage systems, WD Gold hard drives offer the capacities required for the most demanding datacenter environments. Highest workload capability – Delivering both performance and reliability to any datacenter environment, WD Gold hard drives are designed to handle up to 550TB per year which is the highest workload capability of any 3.5-inch hard drive. Highest level of reliability – With up to 2.5 million hours MTBF. Vibration Protection – Enhanced RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in high vibration environments over other desktop hard drives. RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) – Prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives. Extended thermal burn-in test – Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation. Dynamic fly height technology – Each read-write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability. Dual actuator technology – A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy. Premium support Dedicated 24×7 over the phone support is included with every WD Gold hard drive.

Outstanding value and performance; steady transfer rate and very good I/O handling. I bought three of the 4TB WD Gold drives and the performance is outstanding. In addition to the speed, I needed the best reliability I can get for my money and this is the model to which I have committed my IT project’s success. I have been a server engineer for many years and can say that these babies do not disappoint when it comes to performance.

Good Speed, Great Value. I have this hooked up to an external hard drive running on USB 3.1 using the latest chip from ASMedia 1351 in Windows 10. The drive is rated at a max speed of 200MB/s and I am getting Seq 195 MB/s Read and 196 MB/s Write. Overall I would have gone with the 6TB or 10TB Gold Drives which are rated at 220MB/s but did not need the extra space, however this double speeds from a few years ago for a pretty good price. Compared to a WD Black 4TB at Seq 171 MB/s Read and 169 MB/s Write this is a very…

Awesome for spinning rust drive! My data weighs so much less now. Joking aside it’s surprising to me how quiet and cool these drives run. Fast and great performance too. Replacing my Red Pro array and there is a notable performance difference.
