"WD Caviar Black 2 TB hard drives maximise the features and functionality of power computing applications such as gaming, photo editing, user generated multimedia and video," said Jim Morris, Senior Vice President and General Manager of WD's client storage systems.
"With the selection of WD Caviar Black hard drives, WD desktop customers receive the best possible mix of capacity, performance and reliability that is required for intense desktop computing."
