Unboxing the WD 2.0 TB USB disk – WDBAAU0020HBK

Got a couple of external 2.0 TB disks from WD; prices € 65 at amazon. Amazing deal.

But, I wanted to know what’s inside of these boxes. So, I took my trusty putty-knife (the one I use to operate on Mac mini’s) and I opened it up. And this is what’s inside:

Disk: Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EACS 2.0TB with 16MB cache
(update: or you might find a WD20EARS 2.0TB with 64MB cache!)

Model: WD20EACS-11BHUB0

  1. I’ve had one of these drives now for about 18 months and it has never been switched off, never made a noise, never had a problem and is very reliable. Highly recommended i’m going to get a the 3TB version next – wdbaau0030hbk.

    • Bummer! Always backup your pictures to multiple disks, RAID or not. In 2004, I lost all my foto’s (also the ones I manually scanned from originals) due to a nice Lacie disks that said ‘Poefff’.
