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 our desktop hard drives.

RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER)

Reduces drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.

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.

Compatibility testing

All WD Gold hard drives are extensively tested across a variety of popular OEM storage systems, SATA controllers, and host bus adapters, to ensure ease of integration for a plug and play solution.
