    This is a standard Caviar Black drive - maybe the spec sheet on WD website will tell you that answer ?

    You are starting to frighten me. even though I have 1TB and 2TB drives as well, I mostly buy the black series due to the longer warranty and cannot complain so far. the real 24/7 task I have on my purple 3TB drive which is holding up nicely... I had a 1TB drive fail within warranty (black series) and got a refurb'd blue series back. Ah well, its still working though.....
    Perhaps that is what I got back, refurb. The replacement HDD had the same model # and label, however it was not blue on the label?? 2 days so far, so good. I am going to look at my cable company's DVR boxes and see what brand hdd they use, both run 24/7 for over 3 years now, no problems. 1 is 500gb and the other is 1TB
