Following our test of the Caviar Green 1 TB in the 32 MB cache version (WD10EADS), we're coming back to Western Digital's green range with a test of the 16 MB cache drive (WD10EACS). We're also taking the opportunity to run it through our new test protocol, which we didn't yet have in place when we tested the 32 MB version. Before getting into the tests, lets do a quick recap: remember, the Western Digital "Green" series is a range of quiet drives that heat up little and consume little but only run at 5400 rpm rather than 7200 rpm (the speed for higher performance drives). The WD10EACS is also limited to 16 MB of cache, against 32 MB for the WD10EADS (see inset). Both have an SATA 3 Gbps interface (SATA-2 ). The 16 MB version is available in 500 GB, 640 GB, 750 GB and 1 TB. It's a shame that no 2 TB version exists. For that you need to move up the range (see inset for info on the EADS or EARS drives). Once again, remember that the rating here, in contrast to the overall rating, takes into account all drives tested, including SSD performance. The Caviar Green is no wonder drive.
