*** RoHS COMPLIANT: Western Digital hard drive products manufactured and sold worldwide after June 8, 2011, meet or exceed Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance requirements as mandated by the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU.
‡ DATA TRANSFER RATE: MB/s is 1,000,000 bytes
‡‡ CACHE BUFFER: Portion of buffer capacity used for drive firmware
‡‡‡ MTBF and AFR: Specifications are based on a sample population and are estimated by statistical measurements and acceleration algorithms under typical operating conditions for this drive model. MTBF and AFR ratings do not predict an individual drive’s reliability and do not constitute a warranty.
§ OPERATIONAL POWER: 8K Queue Depth = 1 @ 40 IOPS
§§ IDLE POWER: Based on use of Idle_A
§§§ Some models of Ultrastar are identical in form, fit and function to the respective WD Gold™ model. The only differences are limited to the brand, label and ID string as reported by the firmware. For these drives, any previously completed qualification of the equivalent Ultrastar™ models should not require a re-qualification."
