Western Digital releases double-personality both solid-state and spinning storage Black2 drive
November 26, 2013, 4:59 pm
Even though computer power-users have hoped for low-priced SSD drives becoming the norm for years, this still remains in the realms of dreams.When using a notebook, short of shelling-out big-bucks and get a not-that-large SSD drive, most performance-focused users rely on lowish SSDs, augmented by external spinning storage drives for their needs.
What Western Digital attempts to do now though, is actually combine both of those technologies into a single drive. The combo-drive is called the new WD Black 2.
Western Digital`s design puts both a 120GB SSD and a 1TB spinning disk into a single 2.5-inch SATA enclosure suitable for laptops, combining the best of both worlds; speed and low-cost-per-gigabyte storage.
The drive could prove potentially ideal for notebook power-users and gamers alike, as well as small form factor PC builds.Even though the practical side of the Black2 is unquestionable, the drive still costs a pretty penny.
The price of the Western Digital Black2 is $300, so in practice it is about the same as buying those two drives it combines by themselves.
For many though the cost will be justifiable since the combined functionality and the lack of dragging around a second drive with your notebook could prove to be very convenient indeed.
