Western Digital Caviar RE2 750 GB Hard Drive

Just in case you missed the new link at the top of the page, we're writing this morning to let you all know that we've just posted  a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features and performance of Western Digital's Caviar RE2 750 GB hard drive.  Western Digital’s RE2 lineup is targeted at workstations and servers, which need lots of disk capacity along with top-notch RAID performance and long-life reliability.  At its core, the RE2 lineup is identical to the SE16 lineup for the performance desktop, but the RE2 has a slightly different feature set, along with more robust MBTF (mean-time between failure) ratings and warranties.  We test the drive standalone and in a dual-drive RAID 0 configuration.  Click the link below and check it out...

I'm a bit surprised to see that having only half the cache of most of its competitors results in such a minimal difference in performance. I expected a far more pronounced variance in performance for tasks directly related to cache. Interesting.
