New hard drives from Western Digital
As the world's first manufacturer of hard drives, Western Digital now has two storage media in its range that can store 30GB on a single hard drive disc.
This is the Caviar series, the 5400 Revolutions per minute, and is offered with 30, 40 and 60GB. In the 40GB variant, however, 20GB slides are used. Since it is possible to accommodate more and more data on a single write, manufacturers need fewer parts, which of course is reflected in falling prices.
