Dancing_Banana BestDirect and Hardware Canucks Western Digital 1TB HDD Sweepstakes

Hardware Canucks & BestDirect are giving away a Western Digital 1TB HDD to one lucky member.

About the Drive

WD Caviar Black drives combine a high performance electronics architecture with a rock solid mechanical architecture to deliver the perfect storage solution for your fully-loaded PC or maxed out gaming machine. Cool drive operation, no-touch head technology, and leading-edge vibration protection ensure enhanced reliability and sustained data throughput. And we back it all up with a 5-year limited warranty.

High Performance Electronics Architecture
  • Dual processor - Twice the processing power to maximize performance.
  • 32 MB cache - Bigger, faster cache means faster performance.
Rock Solid Mechanical Architecture

Hmm...need to buy a new hard drive because this one is dieing on me. I guess I'll hold off for this (even though my chances are about slim to none :P )
