Dynamic Fly-Height & Dual-Stage Actuator Technology
Dynamic Fly-Height technology utilizes real-time read/write head adjustments for consistent performance, reduced errors, and optimized reliability. Dual-Stage Actuator technology improves positional accuracy over the data track. The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional methods, whereas the secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine-tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.
WD Ultrastar hard drives are extensively tested with a variety of storage systems, SATA controllers, and host bus adapters to ensure they are a simple plug-and-play storage solution.
