Not to long ago, we had taken a look at a couple 400GB hard drives from Hitachi and Seagate.  At the time, capacity wise those were the biggest hard drives you could come across.  Now however, Hitachi has released their 500GB hard drive, but the price of them are quiet high and what most people aren't willing to pay for for a hard drive, about $370 USD.  Technically, you could get two 250GB hard drives, put them in a RAID setup and end up with better performance and the cost would be significantly lower.


400GB hard drives seem to be somewhat of a median at the moment, they are not overly expensive for the amount of storage you receive.  We've already taken a look at 400GB models from Hitachi and Seagate, and we weren't about to leave out the other big hard disk name out there, none other than Western Digital.  Western Digital has come out with a slew of products that are known to be some of the best out there.  Today we are going to take a look at one of the members of their WD Caviar SE16 line, the 400GB WD4000KD.
