I don’t know about you, but when I build a new PC I basically plan for an SSD for my operating system and then a second drive or more for my Steam and other files. This has been fairly consistent in my builds from the “Fridge” with its double SSD’s and double spinning drives all the way to the most recent “lunchbox 3” with its SSD and hard drive. I even do the same thing on my gaming laptop. Sadly, there are a lot of people who just can’t do this with their laptops do to only having one drive space. Western Digital surprised us late last week with a game changing drive that has that situation in mind without going with a hybrid setup. That drive is their new WD Black 2 Dual Drive, a single drive that houses a 120GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive.

Although I was out of town at MLG all weekend, I did manage to slip in a little work here in there. Todays review is Western Digital's latest creation, the Black 2!

22 of these would mean 44 drives showing up in windows. You would run out of letters to name them :-P

very interesting device. Because of its thickness, we can only assume that the 1TB HDD section is a single platter. That will account for its speedy performance. Ive been seeing alot of the very slim laptop drives for some time now. They are just as thick as the SATA ports.

Very nice. Hope more companies jump on the band wagon and get the price war going!
