WD’s RE3 is an Application Drive
The new RAID Edition 3 (RE3) drive from Western Digital was more convincing to us for use as a system drive. Although it is limited to a 110 MB/s throughput, we consider this still sufficient today. The real strength of the RE3 drive is its very quick access time and high I/O performance, which beats the entire 7,200 RPM hard drive competition and leads to nice levels in the performance per watt measurement.
