The new WD Caviar SE16 hard drives feature 16 MB cache combined with its 300 MB/s transfer rate.

According to the company, the WD Caviar SE16 drives feature advanced acoustics and quiet operation to reduce noise and significantly extend long-term reliability in the variety of applications using these drives today.

In addition, Western Digital introduced its NetCenter network hard drives for small office and home users.
