Western Digital Corp. announced it is now shipping in volume hard drives offering Serial ATA (SATA) interface with 300 MB/s burst data transfer rate, and also showcased its NetCenter network hard drives for small office and home users.

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.

Suggested retail pricing is $199 USD for WD Caviar SE16 with 250 GB capacity (model WD2500KS).

In addition, Western Digital introduced its NetCenter network hard drives for small office and home users. In just three steps, WD's NetCenter network hard drives allow user to share and save digital pictures, video and MP3 files, and printers across small office and home networks using a wired or wireless router.

With WD's NetCenter network drives, users can also create private, password-protected folders; back up files from any computer on the network; access files anytime from any computer on the network, even when all other computers are powered off; and connect additional external hard drives to increase storage capacity for multiple computers on the network. WD's NetCenter network drives also allow for real-time duplication of data.
