Here are all of the models currently in the database for this manufacturer and drive width. Models are sorted into sections by platter density.

Some tips:

The total capacity of each individual model is shown beside each model number.
A platter-head ratio is shown next to the total capacity tag in brackets. It works very simply: a (3/6) ratio indicates three disks and six read/write heads. Models that "waste" some amount of their actual total capacity in order to fit into certain capacity brackets (such as a 320GB unit based on one 500GB platter and two heads) are marked accordingly as [short-stroked].
Miscellaneous details of possible interest (unusual rotational speeds, strange marketing decisions, and so on) are noted if deemed necessary.
Assume that all models are 9.5mm-thick except when tagged otherwise.
WD's AV-25 is meant for DVRs, game consoles, and other such non-PC applications. The Reds use "NAS-worthy" firmware and are similar in targeted purpose as their 3.5" counterparts. The 2.5" Greens are differentiated from the Blues (listed in their own section) by higher capacities and non-laptop-friendly z-heights (usually 15mm), although as of 2015 WD has consolidated its Blue and Green lines. This list also covers various "Not For Resale" WD drives with and without soldered USB interfaces, which are usually found inside the firm's Passport and Elements external HDD products.
