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.
Though WD would never be a serious competitor to Seagate, Fujitsu, and others in the enterprise high-RPM market, the 3.5" Raptor (and eventually 2.5" VelociRaptor) were nonetheless their attempt at getting into that market. With mostly SATA interfaces, these drives were apparently more popular with expensive consumer PC setups than in high-end server iron.

37-40GB/platter Section (all drives under here use platters that can hold 37-40GB of data apiece.)

Raptor 1st-Gen (10,000RPM, 8MB cache, SATA-150 interface)

WD360GD-xxFNAx/xxGHAx 37GB (1/2)
Note: Noticeably noisy at idle due to a ball-bearing spindle. All forthcoming Raptors would replace these with FDBs.


Raptor 2nd-Gen (10,000RPM, 8MB cache, SATA-150 interface)

WD360GD-xxFLAx/xxFLCx 37GB (1/2)
WD740GD-xxFLAx/xxFLCx 74GB (2/4)
WD800GD-xxFLCx 80GB (2/4)
Note: These use an internal PATA-to-SATA bridge chip (just like the first-generation Raptor), and are relatively well-known for only supporting TCQ instead of NCQ. The third-generation Raptors would finally pick up native SATA and NCQ support.
Note 2: The 80GB version was only available through Dell, and was not available on the open market.



75-80GB/platter Section (all drives under here use platters that can hold 75-80GB of data apiece.)

Raptor 3rd-Gen (10,000RPM, 16MB cache, SATA-150 interface)

WD360ADFD-xxNLRx 36GB (1/1)
WD740ADFD-xxNLRx 74GB (1/2)

WD1500ADFD-xxNLRx 150GB (2/4)
WD1600ADFD-xxNLRx 160GB (2/4)
Note: The 80 and 160GB versions were only available through Dell and HP, and were not available on the open market.


Raptor 3rd-Gen (10,000RPM, 16MB cache, SATA-300 interface)

WD740ADFS-xxSLRx 74GB (1/2)
WD800ADFS-xxSLRx 80GB (1/2)
WD1500ADFS-xxSLRx 150GB (2/4)
WD1600ADFS-xxSLRx 160GB (2/4)
Note: The 80 and 160GB versions were only available through Dell and HP, and were not available on the open market.


Raptor X (10,000RPM, 16MB cache, SATA-150 interface)

WD1500AHFD-xxRARx 150GB (2/4)
Note: This is a special version of the WD1500ADFD with a clear plastic window built into the lid. Needless to say, it was a staple in various high-performance and "gaming" builds throughout 2006~2008.



150-160GB/platter Section (all drives under here use platters that can hold 150-160GB of data apiece.)

VelociRaptor 1st-Gen (10,000RPM, 16MB cache, SATA-300 interface)

WD740HLFS-xxG6Ux 74GB (1/1)
WD740BLFS-xxYBUx 74GB (1/1)
WD800HLFS-xxG6Ux 80GB (1/2 [short-stroked])
WD1500GLFS-xxF8Ux 150GB (1/2)
WD1500HLFS-xxG6Ux 150GB (1/2)
WD1500BLFS-xxYBUx 150GB (1/2)
WD1600HLFS-xxG6Ux 160GB (1/2)
WD1600BLFS-xxYBUx 160GB (1/2)
WD3000GLFS-xxF8Ux 300GB (2/4)
WD3000HLFS-xxG6Ux 300GB (2/4)
WD3000BLFS-xxYBUx 300GB (2/4)
Note: "GLFS" and "HLFS" suffix denote models that shipped with the "IcePak" 2.5"-3.5" adapter; "GLFS" is carried only by early models that are not compatible with SATA hot-swap backplanes. "BLFS" suffix denotes models sold as bare 2.5" drives.
Note 2: The 80 and 160GB versions were only available through Dell and HP, and were not available on the open market.


S25 (10,000RPM, 16MB cache, SAS-600 interface)

WD1460BKFG-xxP2Vx 146GB (1/2)
WD3000BKFG-xxP2Vx 300GB (2/4)
Note: Basically the VelociRaptor 1st-Gen models with SAS interface instead of SATA. No IcePak, either.

Note: "HLHX" suffix denotes models that shipped with the "IcePak" 2.5"-3.5" adapter. "BLHX" suffix denotes models sold as bare 2.5" drives.
Note 2: The 160GB version was only available through Dell and HP, and was not available on the open market. It may apparently also be locked to SATA-300 interface speed.


S25 (10,000RPM, 32MB cache, SAS-600 interface)

WD3000BKHG-xxA29Vx 300GB (2/4)
WD4500BKHG-xxA29Vx 450GB (3/6)
