Durability is a prominent feature in all of WDs SiliconDrive Series which make it suitable for use in military and high security applications, and is even available in an extended temperature version for use in extreme conditions. Other WD proprietary technologies have been included as well like SiSecure which safeguards data, PowerArmor for protecting against power surges or brown outs, and SiSMART which monitors drive condition and warns of any potential failure. A PATA CF card version is the other drive in this series which is actually a CF card that has the same features and comes with more capacity options of up to 16GB.
