The Western Digital Caviar Blue WDBAAV5000ENC-NRSN is a 500 GB PATA IDE internal hard drive. While it does use the older PATA interface, the drive still has a large capacity and spins at 7200 RPM, making it one of the faster hard drives for older computers. Like other Caviar Blue drivers, it is targeted towards people who want large size and not speed out of their hard drive, or who don't want to spend a lot of money on their hard drive. Specifically, this drive is good for people who need a lot of space on an older computer, since it only has IDE connections.
