Re: I need the truth

You think your SE is old.  I have a 40 GB WD Protogé that I'm still using in one of my older computers.  That computer is running a P3 650.   That Protoge has been out of warranty since 2003.

Re: I need the truth

Thanks.  Fortunately, that computer has now been consigned to light duty work only.  So, maybe I'll get some more years out of it.

Re: I need the truth

I have two more questions:

 

What is the model number suffix and how do I interpret it?

 

Are newer revisions better than older ones?

 

 

 

Example of hardware changes:

WD isn't likely to say...

 

"Model Number Suffix

The Model Number Suffix (characters to the right of the dash following the model number) is only for in-house use."

 

according to the available literature.

 

You apparently need to be a WD employee, with access to the local WD intranet, in order to access the documentation that decodes the suffixes.  I'd doubt they'd publish the information here, if they don't want to make it available anywhere else.

Re: I need the truth

The Suffix stuff in model numbers (generally speaking) are used by companies for internal tracking. So (my best guess is) it might tell you things like what batch it came out of, what store it was made for, if it was made to go in an external or sold as a retail drive, stuff like that- nothing we would generally care about. It's the first part of the model numbers that tell you the size of the drive, what family its in, etc. that is important.

Sure.  Go find somewhere where people know what you're talking about. :smileyvery-happy:
