Difference between EARS, EADS and EVDS disks?


#1

HI I wanto to buy 1500GB disk, but there are three types of them(EVDS, EADS, EARS) and no explanation. Can anybody tell me the difference?


#2

there is no wd1500ears as far my knowledge

WD1500EVDS — >> WD AV-GP

WD1500EADS — >> WD CAVIAR GP


#3

ears use new format technique

eads & evds use traditional algorithms

I’m not really familiar with EARS and EADS. What exactly does the EADS or EARS actually mean because I’m not to sure I only want this hard drive to back up everything on my computer should I buy it? Please help thank you
