LaCie CloudBox Review

Apple Time Capsule using WD desktop HDD: Is this a “server grade” drive?

Teardowns of Apple's freshly updated Time Capsule have led to questions over what constitutes a "server grade hard disk" as per the company's promotional material, given it appears a regular Western Digital drive has been used. According to Apple, the new Time Capsule offers either 2TB or 3TB of "server grade" storage; when Hardmac opened their 2TB unit up, however, they discovered a standard WD Caviar Green HDD inside, rather than a specific enterprise-spec drive.
