More about : bare drive Reply to Christopher Gonzalez Best solution ThatVietGuy a b G Storage February 28, 2014 7:59:30 PM Bare drive means that what you buy is only the hard drive, no cables, no software, or anything else that usually comes in a retail box. The difference between the two is that the WD1002FAEX has two platters and the WD1003FZEX has one platter. The latter is also newer, explaining why it's more expensive.
