    Hi,

    I had to RMA my WD20EARX-00ZUDB0 « uses 4 x 500 GB platters » about 12 days ago.

    Yesterday I received a replacement hard drive: WD20EARX-008FB0.

    Does anyone happen to know how many platters that one has?

    I missed to weight the old drive before sending it off, but the weight of the new drive is 629 gr.

    If it's of any help, these are the HD Tune results of the new drive:

    this page has many platter layouts (not yours though) but I believe your replacement drive has 3 platters.
