Harddrive manufacturer Western Digital (WD) said that it has sold 16.2 million harddrives in the past year, compared to 14.2 million devices in 2003. The company reported revenues of $955 million and earnings of $56 million.
WD attributed the increase in sales to greater demand for dives for the desktop PC and personal and digital video recorder markets. The company said it shipped about 1.6 million drives for consumer electronics applications, an increase of over 200 percent from the year-ago period. (THG)
