power consumption - WD has reduced power consumption by up to 40
percent compared to standard desktop drives with the combination of
WD's IntelliSeek, NoTouch, and IntelliPower technologies.
enable eco-friendly PCs - WD Caviar Green drives yield an average drive
power savings of 4-5 watts over standard desktop drives making it
possible for our energy-conscious customers to build systems with
higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured
reliability, and energy conservation.
quiet - WD GreenPower Technology yields lower operating temperatures
for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs and
Massive capacity - Capacities up
to 2 TB offer the most available capacity for storage-intensive
programs and space-hungry operating systems, like Windows Vista®, with
plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.
for external drives - External drive manufacturers can eliminate the
need for a fan in a high-capacity product with a WD Caviar Green drive,
the coolest and quietest in its class.
- A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate and caching
algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid
IntelliSeek - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
NoTouch ramp load technology -
recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less
wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection
Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - Employs PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density.
- The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced
vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and
write operations. (2 TB models only)
Low power spin-up - WD Caviar Green drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads.
power technology - Electronic components deliver best-in-class low
power consumption for reduced power requirements and increased
