As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar Green drives make it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation. As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar Green drives make it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation. 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. GreenPower technology yields lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives. Capacities up to 2 TB offer the most available capacity for storage-intensive programs and space-hungry operating systems, like Window Vista, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video. 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 performance.

Description

Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration. The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit. 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). WD Caviar Green drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads. Electronic components deliver best-in-class low power consumption for reduced power requirements and increased reliability. Ideal For: Environmentally friendly PCs and external storage requiring lower power consumption and cool, quiet operation.
