WD Caviar Green storage is designed specifically with reliability in mind for an increased drive lifespan. The advantage of being
cool and quiet impacts overall reliability while reduced heat output, decreased power consumption, quiet acoustics, and best-in-class
power management make WD Green a leader when compared to the competition. 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. These earth-friendly hard drives are ideal for use whenever energy efficiency is needed.
WD Green hard drives are tested and recommended for primary use in desktop and All-in-One PCs, as secondary storage for archiving,
in external cases or as
reliable backup storage. Desktop drives are not recommended for use in business RAID environments.


Reduced Power Consumption
WD has reduced power consumption 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.

Cool and Quiet
Drives with WD GreenPower Technology™ yield lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs
and external drives.

Perfect 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 performance.
Additionally, WD Caviar Green drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads on systems as they are booted.

Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.

NoTouch™ Ramp Load Technology

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.

Advanced Format (AF)
Technology being adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a
efficient media format that enables increased areal densities.
