Product Highlights
  • 3.5" Form Factor
  • GreenPower Technology
  • NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
  • IntelliSeek Technology

The 2TB WD Caviar Green 3.5" SATA Internal Hard Drive from WD is designed for use in systems that require cool and quiet operation. It can be used as a secondary drive in PCs, for external enclosures and other applications that require cool and quiet operation. Furthermore, these drives are eco-friendly and energy efficient. With a 2TB storage capacity, SATA interface and transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps, it is ideal for demanding applications that require high performance. The Caviar Green uses NoTouch Ramp Load technology, which prevents the recording heads from resting on the disk during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This results in a more reliable drive due to the limited head wear. The Caviar Green has also been tested rigorously to ensure compatibility with most systems.

Cool Operation
The hard drive has been engineered for cool operation, which helps protect the drive and the data stored on it.
GreenPower Technology
This technology yields lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics perfect for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
Reduced Power Consumption
Best-in-class power management technology delivers significant power savings and solid performance.
Eco-Friendly Drives
WD green drives are innovatively designed and built using less rare earth minerals, with 100% conflict-free raw materials. In addition to being RoHS compliant, these drives are manufactured with lead- and halogen-free materials, resulting in less pollution to help ensure a sustainable future.
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
IntelliSeek Technology
The 3.5" internal hard drive features IntelliSeek technology which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
Upgrading Your Drive is Easy
WD Acronis True Image, available as a free download on the WD Support site, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to receive the benefits of a new drive.
Data Lifeguard
The drive features Data Lifeguard embedded error detection and repair features that automatically detect, isolate and repair problem areas which may develop due to extended use of the hard drive.
Tested for Compatibility
Rigorous tests are performed on systems and platforms to ensure that the drives are compatible with all systems.
High Quality and Reliability - The WD Advantage
The products are tested through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T) prior to launch. This testing ensures these products consistently meet high quality and reliability standards. Moreover, a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 useful articles as well as helpful software and utilities is also available. WD's toll-free customer support lines have longer operational hours to ensure timely support. You can access the WD Support site for additional details.

      Western Digital products have a way of earning their price point and reputation over time. After having other manufacturers sputter out and die on me I tend to go with Western Digital and this product has more than earned back it's price point by being fast and reliable. The two terabytes is great for large data transfers and if fast when equipped with a USB 3.0 external hard drive. I've been able to backup my data with ease and very little problems. The caviar green version(which this drive is) I found did everything I expected from it even knowing that there were faster models around. Simple and quick data storage is what you pay for and get, so for large storage without spending too much, I would and have recommended this drive to friends and family.

      This failed 3 days after heavy use of building a RAID and then creating a backup.

      The 2002 model version (of which I have 4) have had no issues.

      I did an RMA of this failed drive (2003 model version) and will be receiving the replacement shortly. I would still purchase again given the warranty and RMA support.

                          For a large photo library, or any mass storage needs, this drive ROCKS! It is not a speed daemon but it is large enough to last a long time with room to spare. It runs very cool and quiet, too. I use this drive in an external drive dock... without a fan and it stays cooooool!

                              I use this Hard drive in my Drobo 5D with thunderbolt. Its fast enough for me to edit video files straight from the drive and not have to use the local drive which is great. No complaints here, will be purchasing more in the future.

                                      Couldn't be more satisfied. First time using a system like this and it's pretty dope.

                                            For all of its reputation WD sells a package of little. This drive is barebones with no useful support from WD. It is claimed to be preformatted, but Windows 7 does not recognize it, except in Device Manager. I purchased two of these and immediately put Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on one. That is working well. Mechanically the drives seem to be good, but they are not preformatted and the WD web site is of no help. Of course, I have some fear of formatting the second - will I accidentally delete the first?

                                                this is my third purchase of this model and I'm very satisfied. I use them frequently and have had no problems. WD makes a quality drive.

                                                    I installed it as soon as I received it and started working great.

                                                        It is great for the price. WD delivers and is a trusted name brand for a reason. It is varying speeds which I didn't like initially - but I use it as a back-up drive so no complaints! It would be nice to know how fast/slow it is spinning, though, if possible...
