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.
