More Info

The Western Digital 500GB Caviar Green Power-saving Desktop Hard Drive consumes 40% low power compared to standard desktop drives, providing optimal system performance and ensured reliability. Use of eco-friendly PCs with the hard drive at large organizations can highly save electricity and reduce carbon footprint.

Defined by its Green Power technology, the 500 GB Caviar Green Power-saving Desktop Hard Drive keeps the system cool during operation, thus protecting the drive and the data from excess heat. In addition, the ultra-cool feature eliminates the need for a fan in external drives. Built-in IntelliPower technology maintains proper balance of spin speed, transfer rate, and caching algorithms, thereby offering reduced power consumption and solid performance.

IntelliSeek function calculates optimum seek speeds to minimize power consumption, noise, and vibration. Featured NoTouch Ramp Load technology ensures that the recording head never touches the disk media, providing enhanced drive protection in transit. During startup, the Caviar Green Power-saving Desktop Hard Drive consumes less current, thus allowing lower peak loads.
