WesternDigital Caviar Green 1.5TB/1500GB 64MB 3Gbs WD15EARS SATA Hard Drives - FREE Shipping WD Caviar Green drives use less power and support quieter, cooler-running desktop PCs and external storage devices.
Overview WD Caviar Green SATA Hard Drives WD15EARS
1.5 TB, 64 MB Cache, SATA 3 Gb/s 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. Features > Reduced power consumption - WD has reduced power consumption by up to 40 percent compared to standard desktop drives with the combination of WDs IntelliSeek, NoTouch, and IntelliPower technologies.
> Helps enable eco-friendly PCs - 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.
> Cool and quiet - WD GreenPower Technology yields lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
> Massive capacity - Capacities up to 2 TB offer the most available capacity for storage-intensive programs and space-hungry operating systems, like Windows Vista®, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.
> 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.
> IntelliPower - A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance.
> IntelliSeek - 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.
> Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - Employs PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density.
> StableTrac - 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) View demo >
> Low power spin-up - WD Caviar Green drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads.
> Advanced power technology - 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. Specifications
