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.

As used for storage capacity, one megabyte (MB) = one million bytes, one gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes, and one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. As used for buffer or cache, one megabyte (MB) = 1,048,576 bytes. As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second, megabit per second (Mb/s) = one million bits per second, and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second.
