WD AV-GP
Power-saving Hard Drives
Power-conserving WD AV-GP SATA hard drives take
advantage of WD GreenPower Technology™ to meet the
24x7 requirements of demanding audio and video
environments. With power reduction of up to 40 percent,
they deliver cool and quiet operation and reliability perfect
for audio video applications such as PVRs, DVRs, set-top
boxes (STBs) as well as surveillance video recording.

Product Features
24x7 reliability
SilkStream™
IntelliPower™
These drives are designed to last in
always-on, streaming digital audio/
video environments such as
PVR/DVR, DVR recorders, and
surveillance video recorders.
Optimized for smooth, continuous
digital video playback of up to
twelve simultaneous HD streams.
SilkStream is compatible with the
ATA streaming command set so CE
customers can use standard
streaming management and error
recovery options.
A fine-tuned balance of spin speed,
transfer rate, and caching
algorithms designed to deliver both
significant power savings and solid
performance.
Reduced power
consumption
With the combination of WD’s
IntelliSeek, IntelliPark, and
IntelliPower technologies, WD has
reduced power consumption by up
to 40 percent compared to
competitors’ drives. Lower power
means less heat and better
reliability.
Quiet
Noise levels have been minimized to
less than one sone* – virtually below
the threshold of human hearing.
IntelliSeek™
Calculates optimum seek speeds to
lower power consumption, noise,
and vibration.
Preemptive Wear Leveling
(PWL)
The drive arm frequently sweeps
across the disk to reduce uneven
wear on the drive surface common
to audio video streaming
applications.
IntelliPark™
Parks the recording heads off the
disk surface during spin up, spin
down, and when the drive is off.
This ensures the recording head
never touches the disk surface
resulting in improved long term
reliability due to less head wear, and
improved non-operational shock
tolerance.
Advanced Format (AF)
Technology being adopted by WD
and other drive manufacturers as
one of multiple ways to continue
growing hard drive capacities. AF is
a more efficient media format that
enables increased areal densities.
(WD10EURS model only)
* A sone is a subjective unit of loudness as perceived by a
person with normal hearing.

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, and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second. Effective maximum SATA 3 Gb/s transfer rate calculated according to the Serial ATA specification published by the SATAIO organization as of the date of this specification sheet.
