Power-saving Hard Drives
Product Features
24x7 reliability
These drives are designed to last in
always-on, streaming digital audio/
video environments such as PVRs,
DVRs and surveillance video recorders.
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
IntelliSeek™
SilkStream™
IntelliPower™
Noise levels have been minimized to
less than one sone* – virtually below the
threshold of human hearing.
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.
Calculates optimum seek speeds to
lower power consumption, noise,
and vibration.
A fine-tuned balance of spin speed,
transfer rate, and caching algorithms
designed to deliver both significant
power savings and solid performance.
IntelliPark™
Delivers lower power consumption
by automatically unloading the heads
during idle to reduce aerodynamic drag.
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.
1 million hours MTBF
Best-in-class reliability for mainstream
3.5-inch form-factor AV storage.**
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. (WDxxEURS models only)
*A sone is a subjective unit of loudness as perceived by a person with normal hearing.
**Based upon dual tuner system operating in typical 30°C air ambient environment.
