Desktop Hard Drives
WD Green hard drives are designed for use in systems that
require cool and quiet operation, as secondary drives in PCs,
for external enclosures and other applications for which low
noise and low heat are beneficial. These earth-friendly hard
drives are ideal for use whenever energy efficiency is needed.

Reduced power consumption
Best-in-class power management
technology delivers significant power
savings and solid performance.
IntelliSeek™
Calculates optimum seek speeds to
lower power consumption, noise and
vibration.
Cool and quiet
WD GreenPower Technology™ yields
lower operating temperatures for
increased reliability and low acoustics
perfect for ultra-quiet PCs and
external drives.
Tested for compatibility
We perform tests on hundreds of
systems and a multitude of platforms
in our FIT Lab™ to give our customers
confidence that our drives will work in
their systems.
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.
Applications
WD Green hard drives are tested and recommended for use as secondary storage in PCs, external enclosures and applications that require cool and
quiet operation. Desktop drives are not recommended for use in RAID environments. Please consider using WD Red™ hard drives for home and small office 1-5
bay NAS systems and WD enterprise hard drives for rackmount and NAS systems with more than 5 bays.*
* WD hard drives are designed and tested for use in specific applications and environments. This ensures that your hard drive is compatible with and functions properly in your application.
Our hard drives are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship in the system for which they were designed. Use in systems other than for what the hard drive was
designed could result in compatibility problems that affect proper function, unrelated to material and/or workmanship defects. For best results, be sure to select the appropriate product
for your application by consulting our product spec sheets on our website at www.wd.com or by calling our customer support line where we would be happy to help you through the
selection process.
The WD Advantage
WD puts our products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. This testing ensures our products consistently meet the
highest quality and reliability standards of the WD brand. WD also has a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 helpful articles as well as helpful software
and utilities. Our customer support lines have longer operational hours to ensure you get the help you need when you need it. Our toll-free customer support lines

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 SATA-IO organization as of the date of this specification
sheet. Visit www.sata-io.org for details.
