WD Green 500GB 3.5" SATA Internal Hard Drive
As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD 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.
WD leads the way; pioneering capacity to deliver a massive 3 TBs of storage on a single drive.
Reduced power consumption
Reduced power consumption makes it possible 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 perfect for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
Please Note: This is an OEM drive therefore no cables, screws or software are included.

The world's largest capacity internal hard drive.
WD Green SATA drives now deliver up to a massive 3 TB's of storage on a single drive.
WD meets the technological challenges of implementing 3 TB SATA hard drives.
SATA hard drives are now capable of storing up to 3 TB of data on a single hard drive. WD is leading the way in the industry, providing you with solutions for implementing 2.19 TB and larger drives.
Perfect for external drives.
External drive manufacturers can eliminate the need for a fan in a high-capacity product by utilizing the cool and quiet operation of WD Caviar Green hard drives.
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. Additionally, WD Green drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads on systems as they are booted.
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.
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. (RX, RS and RSDTL models only)
PCs, external storage and other devices that require lower power consumption and cool, quiet operation.
