Advanced Format Technology (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.
Optimized for smooth, continuous digital video playback of up to five simultaneous HD streams. SilkStream is compatible with the ATA streaming command set so AV customers can use standard streaming management and error recovery options.
Noise levels have been minimized to less than one sone* - virtually below the threshold of human hearing.
Low power consumption
The drive draws less than 2 Watts while operating and a mere 4.75 Watts during spin up.
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.
