Overview
The advantage of cool & quiet

Heat has a large impact on the overall reliability of a HDD's life over time. It can also lead to increased power consumption, the requirement of additional fans and increased fan operation, increased noise levels and the increased chance of failure. WD Green drives come equipped with WD GreenPower Technology which allows the drive to operate cooler with increased overall reliability.

Power management with performance

Best-in-class power management, reduced heat output, and next-generation technologies such as IntelliSeek offer a perfect balance of performance and power, making WD Green a leader in performance when compared to the competition's 4 TB HDD.

Reliability with an increased lifespan

Quiet acoustics, reduced vibration and advanced 4K HDD formatting makes WD Green a stronger solution when compared to the competition and perfect for PCs and external drive applications. WD Green also features a Dual Stage Actuator, which delivers higher precision motion for 2X the data performance and increases drive reliability.

Capacity storage

Large capacity offerings of up to 4 TBs help expand customer capabilities and application usage of WD Green including primary installations in desktop PCs, as secondary storage in external cases or as reliable backup storage.
