|As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar 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.
Reduced Power Consumption WD has reduced power consumption by up to 40 percent compared to standard desktop drives with the combination of WD's IntelliSeek, NoTouch, and IntelliPower technologies.
Helps enable eco-friendly PCs WD Caviar Green drives yield an average drive power savings of 4-5 watts over standard desktop drives making it possible for our energy-conscious customers 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 for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
Massive capacity Capacities up to 2 TB offer the most available capacity for storage-intensive programs and space-hungry operating systems, like Windows Vista®, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.
Perfect for external drives External drive manufacturers can eliminate the need for a fan in a high-capacity product with a WD Caviar Green drive, the coolest and quietest in its class.
Reliable Low Power Drive8/14/2013
I use these drives in a Thecus SAN. It is set-up with RAID 10. Even though these are only 5400 RPM drives, set up with RAID 10, the SAN is very responsive. We had the SAN up 24/7 for 2 years. One of the 4 drives became questionable, so we replaced it.
Great big drive6/21/2012
I purchased 4 of these drives to put in a raid device a little over a year ago. They get a lot of use, but manage to keep up even though they aren't really designed for this kind of use.
a must buy6/18/2012
I used to have a 5400rpm, 80 GB hard drive in my Vista laptop. After a year and a half of new software, and gunking up the hard drive, I had only 10 GB of space left, which made my laptop pretty slow. I popped this 7200rpm, 320 GB hard drive in, and reinstalled from the factory image. WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE! No problems at all swapping it out. It boots up in half the time it did when new with the smaller hard drive. Now I have 4x as much space, which is room enough for two partitions (one for programs/OS, and one for data only). Also, I have noticed about 50% longer battery life, and noticeably cooler operation when sitting on my lap. Operates noticeably quieter.

The product is good so far; works as expected.
Good bang for buck drives!4/30/2012
Energy efficient. Easy to install. Formatted with no issues.
Not bad for the price.11/2/2010
This drive is doing it's job with no problems. It stores my media library and does that job just fine. At times it seems to take a while to spin up, but other than that I don't have any complaints.
Exactly What I Ordered9/19/2010
The bare drive arrived promptly and in perfect condition, as expected. Keeping in mind that "bare" means no cables, screws or software, the repalcement installation was effortless. The Dell BIOS recognized the drive immediately. After partitioning into two 1TB partitions, have been using the drive as data storage and backup. The "Green" designation means lower power consumption and appears to translate into longer spin-up times and overall slower access speeds. In summary, works as advertised but is perceptibly slower than my other 2TB drives without the Green designation. The speed/power consumption trade-off is your call!
