    Product Description

    Guaranteed UK Stock - 3 Year Warranty

    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.
    Key Features
    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. This power savings equates to reducing CO2 emission by up to 13.8 kilograms per drive per year - the equivalent of taking a car off the road for 3 days each year*. By using environmentally-conscious PCs with our WD Caviar Green drives on board, large organizations with many desktop computers can minimize their carbon footprint and save real money on electricity costs.
    Cool and quiet - GreenPower™ technology yields lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
    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.
    IntelliPower - A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance.
    IntelliSeek - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
    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.
    Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - Employs PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density.
    Low power spin-up - WD Caviar Green drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads.
    Advanced power technology - Electronic components deliver best-in-class low power consumption for reduced power requirements and increased reliability.

    Saw this in the email this morning. So, it's £39.99 for 1TB or £46.99 for 1.5TB? 500GB for £7 sounds nice.

    Pity i have wayyyyy more storage than i need though.

    Yep. The biggest amount of extra storage you can get for just £7 :laugh:

    The only difference is that the 1Tb has 64mb cache whilst this 1.5Tb has 32mb cache.
