Features

  • Cool and quiet.

    WD GreenPower Technology yields lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics perfect for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
  • Reduced power consumption.

    Best-in-class power management technology delivers significant power savings and solid performance.
  • Eco-conscious.

    WD Green drives are innovatively designed and manufactured with lead-free, conflict-free and halogen-free materials to help ensure a sustainable future.
  • 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.
  • The WD advantage.

    WD puts our products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. This testing ensures our products consistently meet the highest quality and reliability standards of the WD brand. WD also has a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 helpful articles as well as helpful software and utilities. Our customer support lines have longer operational hours to ensure you get the help you need when you need it. Our toll-free customer support lines are here to help or you can access our WD Support site for additional details.v
  • Next-generation technology.

    Reduced power consumption, improved data tracking, and WD GreenPower Technology all help to improve the overall reliability of WD Green making it an efficient solution that lowers your total cost of ownership. NoTouch Ramp Load Technology also protects the drive by ensuring the recording head never touches the disk media, reducing wear and tear to the head and increases drive reliability.
  • Easy upgrade.

    Acronis True Image, available as a download on the WD Support website, enables you to clone or copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system and applications to get all the benefits of a new drive.
  • Recommended use.

    WD Green storage is tested and recommended for primary use in desktop and All-in-One PCs, as secondary storage for archiving, in external cases or as reliable backup storage.

    Desktop drives are not recommended for use in RAID environments, please consider using WD Red hard drives for desktop RAID environments or WD datacenter hard drives for rackmount or large RAID configurations.
