WD unveils GreenPower 500GB HDD

Posted on Thursday, November 29 2007 @ 04:15:33 CET by


Western Digital unveiled a new 500GB HDD in its GreenPower family of hard drives. The new WD Caviar GP 500GB uses only 3.3W in idle and 6W during seek mode.

WD Caviar GP 500 GB 3.5-inch SATA hard drives support quieter, cooler-running desktop PCs and external storage devices, with power usage 30 percent lower than any other announced 500 GB hard drive in the industry.

"Cooler and quieter operation are key benefits of the WD Caviar GP line of hard drives, which has created a strong following among desktop and external HDD customers," said Don Bennett, vice president and general manager of WD's desktop business unit. "When a hard drive requires 30 percent less power to operate, heat generation is significantly reduced, enabling greater long-term reliability in all applications."

WD Caviar GP 500 GB hard drives (model WD5000AACS) will be available for $149.99 USD.
