Western Digital GreenPower AV hard drives reduce power consumption by 40 percent

Western Digital has designed its new GreenPower (GP) version of its WD AV hard drives with technologies that provide cooler and quieter operation and lower power consumption. WD’s GreenPower family of hard drives for desktop, enterprise and audio video applications reduces power consumption by as much as 40 percent over standard drives in their respective classes. The new WD AV-GP family of drives offers capacities of 500 gigabytes (GB), 750 GB and one terabyte (TB), and is perfect for audio video applications such as DVRs (digital video recorders), as well as surveillance video recording.

Western Digital AV-GP hard drives deliver exceptional power conservation, run ultra-cool and quiet, while providing solid performance. In addition to the sound-reducing properties of IntelliPower, IntelliSeek and IntelliPark, WD utilizes multi-stage formed stainless steel top covers and precision-designed base castings that minimize sound levels for consumer sound-sensitive applications.
