WD Green™ hard drives are designed for use in systems that require cool and quiet operation. These earth-friendly
3.5-inch hard drives are ideal for use whenever energy efficiency is needed.

Leading the way to green hard drives - WD led the industry in creating a new category of hard drives that use less power and helps to reduce the world's energy demands one computer user at a time. With over 100 million
WD Green drives sold customers using WD Green drives have saved the planet over 466 million kwh of power - nearly equalling the annual power production of a single coal power plant!

Conflict-free materials – As a leader in hard drive manufacturing, WD proudly guarantees our hard drives are built with 100% conflict-free raw materials.

Halogen free – In addition to being RoHS compliant, all WD Green drives are lead and halogen free, resulting in less pollutants getting into our environment.
Reduced rare earth dependency – WD’s next-generation WD Green hard drives are built using less rare earth minerals.
Reduced power consumption – WD Green drives deliver both significant power savings and solid performance. These drives also consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads on systems as they are booted.

3D Active Balance – Our exclusive dual plane balance technology minimizes emitted vibration, lowers noise and reduces the potential for errors during read/write operations.

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.

Tested for compatibility – We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.

Upgrading your drive is easy – WD Acronis TrueImage, available as a free download on the WD Support website, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to get all the benefits of a new drive.

The WD advantage – WD puts our products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. On average, each new product goes through 600,000 hours of testing. WD also has a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 helpful articles. You can also call toll-free support 7 days per week in the U.S. and Canada. See the WD Support site for full details.
