I don’t have nearly enough information on my hard drive to make the WD Caviar Green a worthwhile purchase, but my inner geek is still excited about its release. The 2TB hard drive features IntelliSeek technology to find the drive’s optimal speed at any given point in time. That means the Caviar Green only uses as much energy as it needs, resulting in energy savings of up to 40 percent compared to standard desktop drives.
The Caviar Green also utilizes Western Digital’s GreenPower technology to ensure low temperatures for increased reliability and quiet operation. And of course, the hard drive has impressive stats: 32 MB of cache, 500 GB per platter, and 26 to 29 dBA of noise from idle to seek mode.
The drive was released earlier this week for $299. 1 TB and 1.5 TB versions will also be available.
