About WD AV-GP 500GB

WD AV-GP 500GB SATA HDD is optimized for DVR/PVR, video surveillance and similar applications needing a highly reliable drive that can withstand 24/7 operation without overheating. Thanks to SilkStream technology, data capture from 12 simultaneous video streams is possible without adversely affecting operation.

WD AV-GP 500GB Features

  • 24x7 Reliability: These drives are designed to last in high temperature always-on streaming digital audio/video environments such as PVR/DVR, IPTV, and video surveillance systems.
  • Widely Compatible: Tested for compatibility in a broad range of AV products including set top boxes, DVR/PVR, and mainstream video surveillance.
  • Reduced Power Consumption: WD AV-GP drives consume less power by up to 40 percent compared to 7200 RPM hard drives. Lower power means less heat and greater reliability.
  • Quiet Operation: Noise levels have been minimized to less than one sone - virtually below the threshold of human hearing.
  • SilkStream Technology: Optimized for smooth, continuous digital video playback of up to twelve simultaneous HD streams. SilkStream is compatible with the ATA streaming command set so CE customers can use standard streaming management and error recovery options.
  • IntelliSeek: Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
  • IntelliPower: A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate, and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance.
  • 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.
  • Preemptive Wear Leveling (PWL): The drive arm frequently sweeps across the disk to reduce uneven wear on the drive surface common to audio video streaming applications.
  • Advanced Format (AF): Technology being adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities.
  • 1 Million Hours MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure): Best-in-class reliability for mainstream 3.5-inch form-factor AV storage.
