About Western Digital

The WD WD5000AZDX 500GB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive makes it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability and energy conservation.

Western Digital Features

  • Massive capacity: WD Caviar Green SATA drive delivers 500GB of storage on a single drive
  • Cool and quiet: Drive with WD GreenPower Technology yield lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives
  • IntelliPower: A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance. Additionally, WD Caviar Green drive consumes less current during startup allowing lower peak loads on systems as they are booted
  • 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
  • Reduced power consumption: WD has reduced power consumption making it possible for energy conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability and energy conservation
  • Perfect for external drives: External drive can eliminate the need for a fan in a high-capacity with a WD Caviar Green drive, the coolest and quietest in its class
  • IntelliSeek: Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration
  • Advanced Format (AF): Technology being adopted by WD and other drive as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities
