Economical hard drives for home use

The WD Greens are part of the WD hard drive family which consists of five different colours: blue, green, purple, red and black. They all have different purposes and while they are all quite similar, they are all fine tuned to perform a particular task or be fit for a certain type of application. The WD Greens are designed to be eco-friendly, they consume the least power, make the least noise and generate the least heat, which is good if you are looking for the most energy efficient drives. It features Intellipower which is WD's technology which calibrates an optimal rpm speed between 5400 and 7200 rpm in order to obtain the best performance power ratio specific to the drive. The WD green drives are not suited for constant reading and writing though, if you are constantly using your drives and writing data, the purples will be perfect for you. Greens are mainly used for backup drives which are not used so frequently, you can still use them for general home use though. If you are after an energy efficient drive which won't be active all the time, you may want to consider the WD Greens.

The advantage of cool & quiet

Heat has a large impact on the overall reliability of a HDD's life over time. It can also lead to increased power consumption, the requirement of additional fans and increased fan operation, increased noise levels and the increased chance of failure. WD Green drives come equipped with WD GreenPower Technology which allows the drive to operate cooler with increased overall reliability.


Power management with performance

Best-in-class power management, reduced heat output, and next-generation technologies such as IntelliSeek offer a perfect balance of performance and power, making WD Green a leader in performance when compared to the competition's 6 TB HDD.


Reliability with an increased lifespan

Quiet acoustics, reduced vibration and advanced 4K HDD formatting makes WD Green a stronger solution when compared to the competition and perfect for PCs and external drive applications. WD Green also features a Dual Stage Actuator, which delivers higher precision motion for 2X the data performance and increases drive reliability.


Capacity storage

Large capacity offerings of up to 6 TBs help expand customer capabilities and application usage of WD Green including primary installations in desktop PCs, as secondary storage in external cases or as reliable backup storage.

The WD advantage

WD puts our products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. This testing ensures our products consistently meet the highest quality and reliability standards of the WD brand. WD also has a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 helpful articles as well as helpful software and utilities. Our customer support lines have longer operational hours to ensure you get the help you need when you need it. Our toll-free customer support lines are here to help or you can access our WD Support site for additional details.

Next-generation technology

Reduced power consumption, improved data tracking, and WD GreenPower Technology all help to improve the overall reliability of WD Green making it an efficient solution that lowers your total cost of ownership. NoTouch Ramp Load Technology also protects the drive by ensuring the recording head never touches the disk media, reducing wear and tear to the head and increases drive reliability.

Easy upgrade

Acronis True Image, available as a download on the WD Support website, enables you to clone or copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system and applications to get all the benefits of a new drive.

Recommended use

WD Green storage is tested and recommended for primary use in desktop and All-in-One PCs, as secondary storage for archiving, in external cases or as reliable backup storage.
