24×7 Reliability – These drives are designed to last in high temperature always-on streaming digital audio/video environments such as PVR/DVR and IPTV systems.
Reduced Power Consumption – WD AV drives consume less power up to 40 percent compared to 7200 RPM hard drives. Lower power means less heat and greater reliability.
SilkStream – Optimized for smooth, continuous digital video playback of up to 16 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.
Advanced Format (AF) Technology adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is more efficient media format that enables increased densities.
Quiet – Noise levels have been minimized to less than one sone – virtually below the threshold of human hearing.
