WD gloats about second-generation Caviar Green Drive

Western Digital didn't have too many comrades on the green bandwagon back in July of last year, but now it's just one amongst legions. Nevertheless, it's keeping its eco-friendly membership badge up to date with the second-generation Caviar Green Drive. Said HDD features the firm's own GreenPower technology to "significantly reduce power consumption" compared to those traditional energy-sucking alternatives. The freshened platform is based on WD's 333 GB/platter technology with 32MB cache, with sizes ranging from 500GB to 1TB. According to the company, this one consumes up to 20-percent less power and offers a 10-percent uptick in performance over the previous Green Drive, and best of all, the 1TB edition (WD10EADS) can be ordered up right now for $219 (MSRP).
