    Cool and Quiet: WD has developed innovative ways to keep these drives cool while in operation, and their WhisperDrive technology minimizes noise to near-silent levels. SoftSeek technology also helps reduce seek noise for a more efficient and quiet operation.

    NoTouch Ramp Load Technology: Available on capacities of 120 GB and above, this technology ensures that the recording head never touches the disk media, resulting in less wear and better drive protection during transit.

    IntelliSeek: Available on capacities of 120 GB and above, this technology calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
