As a member of the Caviar Green product line, it has a number of "green" features, such as low power consumption and quiet spinning, including quite spin-ups, making it a good drive to be used in a server or a computer with a small power supply. It has a large 32MB cache size, but does not have the newer and faster SATA 6 Gb/s speed. While it does offer the same write speed as current Caviar Green drives, but does not have the same IntelliPower RPM control or the 64 MB cache size.
