Powered directly through the USB cable the WD Elements Portable require no power adapter, adding to the ease with which they can be transported and meaning your data transfer is a quick and hassle-free experience. Should your computer be one of the few which limits power to the USB port, an optional cable is available (sold separately).
USB 2.0 is the industry standard peripheral connection for most Windows-based computers. This connection transfers data at a maximum rate of 480 Mb/s. Sustained data transfer rates, usually from 10 to 30 MB/s, vary depending on many factors including the type of device, data being transferred, and computer system speed. If your USB port is an earlier version, USB 1.0 or 1.1, you can use a USB 2.0 hard drive, but transfer rates default to the slowest version. If you don’t know the version of your computer’s USB ports, refer to your computer documentation or contact the manufacturer.
Weighing only a few ounces, this small drive will fit easily into a pocket or purse, allowing you to effortlessly transport all your data when on the go. Pre-formatted for use with Windows-based computers the Elements Portable drive can be easily re-formatted for use with Macs.
Environmental sustainability is important to us at Western Digital. One of the best ways we can make a positive impact on the environment is to offer products that consume less electricity. To that end, WD has designed eco-friendly hard drives with WD GreenPower Technology for WD desktop, enterprise, CE and external hard drive products.
Based on extensive customer input toward supporting ENERGY STAR 4.0 compliance and incorporating the latest in engineering technology we developed this platform to bring more energy efficient hard drive options to our customers.
As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. Currently available 1 TB hard drives have a typical power consumption rating greater than 13.5 watts. WD has designed the first 8.89 cm (3.5-inch) hard drives that deliver power savings as the primary attribute. IntelliPower and IntelliPark are two examples of technologies that enable the WD GreenPower Technology platform.
A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate, and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance. For each drive model, WD may use a different, invariable RPM.
Drives featuring WD GreenPower Technology consume less current during start up allowing more drives to spin up simultaneously resulting in faster system readiness which is a big plus for enterprise customers.
Delivers lower power consumption by automatically unloading recording heads during idle to reduce aerodynamic drag, and disengages read/write channel electronics.
Packaged in a minimised eco-friendly, recyclable packaging made from recycled materials, the WD Elements Desktop is pre-formatted for PCs. Designed for use with Windows-based computers, it can also be easily reformatted for use with Macs.
