The Western Digital Caviar Green WDBAAY0015HNC-NRSN is a 1.5TB hard drive that is a member of the 2010 generation of the Caviar Green hard drive line by Western Digital. It is a SATA II drive, with write speeds of 3.0Gb/s. Like other Caviar Green drives, 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. It has a large 32MB cache size, but does not have the newer and faster SATA 6 Gb/s speed. When compared to the current Caviar Green drives, it offers the same write speed, but does not have the IntelliPower RPM control or the 64 MB cache size.
