Overall, WD Green Power Hard Drive meets the performance requirements of most applications while delivering significantly less power consumption. If your application requires mostly sequential read/writes, then the hard drive will perform comparable to a 7200 RPM drive. However, if your application performs mostly random mode operations, then the performance may drop by about 10% because of the latency time. If the WD Green Power product does not meet your performance needs then WD have their Raid Edition line of 7200 RPM Enterprise drives that will deliver the performance you need at the industry’s best reliability.
