Critical Design Flaw Found in WD Caviar Green HDDs

  1. It has come to our attention that Western Digital's Caviar Green HDDs
    suffer from a critical design flaw caused by an aggressive power-saving
    feature. Western Digital has developed a new technology called
    Intellipark (aka Idle 3 mode) and it is designed to reduce power
    consumption, in part by positioning the HDD's heads in a park position
    and turning off unnecessary electronics after 8 seconds of inactivity.

    Personally I wouldn't eat green caviar.
    It's just a personal thing mind you.
