WD updates Green line with 6 TB drives

A few days ago  Western Digital updated its Red line with the most spacious to date 6 TB drives and now it seems it is time for the Green line to get the same – WD has presented two new Green drives that up the line capacity to 6 TB too.

The two new drives arrive with capacities of 5 TB (WD50EZRX) and 6 TB (WD60EZRX). The drives do not come with new technologies and therefore they support SATA 3.0 and have 64 MB of cache and 7200 rpm of rotational speed; no anti-vibration technologies have been implemented either although the new drives support the Intellipower technology for better power efficiency and lower heat dissipation. In addition users should not expect to get WD Green Pro drives, similar to the new WD Red Pro Series. As with other WD Green drives, the newcomers are best suited for mass storage in PCs or in external closures.

The new 6 TB hard drive can be yours for USD 269.99. We do not have the price of the 5 TB model but it should be lower.
