The new CoolSpin drive uses motor speed optimization to provide a unique balance of performance, power, and acoustics. The motor spins slower to reduce noise and power utilization making the drive produce only 2.4 bels during operation and consume only 3.3 watts or less at idle. Both of the drives will debut in Q4.
