  • Whether they are in an external drive or a notebook computer, WD Scorpio Blue SATA drives continue to offer the highest capacity for space-hungry operating systems, like Windows Vista, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video. A slight increase in overall drive height on 1 TB models has enabled 2.5-inch drives to achieve capacities once thought impossible
  • In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden
  • WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD's SecurePark parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long-term reliability due to less head wear, and improved non-operational shock tolerance
  • Ultra-fast 3 Gb/s SATA interface speed yields performance fit for demanding mobile applications
  • We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems
  • Technology being adopted by WD and other drive manufactures to increase media format efficiencies thus enabling large drive capacities. (PVT models only)
