Rate & Review

The Western Digital Scorpio Black SATA Hard Drives are designed with top-of-the-line notebook computers in mind, this high performance drive delivers the capacity and speed needed to supercharge a notebook PC without compromising battery life or quiet acoustics.

Please Note: Old stock, original packaging and paperwork is missing. But the drive is sealed within another bag.

With 7200 RPM spin speed, 16 MB cache, and capacities 160 GB, 250 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB and 750 GB, these drives enable you to have the best of both worlds: the capacity and performance of a desktop PC with the convenience and portability of a notebook.

With technologies like Intelli Seek which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption and Secure Park which reduces power by parking the heads during low power idle mode, this drive delivers 5400 RPM equivalent power consumption in a 7200 RPM drive.

WD's Shock Guard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks during shipping, handling, and daily operation. WD's Secure Park 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 shock tolerance.
We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give WD customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems. Technology being adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities. (BPKT models only)

WD's 500 GB 2.5-inch drive offers huge capacity for space-hungry operating systems with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video. In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive Whisper Drive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.
