Nowadays, many people prefer to buy laptop computer than desktop computer because laptop is more portable. However, due to the size limit, laptop generally has less disk storage than desktop computer.
In order to satisfy laptop users’ disk space requirement, Western Digital announced the new WD Scorpio Blue 2.5-inch notebook drive with 1TB (1000GB) disk capacity.
The new WD Scorpio Blue 1 TB hard drive utilizes 500 GB-per-platter areal density and is now available in the highest capacity for 2.5-inch hard drives in the industry-standard 9.5 mm, two-platter (2-disk) form factor.
WD Scorpio Blue Features Highlights:
- Low power consumption – Advanced power management features and algorithms optimize the way the drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption.
- Cool and quiet – In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD’s exclusive WhisperDrive technology yields one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.
- Reliable – 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.
- Shock Tolerant – WD’s ShockGuard technology, now increased to a best-in-market 400Gs shock specification, protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks.
