WD Scorpio Blue Features

  • Massive Capacity: Storage capacity for 2.5" form factor drive with standard 9.5 mm height has arrived at a realm once thought to be impossible - giving you all the capacity you need to keep your photos, music and files right there on your notebook
  • Quiet: In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's 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
  • 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 nonoperational shock tolerance
  • Tested for Compatibility: WD performs tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in their FIT lab and Mobile Compatibility lab to give the customers confidence that the drives will work in their systems
  • Rugged: WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks
  • Advanced Format (AF): Technology being adopted by WD and other drive to increase media format efficiencies, thus enabling larger drive capacities
