1.0TB 5400RPM Scorpio Blue Hard Drive

2.5" hard drive | SATA 3.0Gb/s | 8MB Cache
Performance. Efficient. Mobile.
Western Digital’s Scorpio Blue Hard Drive offers high performance, low-power consumption and easy portability. Scorpio Blue doesn’t just leave a small physical footprint, its cooling system and near-silent operation separate it from the crowd. It’s perfect for people with notebooks or other portable devices that depend on high performance while on the go.

To make drive selection simple, Western Digital gathered all their popular 5400 RPM WD Scorpio drives under one umbrella called “WD Scorpio Blue.” Built to award-winning quality standards, these drives offer a full range of performance features.
Is This Thing On?
Scorpio Blue is so quiet, the person sitting at the next table in the café will probably wonder why you are tapping away while your computer is off. Meanwhile, you will be getting your work done without being bothered by the “whrrr” of an incessantly spinning hard drive.

WD’s exclusive WhisperDrive makes Scorpio Blue one of the quietest 2.5” drives on the market. The same technology that makes it run so quietly also significantly improves its energy consumption. Not only will your drive be nearly silent, your notebook will have an immense battery life.
Big Capacity for Your Big Ideas
Scorpio Blue SATA drives are available in capacities up to 1.0TB for notebooks and external devices. The drive is perfect for users who depend on robust software for their livelihood but still need enough room for their music, photos and video files.
Brains With a Side of Brawn
Scorpio Blue is rugged enough to pass the test of time. WD’s ShockGuard technology protects the drive’s components from electrical shocks. Their SecurePark technology ensures that the drive’s recording head never touches the disk surface, resulting in less wear and tear and long-term reliability.
So Fast You’re Never Furious
Even the most demanding professionals will be pleased with Scorpio Blue’s performance. Its 5400rpm spin speed will keep your software running smoothly, and its 3Gb/s SATA interface speed make transferring data a breeze.
Plays Nice with Others
WD does not put a product on the market until it is thoroughly tested in their FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility lab. Scorpio Blue is no exception. Before it works its way into your notebook or mobile device, you already know it has been tested on hundreds of systems and a plethora of platforms. You can be confident Scorpio Blue will get along with your system as easily as an old friend.
