Western Digital ships 500GB Scorpio notebook HDD

Posted on Friday, September 12 2008 @ 22:31:38 CEST by

Western Digital unveiled 400GB and 500GB 2.5" Scorpio-series notebook HDDs. Both models spin at 5400RPM and use 3Gb/s SATA. The WD Scorpio Blue 500GB is available for $220, while the 400GB model ships for $190.
WD Scorpio Blue delivers high-performance with a 3 Gb/s transfer rate, while including proprietary features that make the drive extraordinarily quiet, while running at cool operating temperatures. The WD Scorpio Blue 500 GB is the highest capacity 2.5-inch, standard form-factor (9.5mm) hard drive shipping-to-date, and is developed for use in OEM notebook platforms that offer the highest storage capacities to the market.

"WD continues to provide the mobile market with high-capacity storage everywhere consumers and business professionals travel," said Jim Morris, WD's vice president and general manager of notebook storage. "Notebook system manufacturers continue to improve performance, while adding data-hungry features. The WD Scorpio Blue 400 GB and 500 GB hard drives provide the capacity needed to maximize the latest features and functions available in today's notebook computers, while relying on WD's exceptional reliability."
