Western Digital launches 160GB notebook HDD

Posted on Wednesday, September 13 2006 @ 03:30:29 CEST by

Western Digital today announced it is in volume production of its 160 GB WD Scorpio 2.5-inch Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives. The drives employ perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology to achieve high capacity in the small form factor. WD Scorpio drives deliver the specifications and features that meet demands specific to notebook PCs and portable storage devices, such as WD Passport(R): quiet operation, high shock tolerance and low power consumption.

The new WD Scorpio drives expand the company's breadth of 2.5-inch mobile hard drive offerings to capacity points ranging from 40 GB to 160 GB. The company entered the mobile hard drive market in Oct. 2004.

WD Scorpio 160 GB drives are available for $179.99 USD.
