Western Digital's Scorpio is the first 250-GB notebook hard drive. We compare it to eight competing devices and rank it in our Interactive Notebook HDD Charts.

Hello,
nice review! By the way, i can confirm Samsung has been shipping the HM250JI some time. I am using it in my Dell D620 since one week.

Well,

i can only compare it to my former Seagate Momentus 5400.3 SATA 160GB (ST9160821AS). I feel the HM250JI to be slightly more silent and less hot but could not note a difference in performance.
