The new hard drive features Western Digital ShockGuard Technology, protecting your drive from up to 400Gs of shock due to an accidental drop while on the move. The 2.5-inch single-platter drive is available in 500 GB and 320 GB densities and is compatible with standard 9.5 mm notebook slots. The drive also boasts extremely low power consumption, and Western Digital's WhisperDrive Technology to ensure silence.
“Consumers want thin and light personal computers, but the limited storage capacity of SSD-based notebooks forces them to pick and choose what files to bring from their library,” said Matt Rutledge, vice president and general manager for WD client storage products. “With the release of the new WD Scorpio Blue 7mm mobile hard drives, WD is able to offer capacity, reliability and data protection features combined with excellent power management all in a slim form factor perfect for thin and light notebooks.”
Western Digital Scorpio Blue 7 mm hard drives are protected by a two-year limited warranty. Early pricing starts with the 500 GB model at $99.99 and the 320 GB model at $79.99. For more information visit Western Digital's product page.
