WD Scorpio delivers best-in-class performance with low power consumption and
cool operation. In addition, you'll get one of the quietest 2.5-inch drives on
the market with real-time data protection technology to help keep your data
Massive capacity - Whether they are in an external drive or a
notebook computer, WD’s 250 GB 2.5-inch drives offer the most available
capacity for space-hungry operating systems like Windows Vista™, plus plenty
of room left over for photos, music, and video.
Fast and efficient - With 5400 RPM spin speed and 12 ms access time,
even the most demanding customer will appreciate the performance achieved by
WD Scorpio drives.
Quiet - In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD’s exclusive
WhisperDrive™ combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the
quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize
the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power
consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden.
Reliable and Rugged - WD's ShockGuard™ technology protects the drive
mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD's SecurePark™ parks the
recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the
drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface
resulting in improved long term reliability due to less head wear, and
improved non- operational shock tolerance.
