The 250 GB Scorpio Blue SATA 2.5" Mobile Hard Drive from WD caters to the requirements of big capacities for portable computing. Build to the highest standards of quality and reliability, it offers solid-performance, ultra-quiet operation and low-power use for portable digital devices of all kinds.

Massive Capacity
Storage capacity for 2.5" form factor drives with standard 9.5mm height has arrived at a realm once thought to be impossible - giving you all the capacity you need to keep your photos, music and files right there on your notebook.
Ultra Quiet
In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive WhisperDrive technology yields one of the quietest 2.5" hard drives on the market.
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.
Tested for Compatibility
WD performs tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in their FIT lab and Mobile Compatibility lab to give the customers confidence that the drives will work in their systems.
WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks.

          Comments about WD 250 GB Scorpio Blue SATA 2.5" Mobile Hard Drive:

          I thought the HD in my laptop had died. I replaced it with this, but the laptop is still dead. Unfortunately, once opened, can't return this new drive. Too bad. I'm still a big fan of B&H, though.
