The Western Digital 320GB WD Scorpio Black SATA 2.5" Hard Drive features ample storage, quiet operation, a 16 MB cache and low power consumption. With a 320GB storage capacity, SATA interface and transfer speeds up to 3 Gb/s, it's ideal for demanding mobile applications that require high performance.

The Scorpio Black benefits from ShockGuard technology that protects the drive mechanics from impacts. It also uses SecurePark, which prevents the recording heads from resting on the disk during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This results in a more reliable drive due to the limited head wear. The Scorpio Black is also tested rigorously to ensure compatibility with most systems.

SATA Interface
Ultra-fast 3 Gb/s SATA interface speed , 7200 RPM spin speed and 16 MB cache yield performance fit for demanding mobile applications
Great Storage
With a 320GB storage capacity for a 2.5" form factor drive, the WD Scorpio Black offers the highest capacity for space-hungry operating systems with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video
Intelligent Protection
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
WD's exclusive WhisperDrive technology yields ultra-quiet acoustics during operation and keeps the drive cool, both of which make for more enjoyable mobile computing
Low Power Consumption
Innovative algorithms optimize the way the drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption
