The Fast Forward Video 320 GB Scorpio Blue Internal Hard Drive from Western Digital (2.5") is designed for use with the DigiDeck DVR systems,and features a SATA 3 Gbps interface, 8 MB data buffer and 5400 RPM rotational speed . It can transfer data at speeds up to 3 Gbps (buffer to host) and 116 MB/s (host to drive). In addition, the hard drive offers 5.5 ms average latency and 4 sec average ready time.
ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks, while the WhisperDrive technology makes use of the seeking algorithms to minimize the operation noise. The SecurePark feature parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off, ensuring that the recording head does not come in contact with the disk surface. This feature offers long-term reliability of the hard drive due to less head wear and improved non-operational shock tolerance.
Advanced power management features of the Scorpio Blue Hard Drive saves power and improves battery life. Shock resistance of up to 1000G helps the drive withstand accidental drops.
2.5" form factor with 0.37" (9.5 mm) height makes the drive suitable for use with DigiDeck DVR systems
