The Western Digital 500GB Scorpio Blue 2.5" Internal Hard Drive is designed for use in portable computing solutions, and features a 3 Gbps SATA interface, 5400 RPM rotational speed, and 8 MB buffer size. It can transfer data at speeds up to 3 Gbps (buffer to host) and 136 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. The WhisperDrive technology makes use of seeking algorithms to minimize operational noise. Shock ratings of 350 G / 1000 G (operating / non-operating) ensure that the hard drive can withstand accidental drops.

SecurePark feature safely parks the recording heads and keeps it away from the disk surface during spin up, spin down, as well as when the drive is off, thereby ensuring long term reliability and improved non-operational shock tolerance.

Advanced power management features save power and improve battery life of your laptop. The Scorpio Blue internal hard drive incorporates the Advanced Format technology to increase media format efficiencies, allowing for larger drive capacities.
