The 500GB WD5000BPKX WD Black Mobile Hard Drive from Western Digital is a 2.5” (6.35cm) mobile drive suitable for high-performance applications such as photo and video editing, gaming, and power PCs. It is designed for enthusiasts and creative professionals.

Dynamic Cache
WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there is an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.

The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
