WD Now Shipping 1TB Mobile HDD

I know a lot of you are or have been looking into using a laptop hard drive in your systems due to their improved acoustics over a larger desktop size. Now that it’s in a whopping 1tb flavor, you can even use it without any server/external storage to store content as well. Very impressive.

The Scorpio Blue drives feature WhisperDrive, a technology that makes it one of the quietest 2.5 inch drives on the market. The drive also features ShockGuard which combines firmware and hardware technology to allow the drive to tolerate unexpected shocks and Secure Park which parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up and down. This ensures that the heads never touch the disk and in theory gives the drive a longer life span.
