The Western Digital WD600VERTL Scorpio series 60GB hard drive offers an outstanding combination of speed and low power consumption. Using a highly efficient motor that spins at 5400RPM while only using as much power as slower 4200RPM drives, it gives you faster seek times and longer batter life.
Reliability is enhanced by WD's ShockGuard™ technology that protects the moving parts of the drive surfaces from shocks and WD's DuraStep Ramp™ locks the heads in a secure position away from the disk to provide additional protection when the drive is not in use. These features combined with the rigid stainless steel top that can withstand 1.5 times the industry average make this one of the most durable drives in the industry.
The exclusive WhisperDrive with SoftSeek make this the quietest 2.5” drive, regardless of spin speed.
This drive is wonderful
This review is from: WD Scorpio WD600VERTL 60GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive Retail
Pros: very quiet, simple to install
Cons: none, It'sa well built drive
Other Thoughts: I recently bought one of these to replace my broken Toshiba 60 Meg drive taken out of my Compaq Presario Laptop. I formatted and installed XP Pro in a matter of minutes. I actually purchased the OEM version. Why not? OEM version is nearly $40 cheaper and I did not have to throw away any boxes or data/installation sheets because with oem you pay for just the drive in a static proof clear bag. Did I say just how quiet this new drive was?
