The Western Digital WD1200BEVS Scorpio series 120GB 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.

  • newegg SATA 1.5 Gb/s Interface The next-generation SATA interface supports up to 1.5 Gb/s data transfer rates and point-to-point connections to allow the Western Digital Scorpio WD1200BEVS to deliver optimum performance, efficiency, convenience and flexibility.
  • newegg WD WhisperDrive and SoftSeek Technology WhisperDrive technology minimizes noise to virtually below the threshold of human hearing. To cut seek noise, SoftSeek technology streamlines read/write seeking algorithms resulting in more efficient operation.
  • newegg WD ShockGuard Technology ShockGuard technology instantaneously protects the hard drive against damage from bumps and vibrations during operation. This technology enables WD Digital Scorpio drives to achieve industry-leading shock specifications.

5 out of 5 eggsUsed for Xbox 360 HDD

Pros: Great for Xbox HDD

Cons: Wish it could ship preflashed but M$ has the firmware copyrighted.

Other Thoughts: If you want to use this as an Xbox HDD, it's not hard to do but requires moderate computer knowledge to do.

5 out of 5 eggsXBOX 360 Drive Upgrade

Pros: Just purchased this drive to upgrade the drive in my XBOX 360, went pretty smooth ended up having to use my laptop to flash the drive because the program wouldn't see it on my desktop. Other than that very easy wish I had done this a long time ago.

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: I also had to change the sata controller option to native in my BIOS for it to work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks With the 360!

Pros: Works with 360, got it ready to use with Hddhackr in under 2 minutes.

Cons: None yet...

Other Thoughts: Hddhackr v1.00 did not work for me after many attempts, but I tried out v0.91, and it worked on the first try.

5 out of 5 eggsLight woody flavor

Pros: This hard drive was a tasty delight that had a smokey after taste. The platter was especially tangy with a great balance of sweet and sour. The WD Scorpio has a reputation of being a bit too salty but I found the balance was quite pleasing.

Cons: Hard drive was slightly over done and a bit chewy but did not detract from the over all grate taste.

Other Thoughts: Also worked very well in my XBOX 360.

5 out of 5 eggsThe aAbsolute perfect drive for the 360

Pros: The maximum size for a 360 (right now). Cheap when compared to the official, but that isn't Newegg's fault. :)

Cons: For anyone not into modding, this could be a waste of money if you don't extensively look up the procedures behind installing this in a 360.

Other Thoughts: Very small hard drive. Before opening my 360's, I had forgotten how small they made these. Barely even fits in the palm of my hand.

I'm about to order another one for a friend.
