WD Scorpio Blue 5400 RPM 2.5-inch SATA hard drives from Western Digital deliver fast and ultra-quiet performance hand-in-hand with low power consumption. In addition, they are designed with ruggedness, reliability, and data-protection features that actively watch over valuable data. WD Scorpio Blue hard drives are designed for portable digital devices of all kinds, including notebook computers, external storage, and digital media players.

  • newegg Quiet and Low Power Consumption In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD’s exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden.
  • newegg Reliable and Rugged WD’s ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD’s SecurePark parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long-term reliability due to less head wear, and improved non-operational shock tolerance.

3 out of 5 eggswrong specs

Pros: If the 1.5Gb/s is true then this might be good for people with older laptops

Cons: If the 1.5Gb/s is wrong then this might be bad for people with older laptops

Other Thoughts: I was looking at this drive as Newegg advertises it at 1.5Gb/s but cross checking the model number on their picture (WD2500BEVT) with WD support and cross checking the product number (WDBABB2500ANC-NRSN) to WD's Store; They both claim it's a 3.0Gb/s drive. Newegg needs offer a link to report suspected inaccurate postings.

5 out of 5 eggs9.5mm

Pros: Not a review - just adding the fact that it's 9.5mm high - not shown in specs. The height is important for a lot of netbooks (drives thicker than 9.5mm may not fit). Source: http://www.wdc.com/global/products/specs/?driveID=512&language=1

Cons: None I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Newegg should really add "drive height" into the Power Search. This dimension is critically important when choosing a drive for many slimline laptops, almost all netbooks, and PS3 upgrades.

5 out of 5 eggsWD SB hard drive

Pros: Excellent drive, extremely quite in comparison to my other hard drive that I replaced. Good for older laptops, I'm running an Alienware Aurora m9700 and installed with ease. I liked it so much I purchased another one for other hard drive slot. Good price.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Good upgrade from the Fujitsu stock hard drive that came with my computer which is loud and only 80 gigs. Significant improvement. I would recommend this product for older computers since it is only SATA 1.5Gb/s. If you have a newer machine, go for the Western Digital SATA 3 Gb/s.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes it's job, and improves quality of life for laptop

Pros: Good price for the space

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Replaced a corrupted 40GB SATA 1.5 HDD.

ATTENTION: For those who ran into problems installing an OEM Windows XP OS (regardless of the SP), you will need to disable the SATA function in the BIOS. I can't remember what it was called as it's my friend's laptop and I worked on it a while ago. But OEM versions of Windows XP do not have SATA drivers on them, therefore you will need to disable it in the BIOS before installing

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Purchased to replace a bad drive in my friends laptop. Quick easy install, closest to oem but double the space (120 to 250) and a very pleased friend that spent only $60.00

Cons: None Here

Other Thoughts: Prefer for shipping reasons boxed Hard Drives rather than Bare Drive and this one is boxed. Good price and quick shipping makes Newegg # 1
