Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVE 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache PATA 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: High capacity.

Cons: Runs hot.

Other Thoughts: Took down my IBM A31p laptop. I had it installed as the 3rd HDD in the right-side ultrabay, with 3 partitions, no OS, data only. Seemed to run fine, but then the computer had trouble rebooting. Finally died. I was able to get the computer fixed -- I/O controller on the Mobo had failed. When it came back, screen started blinking, got "battery failure" msgs even tho no battery was installed, etc. Finally tracked it down to the WD 250. Put it in left bay generates a "no operating system found" error; computer thinks the drive is a floppy with an OS on it. Had a WD 120 in same bay on another computer with no problem. There is no documentation anywhere about this. DO NOT USE as a 3rd internal HDD. It works fine in an outboard enclosure by Firewire or USB.
