WD offers high-capacity hard drives
Dubai, July 30, 2009
Western Digital (WD), one of the storage industry's pioneers, has launched two new mobile hard drives that offer the highest capacities to date for mobile storage applications and notebooks.
The highlight is a one terabyte model – the industry’s highest-capacity 2.5-inch drive available. Industry-leading 333 GB-per-platter technology enables the new WD Scorpio Blue SATA 2.5-inch hard drives to offer mobile storage device and notebook users an enormous 1 TB capacity. A 750 GB WD Scorpio Blue model also will be available.
The WD Scorpio Blue 750 GB and 1 TB hard drives have a 12.5 mm form factor and are ideally suited for use in portable storage solutions, such as the newly released My Passport Essential SE portable USB drives.
Other applications include select notebooks and small form factor desktop PCs, where quiet and cool operation are important. Both WD Scorpio Blue drives deliver high-performance with 3 gigabits per second transfer rate.
“The convergence of the growing mobile computing and digital media trends produces demand for desktop-like capacities in portable devices,” said Saif Khwaja sales director, Western Digital, Middle East & Africa.
“Our new WD Scorpio Blue drives enable people to take even more of their digital collections with them wherever they go and, realizing the value of their data, back up their notebooks on their My Passport drives,” he added.
WD Scorpio Blue hard drives offer high-performance, low power consumption and cool operation in portable applications, said a statement. They are designed with WD features to be reliable and shock resistant while also delivering industry-leading capacity and performance. – TradeArabia News Service
