Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500GB
13 January 2009
Summary: The Scorpio Blue 500GB isn’t just about performance though, since magnetic-based drives will likely always be slower than SSDs. It’s all about capacity. While a drive such as Intel’s 80GB X-25M will raise eyebrows with its 200MB/s-plus read speeds, fitting your life into 80GB is the difficult part. With the Scorpio Blue, even the most demanding data packrats will be satisfied.
Pros: Never run out of space on your notebook again!
Excerpt: The Scorpio Blue range of laptop hard disks has a focus on capacity, leaving the Scorpio Black to cater for those who need high performance, but this 500GB model provides unbeatable capacity and performance. This is because the data is packed more densely on to the disk's platters than lower-capacity models, giving a boost to performance that's just as significant as the Scorpio Black 320GB's faster spin speed.
