WD Scorpio Blue

WD Scorpio Blue drives offer high-performance, low power consumption, and cool operation, perfect for notebooks and other portable devices. Pick the drive that suits your needs with the confidence in knowing that all WD Scorpio Blue drives are built to the highest standards of quality and reliability.

Massive capacity

Storage capacity for 2.5-inch form factor drives with standard 9.5 mm height has arrived at a realm once thought to be impossible - up to 1 TB* - giving you all the capacity you need to keep your photos, music and files right there on your notebook.


In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive WhisperDrive™ combines state-ofthe- 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.


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 nonoperational shock tolerance.


WD's ShockGuard™ technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks.

Tested for compatibility

We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab™ and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.

Advanced Format (AF)

Technology being adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers to increase media format efficiencies, thus enabling larger drive capacities. (PVT models only)

5* Excellent
Reviewed by Mark on 24/08/2013
Have used a lot of WD 3.5" drives and all have been excellent; this 2.5" one is no exception. Installed in a Mac Mini and has given great service so far with no noise or fuss - just plugged in and job done.
