Running out of space on your lappy? We look at WD's top dog in their Scorpio series of 2.5" notebook hard drives.

Final Thoughts

 

Western Digital's latest installment of the Scorpio series drives is a great addition, especially for those looking for larger capacities for single drive situations like Notebooks. If you want to set up larger capacity RAID arrays in small form servers, these drives are also very good. However, its performance is still the same as the first Scorpio we have looked at. We were hoping to see some improvement, but this wasn't to be.

 

Western Digital's implementation for its notebook drives have been extremely good. We haven't seen anything to discourage us from buying one, however, with 7200RPM drives now making their way in, we hope to see Western Digital's next series of drives incorporate this new rotation speed along with larger cache sizes to help take advantage of the SATA 2.5 300MB/s transfer rates. Till then, the Scorpio fits the bill just about right.
