Western Digital Scorpio Black 750GB 2.5-inch Hard Drive Review - Final Thoughts

Desktop level performance for your notebook. You can add to that desktop capacity too. WD is onto something here.

Final Thoughts

 

Western Digital's claims of desktop like performance in a notebook drive might not be the most accurate statement, but we would agree that the Scorpio Black gives the highest performance available from a platter based notebook HDD. The Scorpio Black 750GB drive that we looked at today delivers the same level of performance that we saw in desktop drives two years ago. This is something we can't say about the competition at this time. The Scorpio Black is the fastest notebook drive you can use today.

 

When it comes to pricing you might expect the fastest platter based notebook drive to also have the highest price, but that isn't the case. With an e-tail price at Newegg of just 109.99 USD the Scorpio Black is far from the highest priced 750GB drive on the market. When it really comes down to it, the Scorpio Black 750GB is quite a bargain.

 

With 750GB of capacity users will be able to keep more data on their notebook than ever before. With more users ditching their desktop in favor of portable computers the need for more storage is on the rise. As we move our lives deeper into the digital realm the need for even more storage capacity will increase. The Western Digital Scorpio Black is a step in the right direction and will allow you to store more data than any notebook SSD, no matter the cost, can offer.
