Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Western Digital's Scorpio Black line has been around for several years and is the company's performance 2.5" product. Each year Western Digital adds to the series bringing more features, advanced technology and increased capacity size. The current flagship that we are looking at today has a maximum capacity size of 750GB, advanced 4K file system, 7,200 RPM platters, 16MB cache and an industry leading 5 year warranty.
The z height for the latest Scorpio Black is 9.5mm, what we would consider a standard notebook drive. We've seen other Western Digital 2.5" drives reach 1TB capacity size, but those use the 12mm height, a format used almost exclusively in enterprise applications.
Western Digital's specifications don't include any performance guarantees, but with the large cache, 7,200 RPM platters and SATA 3G interface we should see benchmark results on par with many 3.5" desktop drives. Western Digital does claim the new Scorpio Black delivers desktop like performance for a notebook.
After looking online we were able to find the Western Digital Scorpio Black 750GB drive at Newegg for only 109.99 USD. At this time there are not many 2.5" high capacity notebook drives using 7,200 RPM platters, but the Scorpio Black is far from the most expensive out there, even though it is the newest.
