For the most part the Scorpio Blue Series products are for notebook installations, but from time to time they do make it to desktops. We're going to test the Scorpio Blue 1TB 5,400 RPM drive in one of our big bad desktop systems.
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34
ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.
The Scorpio Blue line isn't Western Digital's fastest drive series - that designation goes to the Black Series. The Blue Series does offer a very good value, power consumption rate and the highest capacities. In ATTO we found our 1TB sample consistently delivering nearly 120MB/s read speed and almost 110MB/s write speed.
