Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive Review

The Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1TB




Our sample drive arrived in OEM fashion, so we don't have the WD retail package to show you today. I think most people have seen the retail packages before at stores like Best Buy and Fry's.


Western Digital fits quite a bit of information on the drive's label. Here we see the capacity size, model and serial number, build date and some numbers that we don't recognize.




All of the components are mounted on the other side of the PCB, so there really isn't much to look at here.




The view from the side shows us that the side screw positions are where they should be.




The SATA power and data connectors are also where they should be. With all of the hardware positioned as it should, you won't have any problems installing the Scorpio Blue in your notebook or drive sled.
