Scorpio Blue "WD5000LPVT" 500GB HDD




Our Scorpio Blue was delivered to us in the bare drive form. The new Scorpio Blue shares the same aesthetic design we have come to recognize, the 500GB capacity listed across the top left. In the center of the drive, Western Digital recognizes the Advanced Format offering instructions to align the drive within OS's that do not natively support.




The back of the drive houses a green PCB with the SATA and power connections at the bottom.




The drives power and data connections have been placed in the standard configuration, insuring wide compatibility.




Firing up our calibrated scale, we measured the Scorpio Blues weight at 92.3 grams.




At the drives thickest point we measured it at 6.6mm with our Starrett 799.
