Hard disk drives are today\'s fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:\
\
- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!\
\
- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.\
\
- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

The official marketing text of Western Digital Scorpio SATA Hard Drive 120GB Serial ATA hard disk drive as supplied by the manufacturer
WD Scorpio delivers best-in-class performance with low power requirements comparable to much slower notebook drives. In addition, you'll get the quietest 2.5-inch drive on the market with real-time data protection technology to help keep your data safe.

Key Features

Fast and efficient - Spins at 5400 RPM for fast performance but has power specs similar to slower 4200 RPM drives. Low power consumption yields increased reliability.

Quiet - WD's exclusive WhisperDrive™ technology with SoftSeek™ algorithms make this the quietest 2.5-inch hard drive, regardless of spin speed.

Reliable - WD's ShockGuard™ technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD's DuraStep Ramp™ locks the heads in a secure position away from the disk to provide another layer of protection when the drive is not in use. Utilizing the most technologically advanced material available, the drive can perform a minimum of 600,000 load/unload cycles without contamination - up to twice the performance of its competitors.

Rugged - WD Scorpio's rigid stainless steel top cover withstands more than 5 pounds of pressure - nearly 1.5 times the industry average - without pinching vital internal components.

Ideal For

Portable digital devices of all kinds, including notebook computers, portable external storage, digital audio, GPS systems, and tablet PCs.
