Western Digital Scorpio Blue 120 GB,Internal,5400 RPM,2.5" (WD1200BEVE) Hard Drive

Product description

Product Description
The Western Digital Scorpio dishes out fast performance, while maintaining an energy efficient operation. Boasting 8 MB in buffer memory, this Western Digital hard drive has a PATA interface with a data transfer rate of 100 Mbs. With PATA being a standard in the computer hardware industry for well over a decade, it is an internal hard drive that perfectly suits the storage needs of older computer systems. On the power consumption front, advanced power management capabilities and seeking algorithms help to assure both energy efficient operation and extended battery life. Fancy amenities aside, the Western Digital Scorpio was made to store digital data, which is something it does quite well. 120 GB gives the user an internal hard drive with plenty of room to save thousands of songs and images, countless hours of movies, and scores of video games. This Western Digital hard drive also has a reputation for being one of the quietest options on the market of 2.5-inch hard drives, a plus that can be attributed to the manufacturer’s patented WhisperDrive technology. The Western Digital Scorpio is ideal for laptops, netbooks, and even external enclosures.

Western Scropio 120 gb External Hard Drive

Created: 24/04/09
Although this 120gb hard drive only provides 111gb storage, it is fast, quiet and very reliable. The new plastic case with silicon protectors is a marked improvement over the old metal cases at half the weight. The 10 inch supplied USB cord is a little to short for convenience. Overall, I rate this unit as BEST BANG FOR THE BUCKS and recommend it for all levels of use.

If you are looking to extend the useful life of an older laptop and save a little money, this drive may be for you. At 5400 RPM, 120GB, and 8MB of cache, it won't set any performance records but may be adequate for your purposes. I needed to add storage and memory to an older laptop (Acer 3000) in order to run multiple virtual machines while I migrate from Microsoft to Linux. 120GB provided plenty of room for Xubuntu, VirtualBox, XP, and all required applications. Drive performance is more than adequate and offers good price performance for my computing requirements.

These Hard Drives go fast and I was lucky to win one at a reasonable price. The Hard Drive was already formatted and loaded Windows and other programs with no problem. Seems the RPM speed is fast!

Used Laptop Hard drive

Created: 01/04/10
I purchased a used laptop computer hard drive on E-Bay.
I wanted a new hard drive, but couldn't afford a new one.
I won it on bid and saved probably 40.00 from the new price.
It's important to see the actual picture of the hard drive to insure it is the right hard drive for your laptop. You should always consultant the specifications for your computer before purchasing a used part.
E-Bay has some outstanding values from excellent vendors when it comes to used laptop computer parts.

Quick to upload, no problems. Wish I would have gotten more memory, but if I do buy a bigger one, it'll be another western digital.
