Western Digital Scorpio Black Exclusive features:

  • IntelliSeek – IntelliSeek technology calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
  • SecurePark -WD’s SecurePark parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long term reliability due to less head wear, and improved shock tolerance.
  • ShockGuard- WD’s ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks during shipping and handling and in daily operation.
  • Free-fall Sensor -As an added layer of protection, if the drive (or the system it’s in) is dropped while in use, WD’s free-fall sensor detects that the drive is falling and, in less than 200 milliseconds, parks the head off the disks to help prevent damage and data loss.
  • WhisperDrive- WD’s exclusive WhisperDrive technology combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms that result in one of the quietest 2.5-inch drives on the market.
  • “In today’s busy and on-the-go lifestyle, notebook systems play an increasingly pivotal role in the home office and are relied upon to efficiently run sophisticated applications,” said Sharad Srivastava, Director Sales (India and South Asia), Western Digital. “High performance, high-capacity hard drives are a key ingredient to notebooks as system manufacturers continue to add data-hungry features that allow users to fully benefit from the latest computing technologies.”

    The new Scorpio Black hard drives will be available in the Indian market at the price up to Rs. 11,250 (depending on capacity and features).
