The Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue 2.5" 1TB SATA Hard Drive is the new and small drive that offers a high-performance, low power consumption, and cool operation that is perfect for most laptops and portable devices. While 1TB is not the largest capacity on the market for a drive of the 2.5-inch design, most current 1TB or larger drives, including the previous 1TB WD Scorpio Blue, come in the 12.5mm thickness standard and therefore are not compatible with most existing laptops. This 1TB Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue is the first 1TB internal 2.5-inch hard drive for laptops that has the same 9.5mm thickness as drives of smaller capacities.

The Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue delivers best-in-class performance with power requirements comparable to much slower drives. In addition, you'll get the smallest (height 9.5mm) and quietest 2.5-inch drive on the market, and the one with ruggedness, reliability, and data-protection features that actively watch over valuable data. The Western Digital WD10JPVT has a standard 8 MB cache, spindle speed of 5400 RPM for fast performance and a low power consumption that yields longer battery life and increased overall reliability.
Utilising the most technologically advanced material available on the market, the Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue is able to execute a minimum of 600,000 load/unload cycles without contamination, up to twice the performance of its competitors!
- Massive capacity - Storage capacity for 2.5-inch form factor drives has arrived at a realm once thought to be impossible - up to 1 TB for mobile storage. Whether they are in an external drive or a notebook computer, this Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue SATA drive continues to offer the highest capacity for space-hungry operating systems with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.
- Quiet - In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimise the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden.
- Reliable and rugged - WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. 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 non-operational shock tolerance.
- Fast and efficient - Ultra-fast 3 Gb/s SATA interface speed yields performance fit for demanding mobile applications.
- Advanced Format Technology - Technology being adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers to increase media format efficiencies, thus enabling larger drive capacities.
- Tested for compatibility - We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
