1TB Laptop HDD from Western Digital is here!
Had lunch with reps for Western Digital Philippines today and they gave me this laptop HDD to check out and was surprised to see that it’s the new 1TB 2.5″ Scorpion Blue (the largest capacity available).
This 9.5mm 1TB Western Digital Scorpio Blue (5400rpm, 8MB buffer cache) was announced just last July. This one uses the standard drive height so it’s more laptop-oriented. Early benchmark results from Hot Hardware showed pretty good results.
When I asked for details, they could not give me any specifics (especially the retail price) but promised it should be out in stores by next week (we’ll just update this post once I get the SRP). In the US, it’s around $140, so it should be around Php6,000 when it hits the stores.
If you fancy bigger storage for your desktop PC at home, WD also has a 6TB external storage worth Php20k here.
Disclosure: WD reps gave me this 1TB HDD for free.
