Edited by Zeid Nasser WD 160 GB mobile hard drive for notebook? Western Digital (WD), a leading hard disk drive manufacturer, has announced the launch of its 160 GB WD Scorpio 2.5-inch hard Serial ATA (SATA) drives. The drives employ perpendicular magnetic recording technology (PMR) to achieve the high capacity in the small form factor. WD Scorpio drives deliver the specifications and features that meet demands specific to notebook PCs and portable storage devices, such as WD PassportA: quiet operation, high shock tolerance and low power consumption. The new WD Scorpio drives expand the company's breadth of 2.5-inch mobile hard drive offerings to capacity points ranging from 40 GB to 160 GB.With PMR technology, the magnetization of each data bit is aligned vertically to the spinning disk, rather than longitudinally as has been the case in hard drive technology for decades. This enables more data on a given disk than is possible with conventional longitudinal recording, and provides a platform for future expansion of hard drive densities. WD's WhisperDrive technology with SoftSeek algorithms helps make WD Scorpio the quietest 2.5 inch drive available. Its ShockGuardao technology combines firmware and hardware advancements to protect the drive mechanics and delicate platter surface.Palm Treo750v.?
