With Massive capacities of up to 1 TB giving you all the capacity you need to keep your photos, music and files right there on your notebook. Low power consumption and state-of-the-art seeking algorithms optimize the way the drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption. Ultra cool and quiet is what you want in a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive Whisper Drive technology delivers one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These drives are available in multiple z-heights including the 9.5 mm industry standard, 7 mm for use in thin notebooks and compatible with mainstream systems, and 12.5 mm primarily for external enclosures. 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. WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. 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. Advanced Format (AF) Technology adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers to increase media format efficiencies, thus enabling larger drive capacities. (PVT models only)
