WD launches 1TB 2.5-inch drive

Written by Fudzilla staff

A bit on the thick side

WD has
started shipping the world's first 1TB 2.5-inch drive, part of the WD Scorpio Blue series, as well as a 750GB drive.

In spite of an industry leading 333MB per platter, the new drives still end up a bit chubby, and both are 12.5mm thick, making them unsuitable for most notebook designs. The pricing will also drive away most punters, as the 1TB drive costs $249 and the 750GB model will set you back $189.

You can expect the drives to show up in WD My Passport external drive series.
