Note: These is a 5mm height WD 500GB 2.5" HDD. It is NOT a SATA III interface 2.5" hard drive, it will not fit regular laptop without conversation kit or cable. It comes with a SFF-8784 (SATA Express) interface, designed for UltraBook or Tablet (Microsoft Surface Tablet) with SFF-8784 interface. Please check your device's interface before purchase.
Western Digital Blue UltraSlim WD5000MPCK 500GB 5mm height 2.5" hard drive has a wealth of innovation placed into design to complement and go far beyond just meeting the initial parameter of featuring a 5mm profile. UltraSlim is 47% thinner than 9.5mm drives and 29% thinner than 7mm drives thanks to its new micro PCB.
The WD UltraSlim WD5000MPCK 500GB 2.5" Hard Drive also features a Dual Stage Actuator to reduce vibrations and acoustics from within systems. It produces merely 15 decibels in idle state and an average of 17 decibels in seek operations. WD has poured a lot of effort into design, and the payoff seems worthy of the effort.
The Western Digital WD5000MPCK Blue Ultra Slim delivers best-in-class performance with power requirements comparable to much slower drives. In addition, you'll get the smallest (height 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 WD5000MPCK Blue Ultra Slim has a standard 16 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 WD5000MPCK Blue Ultra Slim 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 500GB for mobile storage. Whether they are in an external drive or a notebook computer, WD Blue Ultra Slim drives continue 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 optimize 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 6 Gb/s SFF-8784 (SATA Express) interface speed yields performance fit for demanding mobile applications.
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.
