The WD Scorpio Blue PVT line of 2.5” HDDs are currently available in 7 different sizes ranging from 160GB to 1TB. If you're in the market for a quiet, energy efficient 2.5" HD that's affordable and performs well, this might just be it!
I've been watching your videos for a very long time now, all the way back from when you reviewed a Sound Blaster Live! card and testing it on some game (I think that was it). I just registered on your site now. Wanted to perhaps give you my feedback on your videos. They are excellent overall and have really helped me make decisions on hardware. Of course there are mistakes, but hey, what the hell, right?
Well, I have the 640GB version of this drive that I recently installed in my MacBook Pro. It was cheap and I was looking for a high capacity drive, so it really fit the bill for me. The 8MBs of cache and 5400RPM rotation speed give it pretty lackluster performance, but it's ultra-silent, ultra-cool and has nice capacity which was my main buying point.
Hey you fucking asshole.
I am hunting you down online.
Dont be surprised if I show up at your house...
You fuvking Doochebag canadian.
Make hatfull remarks against innocents?
Remember this Sh1tbag?
"Let's just nuke the entire area. We'll kill both Terrorists AND the Israelis. Two birds with one stone."
You better watch your back. You are all over online, and I will figure it out.

hello, what do you suggest i put into fantec usb 3.0 External Enclosure. this scorpio blue 750 or the new seagate momentus 7200.5 750gb? it will be only used in that enclosure mostly.
I Had two of the 500GB in my laptop, in RAID 0, and let me tell you they are fast. More than doubled the performance of my old 200GB 7,200RPM HDD. With the two it fortunately does not run any hotter than the single 7200 drive.
Now I have a spare 2.5" drive. Anyone have suggestions for a case, preferably with eSATA?
looks cool... although, rather wait for a Sata iii
nice video review, i've got the 500GB (not PVT) edition and it's silent, cool and fast!
i'm still waiting for the 500GB Black edition..:)
why did you change from HIS hd 5970 to 5870
Well, I'm still testing the HIS HD 5870 Eyefinity. I have an Eyefinity 3 LCD video on the way, so that's why I still have the HIS HD 5870 Eyefinity in the system.
Removed my sub now, dont like it that you have disabled the comments on your videos so we have to visit your site....
YouTube comments on all recent and future videos will be disabled. I suspect this will not be an issue for most people since YouTube channel comments is filled mostly with off-topic, harsh, and inappropriate comments. I don't see the point of having a tech channel that's supposed to help people, be filled with garbage.
Here, comments will be on-topic because we have more controls in place. And this is win-win situation for everyone. Being able to ask me a question directly should also help many people. Well, that's my hope anyway.
Remember, my main focus has been and always will be 3dGameMan.com, not YouTube.
hey, what happened to the video???
There was a minor text error (black HDD should have been blue HDD) at the end of the video review, so I had to pull it, fix and upload again.
I'm afraid, Video Reviews are not like written reviews where you can easily correct your mistakes :/
Oh, and thx for taking the time to register. It's so much nicer knowing who I'm replying to. All you need now is a profile picture ;)
Here it is Rodney :)
Actually i was struggling to find my profile page on the site, am i missing something?
Then i found out that i need to log out first, then log in again to be able to see and edit my account information.
Well as usual great review. I still can't get over the fact of how technology is progressing, just last year I bought a 750gb Maxtor external hard drive it's nearly 3 times the size of a standard internal 750gb hard drive such as the one specified in this review. Well keep up the good work this looks promising for when I decide to build my rig.
I love Western Digital!
Great review but there are some things you could make better from my point of view:
* 2:52 You wanto to show us the connections but you cover them up with text. Even many people know how the connections look like I think it makes the video easier to understand for non-PC-related people.
* 2:52 "Weight: .15 kg" I didn't see the dot immediately so I first though that this HDD has 15 kg. I would add a "0" so that it's easier to see ("Weight: 0.15 kg").
* 2:52 This is a 2.5' HDD with a standart height. I would point this out because not so long ago 750GB 2.5' HDD were only available with 11mm height which do not fit in some Notebooks.
Product: Looks like a nice 2.5 HDD but the average seek time is a little bit high but not that bad.
Bit off the topic: 3:07 HIS HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 o.O`? Why not the HD 5970?
8GB cache sounds a little excessive lol.
Rodney, did I hear "8 GB" around 1 minute and 27.875 seconds (trying to be exact)? It sounds like you said "gigabytes" instead of "megabytes."
Being human sux sometimes ;) Fixed.
If you see anything else please let me know.
I have the Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500 GB 2.5" HDD and installed it into a Transcend TS0GSJ25R-S 2.5" Red USB 2.0 External Enclosure. Best Geek Toy Ever!! The INEO I-NA201U-Plus Aluminum 2.5" Black USB 3.0 External Enclosure should work with this drive nicely.
nice HD.. and very interesting price.. waiting for the review! =)
Unboxing video will be posted shortly :)
Hey Rodney, i know this is of topic, but do you know any good games? I just bought myself a Msi 5850 twin frozrII, but i don't have any games to play on it.....
Thanks in advance (great reviews ;)
I already did :) But i made an account and i was redirected to the main page, and with a valid email i didn't have any in my inbox. But thanks for replying :p
