Western Digital (WD) deserves to be crowned as one of the manufacturers of hard disk with many innovations. This time, WD issued that claimed the thinnest hard disk in the world.
At the Computex 2013 held in Taiwan some time ago, WD expressed about the availability of WD Blue, a 2.5-inch hard drive that has a thickness of 7 mm.
WD Blue is available in a great selection of capacities, ranging from 320 GB to 1 TB. Despite their small dimensions of this product can be used on the 9.5 mm slot drive that normally exists in a standard notebook. This makes the WD Blue is very compatible with all brands of notebooks and netbooks.
“Users with a large portfolio of content no longer have to sacrifice capacity when buying Ultrabook or upgrade to a thin and light notebook,” said Matt Rutledge, vice president and general manager for WD client storage products
• Shock Tolerance: WD ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks.
• Keep Cold and Noiseless: WhisperDrive proprietary technology enables WD hard drive works without creating noise.
• StableTrac: locked motor shaft at both ends to compensate for the vibration caused by the system, it can also stabilize platters for accurate tracking during read and write operations for faster performance.
• Dual Stage Actuators: Utilized of enterprise-class drives, dual stage actuator using two actuators to improve the positional accuracy over the data track. Primary actuator provides coarse displacement using the electromagnetic actuator principles conventional. Secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to enhance the position of the head to a higher level of accuracy.
• Durability: SecurePark ™ WD puts the recording head above the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface thereby enhancing long-term durability due to use less, and non-operational vibration tolerance better.
• Compatibility: WD perform tests on hundreds of systems and a lot of platforms in the FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to convince the customer that drives will work in specific systems.
