Low power consumption.
State-of-the-art seeking algorithms and advanced power management features ensure low power consumption and long battery life.

In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive noise reducing technologies yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.
SATA or PATA interface.
While SATA has become the industry standard interface, WD continues to manufacture mobile drives with a PATA interface for unique or legacy systems.
