The Western Digital Scorpio Black 320GB (WD3200BJKT) is a 2.5” SATA-II hard-disc drive designed for portable digital devices, including notebook computers, external storage, and digital media players. It features a 7200rpm rotational speed and 16MB of cache; but it utilizes IntelliSeek and SecurePack technology to reduce power consumption to the level of a 5400rpm-equivalent HDD. Included also is ShockGuard technology for protecting the drive mechanics/platter-surfaces from shocks during shipping. Even more important is the WD3200BJKT’s free-fall sensor, which detects when the drive is falling and promptly parks the head to prevent damage and data loss.
