Recently, WD took the time to send us in their fastest 7200 RPM notebook drive and at 500GB for the largest capacity, I decided to take the opportunity to do a quick little A/B comparison in performance, over in the HotHardware Blog section. The new WD Scorpio Black 500GB 2.5-inch notebook hard drive weighs in at half the price ($76 at Amazon) of the Momentus XT, and as you'll see, does a fairly good job of hanging with it, from a performance standpoint as well.
I commented over on the blog too... it's worth taking a quick peak over there.
This is a pretty quick little drive! Might consider swapping one of these into my laptop or my ladies laptop...
