Western Digital Scorpio Black 750 GB. It is not a normal Scorpio Black, in that it is a 5400RPM 2.5" drive, not the larger faster form it is usually in. The power draw is mitigated by using only two platters and the use Advanced Format Technology helps speed sequential reading. For random reads and writes however, Tech ARP’s testing showed the older 500GB model to be faster.
