Western Digital has announced that they will join Hitachi, Fujitsu and Samsung by releasing new 400 and 500GB 5,400rpm notebook hard drive which will be added to the Scorpio Blue product line.

While the new 500GB 5,400rpm Scorpio Blue model, which is also known as the WD5000BEVT, will retail for $219 USD, the 400GB WD4000BEVT will retail for $189 USD. Both drives will use the industry standard 9.5mm form factor and feature SATA connectivity.

The WD5000BEVT will use a two platter 250GB per platter design and both drives will feature WD’s standard WhisperDrive, ShockGuard, and IntelliSeek technologies that are standard on the Scorpio Blue product line.

While no specific details on estimated availability were released, the drives will begin shipping immediately and are expected to be available both in the channel and shortly at the local retail level. Both of the new drives will carry a three-year warranty.
