WDLabs, a part of Western Digital (WD) Corporation has launched a new line of HDD called WD PiDrive offering storage solutions just for the Raspberry Pi. It comes in a slim form factor of 7 mm and is available in three versions offering different storage capacities. Based off of Western Digital’s Blue drives (as per Ars), they have been modified to draw all the power it needs straight from the bundled USB cable. Gone is the traditional SATA connector, and in its place, a USB interface has been implemented. WD insists it will allow for “sufficient performance to deliver maximum USB data transfer rates.”
