Unboxing the WD UltraSlim WD5000MPCK hard disk

If SSD is considered slim and compact, you are dead wrong. Western Digital has successfully made an ultra slim HDD at 5mm and weighs only 74 grams. Guess what, it even has a high capacity of 500GB.  A proprietary cable is provided to hook up power and SATA port.

Check out this video to see how slim the HDD as compared to a traditional SSD.
