The Western Digital Advantage
Western Digital puts our products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. This testing ensures our products consistently meet the highest quality and reliability standards of the Western Digital brand.

WD Quality
Built to the high standards of quality and reliability of the WD brand, these drives offer the features and capacity ideal for everyday computing needs.

The Original
WD Blue 2.5-inch PC Hard Drives are designed and manufactured with the proven technology found in WD’s original award-winning hard drives.

The latest generation of 7 mm 2.5-inch mobile drives is designed for thin and light mobile applications, and is also compatible with most standard 9.5 mm bays.

SATA 6 Gb/s Interface
The SATA 6 Gb/s interface provides greater flexibility for use with the latest chipsets as well as backwards compatibility to legacy systems with SATA 3 Gb/s requirements. 

Low Power Consumption
State-of-the-art seeking algorithms and advanced power management features help ensure low power consumption.

In a notebook, silence is golden. WD’s exclusive noise reducing technologies yield some of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.

Upgrading Your Drive is Easy
Acronis True Image WD Edition cloning software is available as a free download on the WD Support site enabling you to copy all your data to a new drive. You don’t have to reinstall your operating system to get all the benefits of a new drive.
