High capacity with increased reliability.
The WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD not only achieves higher capacities (up to 2 TB) than previous generations of WD Blue SSDs thanks to 3D NAND technology, but also ensures even higher reliability through less interference between the cells. The WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD offers improved durability and up to 25% lower active power consumption than previous generations of WD Blue SSDs. And with lower power consumption, you can work longer without recharging your notebook.
Excellent performance for high-end computing.
For computer applications like gaming, HD media playback or software for creative professionals, use WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs. Western Digital™ 3D NAND technology enables sequential reading speeds of up to 560 MB/s and sequential writing at up to 530 MB/s. This ensures fast system starts and application reactions as well as high data transfers.
SSDs have no moving parts. This protects you from data loss even in the event of an accidental impact or fall. With a Mean Time To Failure (MTTF) of 1.75 million hours, up to 500 TBW (written terabytes), and various troubleshooting technologies, WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs are suitable for long-term data storage. The WD Functional Integrity Testing Lab (F.I.T. Lab™) is certified for WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD compatibility with a wide range of PCs and notebooks. Every WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD is extensively tested for compatibility and reliability to meet WD's exacting standards.
