Features
High capacity with enhanced reliability
A WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD uses Western Digital 3D NAND technology not only for higher capacities (up to 2TB) than the previous generation WD Blue SSDs, but also to help reduce cell-to-cell interference for enhanced reliability.

Enhanced power efficiency
Offering improved endurance, a WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD features an active power draw up to 25% lower than previous generations of WD Blue SSDs. And with less power used, you're able to work longer before recharging your laptop.

Superior performance for high-end computing
For a variety of computing applications like gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, look to WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs. Western Digital 3D NAND technology helps enable sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 530 MB/s for fast system boot-ups, quick application responses, and rapid transfer speeds.

Leading-edge reliability
An SSD is designed with no moving parts to help protect against data loss if it is accidentally bumped or dropped. And with 1.75M hours MTTF (mean time to failure), up to 500 TBW (terabytes written), and several error correction technologies, WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs can help guard data for years to come.

Broad compatibility
With a certification from the WD Functional Integrity Testing Lab (F.I.T. Lab), every WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD is verified for compatibility with a wide range of desktop and laptop computers. Every WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD goes through extensive compatibility and reliability testing to ensure it meets the high standards of the WD brand.

Downloadable WD SSD Dashboard and Acronis software
Monitor your drive's available capacity, operating temperatures, SMART attributes and more with the WD SSD Dashboard. Acronis True Image WD Edition software, available as a free download, can clone drives and backup your operating system, applications, settings and all of your data.

Runs like a maserati on race day.
Fast delivery. Installed easily and cloned right using minitool partition wizard (not included)
By Bob Daniels
My drive was a sub-par reader!
After running a couple of read/write tests on this ssd, i returned it due to a sub-par sequential write speed of 300mb/s. Read results were over 400mb/s. Good read results for my personally built gaming pc, but not acceptable comparing to three samsung 850 evo/s i have owned for five years.

Best computer upgrade
It made my old gaming rig run like lightning!
