Features
Storage Capacity Up to 6TB
Boost your PC storage with WD Blue drives, the brand designed specifically for desktop and all-inone PCs. The WD Blue family now delivers data storage capacities up to 6TB.

Improve PC Performance
Pair a larger capacity drive with an SSD to give your desktop a performance and storage boost. The SSD maximizes speed of data access, while the WD Blue drive stores up to 6TB of movies, games, files, applications and more.

Upgrade and Backup with Ease
WD hard drives come with free access to WD Acronis True Image. Backup and restore functions make it easy to save and retrieve your personal data without the need to reinstall the OS.

With better technology comes bigger storage needs. Cameras that record ultra-high definition video at 4K resolution at 30 frames per second require a ton of storage. Handling all that media is a snap with our 6TB drive, capable of storing up to 281.25 hours of 4K video.

Gold Standard for Commercial Print Severs
Reliable. We use these as replacement HDD's for print servers, spin 24/7 for years at a time. We've found this to be the most reliable replacement available, better than all other brands. The size is just right for this application.

Best there is....
Make a note to yourself......"Self......always use Western Digital hard drives....they are the best there is..."
By John in Rural Indiana
The WD Blue SATA drives trump the Blacks and Reds let alone the Greens and Yellows.
These mid-range WD Blues have given me the best service overall even compared to the so-call Enterprise Blacks. Looked once at the "high-end" WD Reds...IMO, the Reds have nothing on the Blues. NOTE: Even though OutletPC is based in Calif., they make it seem as they're only one state away with their fast processing and shipping...all at very fair S&H pricing!

Caviar! You bet!
I use and recommend WDC hard drives all the time! Western Digital is a fantastic company to work with in case you have a problem with your HD in the future too. Excellent!
