Manufactured to the highest standards in terms of quality and reliability of WD, WD Blue offers basic services and capabilities ideal for your computing needs. WD Blue is designed by the brand you trust with the quality you would expect from a proven storage solution for everyday use.
A modern classic
WD Blue disks are designed and manufactured with the technology of the award-winning WD hard drives for desktops and laptops. WD Blue lays the foundation for daily storage by uniformly providing improved performance compared to previous generations and knowing how to maintain the quality and reliability of WD, demonstrated over more than six generations. The difference is that our colors never disappear, generation after generation.
The power to choose
WD Blue is available in a wide range of basic level capabilities, cache sizes, formats and connections so you have the disk that best fits your system. However, not all hard drives are the same and for applications that demand more, WD gives you the power to choose.
We have performed tests on hundreds of systems, configurations and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab, in order to provide our clients with the security that our disks will work on their systems. WD Blue allows you to use our disk with confidence, knowing that our storage advances, such as NoTouch Ramp Loading Technology, are proven and reliable solutions for everyday use.
Acronis True Image, available as a download on the WD Support website, allows you to copy all the data to a new disk so that it is not necessary to reinstall the operating system to have all the advantages of a new disk.
WD submits all products to complete Functional Integrity Tests (FIT) before launch. These tests ensure that our products meet the highest standards of quality and reliability of the WD brand. WD also has a detailed knowledge base with more than 1,000 useful articles, as well as software and helpful utilities. Our customer service phone lines have ample schedule to ensure you get assistance when you need it. You can call our toll-free customer service phone for help or visit the WD Support website for more information.
WD Blue hard drives are tested and recommended for use in laptops, netbooks and certain industrial applications.
Maximum engineering in an ultra-thin world.
WD has created a new way to design hard drives. With the highest density in the smallest possible space, the ultra-thin WD Blue hard drive is our most advanced design in just 5 mm thick. It is 35% thinner than most smartphones and 47% thinner than a standard portable hard drive.
Lightweight and large in capacity.
The ultra-thin WD Blue hard drive is 36% lighter than standard portable hard drives and weighs just 74 grams. Our new smart micro PCBA helps reduce disk mass by 47% without compromising requirements for portability, which makes the WD Blue disk a disk as light as a pen.
The best acoustics in its class.
WD's exclusive noise reduction technologies make the ultra-thin 5mm WD Blue hard drive a very quiet hard drive. With an average of just 15 decibels at rest and 17 decibels in operation, this disk is more than 10% quieter than other similar hard drives from other vendors.
Advanced technology from the beginning.
The ultra-thin design of the WD Blue does not need to be waived, it uses solid aluminum materials and a motor firmly attached to the shaft that increases the resistance of the disk by up to 30%. These engineering improvements allow a more rigid structure without affecting performance or increasing energy consumption.
The ultra-thin WD Blue disk has also revolutionized portable hard drives by incorporating enterprise-level features such as a high-quality, high-performance dual actuator. Our advanced technology helps reduce vibrations and acoustics originated inside the system, which increases the reliability of the disc and adds value by helping to protect your investment.
Achieving a disk with a profile of 5 mm and 47% less volume required a variety of innovations, from reducing the thermosphere to altering protons and electrons. We incorporated new manufacturing techniques and capabilities that until recently seemed impossible. Our engineers forced the limits and developed a disc so advanced that its very existence is incredible in itself. This select combination of challenges allowed WD to create such a fine and compact design that borders on perfection.
