The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

1TB WD Blue 3D, 2.5" SSD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, 3D NAND, Read 560MB/s, Write 530MB/s, 95k/84k IOPS, Retail is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid State memory does what it says Over the years I've had no issue with Western Digital drives so bought 2 of these 1TB drives for archive storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WD Quality with Sams*** Performance! I bought one of these to upgrade a laptop from a mechanical hd for a friend, doing a clean install of Windows 10 at the same time, rather than migrating a chaotic old O/S installation. I was a little concerned about recognition and initialisation, but it turned out that my fears were completely groundless. Installation went like a dream booting from the DVD drive: the WD SSD was recognised, initialised, partitioned and formatted, all without any problems at all and incredibly quickly. I have used Samsung OVO and QVO SSD's previously but this was the first WD SSD. It will not be the last. Performance is exceptional and the price excellent. The owner of the laptop was so impressed, I got a rather large bonus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A reasonable SSD for the price It isn't outstanding, it isn't particularly cheap, but it isn't as expensive as the top tier Sata SSDs, and whilst it isn't as fast either, it's still a fabulous upgrade from a mechanical hd. At the moment Sata SSD prices have remained high for way past their value period. They're 2-4x as expensive as mechanical HDDs, but they're much slower than PCIe NVMe M2 cards, which aren't that much more expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very fast and reliable product I purchased this SSD to speed up my PS Pro, and I am very happy with the speed increase that I have gained from installing this SSD, game's load much faster and The playstation OS is a lot smoother too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and speedy. Breathed new life into my laptop. I have high hopes for this SSD. The original WD hard drive in my 2011 Dell Inspiron laptop was starting to show its age - after 7 years of daily use it was begining to slow down. Windows would take minutes to boot and do anything. Fitted the new WD SSD and pow!!!, the laptop now boots up in about 15-20 seconds. So much faster to use Windows now the drive is running quickly! The laptop now has a new lease of life. Well recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's designed to do. Used to replace a standard SATA hard drive in a HP laptop as all the Windows 10 updates and other updates were slowing it down. The laptop now works smoothly so it's worth the purchase. Only gripe is that the software that manages the SSD drive could have been designed better. It looks thrown together, but it's functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good SSD for a good price does a good job at being an SSD. just as good in the real world as my Samsung PRO's

Will this fit into a PC or is it Laptop only?

Will this fit into a PC or is it Laptop only? My current drive is a 3.5" in my PC will this fit? Current drive is a 1TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s HDD 7200RPM 32MB CACHE Thanks
Asked by: Beerwalla
You'll need a converter 'frame' from 3.5" down to 2.5", other than that it should be fine. If you're not using it as the 'C' drive, then consider putting it in a USB3 Caddy instead of mounting it inside the PC case.

The WD websites states 5 year warranties on this drive, however it is only listed as 3 on Scan. Is this an error?

Asked by: LiamH
The warranty has been updated by the manufacturer to 5 years. The site will be updated shortly to reflect this. Thank you.
