Superior Performance for High-End Computing

Solid Reliability

Leading-Edge Performance

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

High Capacity with Enhanced Reliability

Solid Reliability

Superior Reliability and Efficiency

A WD BLUE 3D NAND SATA SSD uses 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. 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.

BLUE SSD Features

Easy Upgrade

Leading-Edge Reliablility
