The WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD utilizes 3D NAND technology for capacities up to 2TB with enhanced reliability. Featuring an active power draw up to 25% lower than previous generations of WD Blue SSDs, you’re able to work longer before recharging your laptop, while sequential read speeds up to 560MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 530MB/s give the speed you want for your most demanding computing applications. Combined with the free, downloadable WD SSD Dashboard software and a 3-year limited warranty, you can confidently upgrade your system to the WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD. As used for storage capacity, one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. Active power draws are up to 25% lower during sequential reads than previous generations of WD Blue SSD at the 500GB capacity point.
As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second. MTTF = Mean Time To Failure based on internal testing using Telcordia stress part testing. TBW (terabytes written) values calculated using JEDEC client workload (JESD219) and vary by product capacity.
Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My goal was to upgrade an original 256 GiB SSD in an Alienware 15 (R0 or R1, the one that does not accept NVMe SSDs) to the larger 500 GiB one. Between a few choices, what drove me to the WD Blue was a combination of good reviews, price, and the availability of the Acronis True Image cloning software.
Obviously there are many choices of cloning software, many of them free and efficient (looking at you, Easeus). I was gladly impressed with the Acronis True Image. I installed the SSD (now what is this about no SSD including the darn screw? A few cents, perhaps a dollar, to include a screw in an $130-plus product?) and loaded Acronis. At first, the new SSD would not be found: I had to make the SSD "online" through Windows' Computer Management interface. Acronis gives you a few choices of cloning: (1) an exact image, which will maintain all partition sizes and location as they were originally (thus you get no increase in size; you would have to do that later); (2) allow Acronis to increase the target partition size as it assumes best; or (3) manual definition of target partition location and sizes.
Option (2) would not work well for me. My original SSD had some 6 partitions (many of them recovery partitions that I do not know were really being utilized, but I will figure that out later), and Acronis would always pick the wrong one to allocate the extra space in the new SSD. Thus, I selected the manual cloning, which gives you an initial exact-image template, and then you can move the partitions and/or change their size in the target SSD. As such, I maintained the order of the partitions on the new SSD, and allocated all the extra space to the "system" partition.
The next issue is that I utilize Bitlocker in my drives. Acronis True Image will not clone Bitlocker-encrypted partitions, either online, or offline (booting from an Acronis boot disk or USB). I had to therefore disable Bitlocker and decrypt my drives prior to cloning, which took a considerable amount of time. Once done, Acronis could initiate the cloning process. I left the cloning operation running and occupied myself with other matters. I came back after a while (one hour, perhaps) to verify what next steps were necessary for Acronis to finish the cloning procedure. I expected to have to configure the new boot device as the new SSD in Windows, or through Acronis. What I found was the computer already rebooted, utilizing the new SSD as the new boot device, all partitions correctly configured as I designed, and the old SSD available and untouched (apart from not set as the boot device any longer).
Not bad. Not bad at all.
Now what is this about not including the darn screw? I will not cut stars because of this, but, come on. Between two competing SSDs, similar prices/performance, one includes the darn screw, which one do you thing consumers would buy?
Note none of this is the hard drive fault but I spent like 6 hours swapping hard drives and downloading drivers, trying hunting down all my drivers for my USB controller, Video card, Bluetooth/WiFi card, and like 3 hours of that was windows "updates"
after its all said and done PC boots in under 10 seconds, Lost all the HP/Win 7 home bloat ware, just a nice bare os, runs incredibly fast
tanks 7.9 on windows performance index
If you computer doesn't have a 2.5" bay you better buy the Inateck ST1002S 2"x2.5" SSD to 3.5" Internal Hard Disk Drive Mounting Kit Bracket or similar to go with this or you will not have a way to mount it or run power to it, also this drive DOES NOT come with screws, but western digital doesn't say it does so I won't gives them a 1 star review over something this minor
Hope this helps, If I have any problems Ill update this post, almost want to buy another pair and run raid 0 with them :)
