Ready for your high performance computing needs, a WD Blue™ SATA SSD offers high capacity, enhanced reliability, and blazing speed.Ready for your high performance computing needs, a WD Blue™ SATA SSD offers high capacity, enhanced reliability, and blazing speed.
High capacity with enhanced reliability
A WD Blue SATA SSD uses 3D NAND technology not only for higher capacities (up to 4TB1) than the previous generation WD Blue SATA SSDs, but also to help reduce cell-to-cell interference for enhanced reliability.
Superior performance for high-end computing
For a variety of computing applications like gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, look to WD Blue SATA SSDs. Western Digital™ 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.2
An SSD is designed with no moving parts to help protect against data loss if it is accidentally bumped or dropped. And with 1.75M hours MTTF (mean time to failure),3 up to 600 TBW (terabytes written),4 and several error correction technologies, WD Blue SATA SSDs can help guard data for years to come.
With a certification from the WD Functional Integrity Testing Lab (F.I.T. Lab™), every WD Blue SATA SSD is verified for compatibility with a wide range of desktop and laptop computers. Every WD Blue SATA SSD goes through extensive compatibility and reliability testing to ensure it meets the high standards of the WD Brand.
Downloadable WD SSD Dashboard and Acronis software
Monitor your drive’s available capacity, operating temperatures, SMART attributes and more with the WD SSD Dashboard. Acronis® True Image™ WD Edition software, available as a free download, can clone drives and backup your operating system, applications, settings and all of your data.
5-year limited warranty
Every WD Blue SATA SSD comes with a 5-year limited warranty,5 so you can be confident of your storage when you upgrade or replace any of your drives.
1 As used for storage capacity, one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment.
2 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.
3 MTTF = Mean Time To Failure based on internal testing using Telcordia stress part testing.
4 TBW (terabytes written) values calculated using JEDEC client workload (JESD219) and vary by product capacity.
5 See support.westerndigital.com for regional specific warranty details.

What happens after I've placed an order?
Once you place an order with us you'll receive an email confirmation listing all your items ordered. You should keep this email for future reference as it also acts as your invoice. We then start to process your order; the order is transmitted to our paperless production facility, built, checked for quality, handed to our installation engineers who then proceed with setup of any software you've ordered, then run through our burn-in and stability tests, checked once more for quality and finally it's handed to our dispatch department who will pack the order and book it in for delivery. Depending on how busy we are this entire process takes around 3-5 working days.
What delivery options are available?
Standard weekday deliveries to UK mainland addresses are free of charge
FREE UK Delivery - UPS/DPD Tracked
The majority of orders are sent by DPD courier (www.dpd.co.uk) who provide a fully trackable service. For orders being sent to UK mainland addresses you'll also benefit from DPD's Predict service - assuming you provide us with a valid email address and mobile phone number you'll receive email and SMS notifications from DPD in the morning before delivery with a predicted one hour delivery slot. If this slot turns out to be inconvenient you can re-arrange the delivery for another day, just by replying to the email or text message.
