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.
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.
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), up to 500 TBW (terabytes written), and several error correction technologies, WD BLUE 3D NAND SATA SSDs can help guard data for years to come.
3-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
Every WD BLUE 3D NAND SATA SSD comes with a 3-year limited warranty, so you can be confident of your storage when you upgrade or replace any of your drives.
With a certification from the WD Functional Integrity Testing Lab (F.I.T. Lab™), every WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD is verified for compatibility with a wide range of desktop and laptop computers. Every WD BLUE 3D NAND SATA SSD goes through extensive compatibility and reliability testing to ensure it meets the high standards of the WD brand.
