Features

For affordable storage with great performance, the WD blue is great for general use

The WD Blues are part of the WD hard drive family which consists of five different colours: blue, green, purple, red and black. They all have different purposes and while they are all quite similar, they are all fine tuned to perform a particular task or be fit for a certain type of application. The WD blues are designed home use, they are affordable and provide reliable performance for all your storage. There is a lot of flexibility with these drives, they come in both 2.5" and 3.5" form factors and also 5400 or 7200 rpm giving you a choice in which you prefer. the 5400 rpm drives will be a bit more quiet but won't perform as well while the 7200 rpm ones are suited for performance driven consumers. If you are after an affordable drive for all your storage needs, the WD blue is the perfect choice!

 

Trusted engineering

Built to WD's highest standards of quality and reliability, WD Blue offers the features and entry-level capacities that are ideal for your computing needs. WD Blue is designed by the brand that you trust with the quality you would expect for a tested, proven, everyday storage solution.

 

A modern classic

WD Blue storage is designed and manufactured with technology found in WD's original award-winning desktop and mobile hard drives. WD Blue sets the baseline for everyday storage by consistently delivering improved performance over previous generations while successfully maintaining WD's quality and reliability for over six generations. The difference is that our colors never fade, generation after generation.

 

Your power of choice

WD Blue is available in a broad range of entry-level capacities, cache sizes, form factors and interfaces so you can be sure there's a drive that's the perfect fit for your system. However, not all hard drives are created equally and for your applications that demand more, WD gives you the power of choice.

 

Drive with confidence

We perform tests on hundreds of systems, configurations, and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab™ to give our customers the confidence that our drives will work in their systems for the ultimate compatibility. WD Blue allows you to use our drive with confidence, knowing that our storage advancements such as NoTouch Ramp Load technology are proven and reliable everyday solutions.

The WD advantage

WD puts our products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. This testing ensures our products consistently meet the highest quality and reliability standards of the WD brand. WD also has a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 helpful articles as well as helpful software and utilities. Our customer support lines have longer operational hours to ensure you get the help you need when you need it. Our toll-free customer support lines are here to help or you can access our WD Support site for additional details.

Easy upgrade

Acronis True Image, available as a download on the WD Support website, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to get all the benefits of a new drive.

Recommended use

WD Blue storage is tested and recommended for use in desktop and All-in-One PCs, industrial applications, notebooks, and external enclosures where capacity is not needed. For additional capacity, look at WD Green capacity storage drives.

WD 1TB Blue Edition 3.5" SATA3 Internal HDD 7200RPM 64M

This unit is also for a afore-mentioned Upgrade. It will be a 'Storage Drive' while a 120GB SSD drive will be the main HDD. I trust Western Digital Hardware as they seem to be more reliable, and have better Warranty policies. Plus I know where to find the extra WD software online.

WD 1TB Blue 7200rpm

Affordable solution to storage problems. It is reliable and is fast too. Doesn't come with a manual (not that they usually do) so if you are new to this you will likely need to search up how to set up a hard drive.

Does what it needs to do.

This 1tb drive is a simple SATA solution: easy to install, easy to setup, and obviously has tons of space. Bit of a no-brainer really.

Pretty standard hdd

Just a very basic product, does what it says on the box. Time will tell if it lasts, but at least there's a two year warranty if it doesn't.
