"This is nice and quiet and also does not heat up as much as the 3.5" version. It would be better if it came in proper packaging such as a cardboard box."

"Not much to say, really. The drive does what all good drives do and is still doing it well. Thanks PB Tech."

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!

This is nice and quiet and also does not heat up as much as the 3.5" version. It would be better if it came in proper packaging such as a cardboard box.
