Features

For those seeking optimal performance and reliability, the WD Blacks come with 5 years of

The WD Black 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 Blacks are designed for performance, built with only speed in mind. It features a 5 year warranty, giving you peace of mind for all your storage. If you are after the fastest mechanical hard drive which is also reliable, the WD Blacks would be the perfect choice.

Maximum performance

Sophisticated performance enhancing features deliver the speed you need for demanding applications like photo and video editing and Internet gaming.

No compromises

High performance, high capacity, high reliability, and cutting-edge technology make up WD Black, the ideal drive for those who demand only the best.

Feature rich

WD Black hard drives combine a high performance 7200 RPM spin speed, 16 MB cache and SATA 6 Gb/s interface for the ultimate in power computing for notebooks.

High performance electronics

WD Black drives feature a dual processor and bigger, faster dynamic cache for maximum read and write speeds.

Dual processor

Twice the processing power to maximize performance.

Rock-solid Mechanical Architecture

Enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it.

NoTouch Ramp Load technology

The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

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.

Dynamic Cache

WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there's an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.

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.
