From the Manufacturer
WD Blue Mobile Hard Drives – Solid performance and reliability for everyday computing.
Massive Capacity in a Slim World
WD Blue 7mm slim drives have revolutionized the mobile hard drive by combining enterprise-grade craftsmanship with a massive 1 TB capacity, packed into a slim 7mm form factor.
Feather Weight in a Heavy Weight Class
The WD Blue Slim hard drive is 36 percent lighter than standard mobile hard drives, weighing in at just 74 grams, (2.61 ounces). Our new intelligent micro PCBA also helps reduce drive mass for 47 percent less total volume without compromising mobility requirements, making WD Blue as light as a feather!
State of the Art, from the Start
A Slim design that does not compromise, WD Blue was designed with stronger aluminum materials, a harder Tied-Shaft motor and a high performance Dual Stage Actuator.
Best-in-class acoustics - WD's exclusive noise reducing technologies make the WD Blue Slim hard drive whisper quiet. At merely 15 decibels while idle and 17 decibels during seek operations on average, this drive is over 10 percent quieter than the closest competitor drive in its class.
Sealed to perfection - Achieving a 7 mm profile with less volume required a wide range of innovations, from the thermosphere down to protons and electrons. We introduced new manufacturing techniques and pioneered capabilities only thought previously as unimaginable. Our engineers pushed into new boundaries and developed a drive so advanced, it's reflection is simply remarkable. This combination of unique challenges allowed WD to create a design so slim, so compact, that it is sealed to perfection.
Low power consumption - State-of-the-art seeking algorithms and advanced power management features ensure low power consumption and long battery life.
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.
Available SATA 6 Gb/s interface - SATA 6 Gb/s interface provides greater flexibility for use with the latest operating systems as well as backwards compatibility to legacy systems with SATA 3 Gb/s requirements.
Tested for compatibility - We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
The WD advantage - WD puts our products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. On average, each new product goes through 600,000 hours of testing. WD also has a detailed Knowledge Base with more than 1,000 helpful articles. You can also call toll-free support 7 days per week in the U.S. and Canada. See the WD Support site for full details.
Upgrading your drive is easy - WD Acronis TrueImage, available as a free download on the WD Support site, 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.
