Superior performance for high-end computing
For high-end computing applications like gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, WD Blue solid state drives have the speed you need for the performance you want. Tiered caching technology utilizes SLC (single-level cell) and TLC (triple-level cell) flash technology to enable sequential read speeds of up to 545MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 525MB/s, allowing for fast system boot up, quick application response, and rapid transfer speeds.

Leading-edge reliability
With no moving parts, a solid state drive is designed to help protect against data loss if a drive is accidentally bumped or dropped. And with 1.75M hours MTTF (mean time to failure) and an endurance rating of up to 400 TBW (terabytes written), WD Blue SSDs can help guard data for years to come. WD Blue solid state drives also use several leading error-correction technologies to help prevent data loss and provide lasting reliability.

Maximized multitasking
WD Blue solid state drives are optimized for multitasking and can easily run several resource-heavy applications simultaneously. Run a background virus scan while watching a 4K video and checking your email.

The right form factor for your PC
WD Blue SSDs are available in either a 2.5"/7mm cased or an M.2 2280 model to evolve with smaller and thinner computers. With form factors to accommodate most laptops, desktop PCs, and small form PCs, a WD Blue SSD is ready for the job.

Broad compatibility
Every WD Blue SSD goes through extensive compatibility and reliability testing to ensure it meets the highest standards of the WD brand. With a certification from the WD Functional Integrity Testing Lab (FIT Lab™), every WD Blue SSD is verified for compatibility with a wide range of desktop and laptop computers.

Free WD SSD Dashboard
The downloadable WD SSD Dashboard provides a suite of tools so you're always able to check on the health of your solid state drive. Available for free, this Dashboard helps you track things such as disk model, firmware version, S.M.A.R.T. attributes, or simply monitor how much space you have left on your WD Blue SSD.

3-year limited warranty
Every WD Blue 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.

The WD reputation, for what it's worth. Usually good quality at reasonable prices.

Drive read errors in new drive only 1 week old

I bought this WD Blue SSD against the advice of a very learned computer expert, who recommended the Intel equivalent. Based on price, and largely based on the good reputation of, and personal experience with, WD Blue HDD. I have so far been disappointed. When it's working, it's amazing. I replaced the boot partition of my WD Black HDD with this one. It is crazy fast, and so quiet. Problem is this drive is exactly one week old today, and three times now I have gotten hard drive read errors when I boot. _ctrl__alt__del_, like it tells me to do, brings it up OK. Fine, but not really. There is a problem. It should not do this. I'm heading into the store today to see about getting a warranty replacement. I hope I get the great level of service I get when I am spending hundreds of dollars there.
