WD Blue Mobile 2.5-inch Hard Drives
WD Blue hard drives deliver solid performance and reliability while providing you with all the space you need to hold an enormous amount of photos, videos and files. These drives are designed for use as primary drives in notebooks and external enclosures.
New ultra-slim design.
Accomplishing unprecedented feats in engineering at only 5 mm thin, these drives enable a world of possibilities and applications. (MPCK models)
WD Blue drives are designed and manufactured with the proven technology found in WD’s original award-winning desktop and mobile hard drives.
Built to the highest standards of quality and reliability, these drives offer the features and capacity ideal for your everyday computing needs.
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.
In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive noise reducing technologies yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.
Available SATA 6 Gb/s interface.
The 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. (xPVX models only).
Upgrading your drive is easy.
WD Acronis True Image, 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.
Our latest generation of 7 mm 2.5-inch mobile drives is designed for thin and light mobile applications, and is also compatible with most standard 9.5 mm bays. (LPVX models).
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.
Massive engineering in an ultra-slim world.
WD has pioneered an entirely new way of engineering the hard drive. With the highest possible aerial density inside the thinnest space, the WD Blue ultra-slim hard drive is our most advanced form factor ever at just 5 mm thin. That's 35 percent thinner than most popular smartphones and 47 percent thinner than a standard mobile hard drive.
Feather weight in a heavy weight class.
The WD Blue ultra-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!
WD's exclusive noise reducing technologies make the WD Blue 5 mm ultra-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.
State of the art, from the start.
An ultra-slim design that does not compromise, WD Blue was designed with stronger aluminum materials and a harder Tied-Shaft motor which increases drive pinch strength as much as 30 percent. These advanced engineering improvements allow for a more rigid structure without degrading performance or increasing power consumption.
WD Blue ultra-slim has also revolutionized the mobile hard drive with influences of enterprise-grade craftsmanship, featuring a new superior grade, high performance Dual Stage Actuator. Our state-of-the-art technology helps to reduce vibrations and acoustics that are emitted from within your system, increasing drive reliability and adds value by helping protect your investment.
Sealed to perfection.
Achieving a 5 mm profile with 47 percent 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.
As used for storage capacity, one megabyte (MB) = one million bytes, one gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes, and one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. As used for buffer or cache, one megabyte (MB) = 1,048,576 bytes. As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second, megabit per second (Mb/s) = one million bits per second, and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second.
