WDBlue was developed to meet WD's highest standards of quality and reliability. WDBlue offers the entry-level features and capacities to meet your computing needs. WDBlue was designed by your trusted manufacturer. So you get the quality you expect from a tested, proven storage solution for your everyday computing needs.
The freedom of choice
WDBlue is available with a wide range of capacities, cachegrids, foundations and entry-level interfaces. So you can be sure that there is always a drive that fits your system perfectly. However, not all hard drives are the same. For your applications with higher requirements, WD gives you the freedom of choice.
A modern classic
WDBlue drives are designed and manufactured with the technology found in WD's original, award-winning desktop and mobile hard drives. WDBlue sets the standard for storage that is in daily use by consistently delivering improved performance over previous generations. At the same time, WD has been successfully delivering consistent quality and performance for more than six generations. The difference is that the colors never fade from generation to generation.
SATA or PATA: The choice is yours
While SATA has become the industry standard, WD continues to manufacture desktop drives with a PATA interface for special or older systems.
With Acronis TrueImage, available for download from the WD Support website, you can clone or copy all your data to a new drive. This eliminates the need to reinstall your operating system and applications to take advantage of a new drive.
