Description

Note: this 2.5-inch SSD has a SATA interface and only works if your system supports SATA. Check this in the manual of your laptop or motherboard.

The WD Blue 3D NAND 2.5-inch 500GB is an internal SSD suitable for gamers and creative professionals. Its common 2.5-inch size makes it easy to give your PC or laptop with a 2.5-inch slot a speed boost. The SATA connection ensures fast transfer, allowing you to transfer photo libraries, video collections, and game files at 525MB/s. For example, a 5GB full movie transfers to the SSD in about 10 seconds. Thanks to the 3D NAND memory, the SSD is 50% more energy-efficient than SSDs with regular flash memory. This makes your laptop last even longer on 1 battery charge. Before installation, transfer a full backup of your old drive with the free WD cloning software. The software also allows you to monitor the condition of your WD Blue, so you can be sure that the SSD will last a long time.
