The WD Blue SSD delivers 1TB of storage capacity for storing your apps, multimedia content, and files. This internal SATA-based SSD is 7mm high and fits in an available 2.5" drive bay, making it well suited for compact systems such as notebooks, NUCs, and SFF desktops. For performance, it comes armed with Tiered Caching technology that utilizes SLC and TLC flash technologies to enable up to sequential 545 MB/s read and 525 MB/s write speeds. Aside from performance, WD includes free downloadable WD SSD Dashboard software, so you can monitor the health of this solid-state drive.

Performance for High-End Computing
For high-end computing applications such as gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, WD Blue solid-state drives have 545 MB/s read and 525 MB/s write speeds you need for the performance you want. Tiered caching technology utilizes SLC (single-level cell) and TLC (triple-level cell) flash technology to enable these impressive sequential read and write speeds, allowing for fast system boot up, quick application response, and rapid transfer of data.
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. With 1.75M hours of 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 SSDs are optimized for multitasking and can easily run several resource-heavy applications simultaneously. This feature lets you run a background virus scan, play a 4K video, and check an email message.
Compatibility
This WD Blue SSD features a 2.5" storage drive form factor and has a height of 7mm to make it compatible with compact notebooks, NUCs, and desktops.
Free WD SSD Dashboard
The downloadable WD SSD Dashboard software program provides a suite of tools so you're always able to check on the health of your solid-state drive. This free program 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.

    1TB Blue SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't work internally on a MacBookPro9,1 The WD Blue SSD has a great performance to price ratio however, it seems to have some firmware compatibilities with certain Mac EFI firmwares. This drive was ordered to be installed as a second drive in a MacBookPro 15 (mid 2012) but it seems to be incompatible with that Mac EFI firmware. When plugged into an external SATA/USB adapter it worked just fine. It also worked when installed internally on an old MacPro just not on the MacBookPro (The system refuses to erase/partition it throwing an error). I had a smaller Samsung SSD in that same slot which works just fine so, it is obvious that it is a strange incompatibility between the MacBookPro 9,1 EFI firmware only.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value in a 2.5 1TB SSD Available We have several classrooms for our Visual Communications students and purchased (1) of these WD 1TB Blue SSD drives about a month ago to upgrade an aging MacPro v4,1 (2009) teach station. This drive, coupled with a 32GB RAM upgrade (OWC 1066MHz UDIMM Kit) also purchased from B&H, has given new life to one of our older MacPro's. The performance boost has been excellent and so far the drive has been rock solid reliable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viagra for my old laptop I have a 4yr old 17 HP laptop. It got slow. For example, Photoshop CC 2017 would take over a minute to open up. Now it takes less than 10 seconds. I was told by a friend that it would speed up my laptop, but never expected this much. It is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, No Hassle Installation The drive was very easy to install and format. I am using it as a scratch drive for Adobe Premiere CC, and I love it. It is fast. I am already seeing performance gains in the editing process.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value SSD A lot of storage space for a good price! Plus it has data migration software included to get your old OS and programs transferred over quickly and efficiently!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance at a very good price The only negative comment I have is that it took a couple of tries to initialize the drive using the Western Digital Acronis True Image cloning software. Once I cloned the original hard disk, this SSD went to work immediately The boot speed was phenomenal and programs open flawlessly. Best 1TB SSD I have used. I hope it is as reliable as my old HDD drives that I have used in the past.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HUGE IMPROVEMENT Installed this SSD in my Dell Latitude e6530 laptop (circa 2011) running Windows 10, which immediately became a massively quick and responsive SUPER COMPUTER (on the cheap) !!!� Saved me a bunch of $$$ over buying a gaming laptop for QGIS GIS mapping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice SSD drive at a good price So far, so good. My first SSD so I really don't have anything to compare to, but it's much faster than my old disk drive. I did have some difficulty Cloning my old drive to this one, but ultimately got it figured out.
