Upgrade or build a computer with the 500GB Blue SATA III M.2 Internal SSD from WD to provide your system with fast boot times and quick access to data. The WD Blue SSD delivers 500GB of storage capacity for storing your apps, multimedia content, and files. This internal SATA-based SSD sports an M.2 form factor, which resembles an oversized desktop memory module, and is compatible with ultrabooks and NUCs that have a 2280 M.2 slot. 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 M.2 SSD.

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 internal SATA-based SSD sports an M.2 form factor, and is compatible with ultrabooks, NUCs, and other systems that have a 2280 M.2 slot.
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.
