WD Blue M.2 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for a variety of computing applications like gaming, HD media playback, creative software, and more, the 500GB Blue 3D NAND SATA III M.2 2280 Internal SSD from WD is verified for use with a wide range of desktop and laptop computers with M.2 2280 slots for faster system boots, application responses, and transfer speeds. This SSD operates with a lower average active power draw of 52mW and features a storage capacity of up to 500GB, a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, sequential write speeds of up to 530 MB/s, sequential read speeds of up to 560 MB/s, random writes of up to 84,000 IOPS, and random reads of up to 95,000 IOPS. Also employed is 1.75 million hours MTTF (mean time to failure) and an endurance rating (lifetime writes) of 200 TBW (terabytes written).

With solid-state drive technology, you benefit from load and access times for your files and programs that are faster than a conventional 7200 rpm hard drive. As SSDs have no moving parts, they are also more durable than traditional hard drives and are better protected against damage from drops and bumps. Having no moving parts also means that SSDs receive less wear and tear, as there are no read or write heads for the drive media to come into contact with. SSDs also help to deliver improved battery life and cooler operating temperatures. Protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

General Features

High Capacity with Enhanced Reliability
A WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD uses Western Digital 3D NAND technology to achieve higher capacities than previous generation WD Blue SSDs and help reduce cell-to-cell interference for enhanced reliability.
Enhanced Power Efficiency
Offering improved endurance, a WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD features an active power draw up to 25% lower than previous generation WD Blue SSDs. With less power used, you've able to work longer before recharging your laptop.
Performance for High-End Computing
For a variety of computing applications like gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, look to WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs. Western Digital 3D NAND technology helps enable sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 530 MB/s for faster system boots, application responses, and transfer speeds.
Reliability
An SSD is designed with no moving parts to help protect against data loss if it is accidentally bumped or dropped. And with 1.75 million hours MTTF (mean time to failure), up to 200 TBW (terabytes written), and several error correction technologies, WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs can help guard data for years to come.
Broad Compatibility
With a certification from the WD Functional Integrity Testing Lab (F.I.T. Lab), every WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD is verified for use with a wide range of desktop and laptop computers. Every WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD goes through extensive compatibility and reliability testing to help ensure it meets high standards.
Downloadable WD SSD Dashboard and Acronis Software
Monitor your drive's available capacity, operating temperatures, SMART attributes, and more with the WD SSD Dashboard. Acronis True Image WD Edition software, available as a free download, can clone drives and back up your operating system, applications, settings, and all of your data.
Limited 5-Year Warranty
Every WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD comes with a limited 5-year warranty, so you can be confident of your storage when you upgrade or replace any of your drives.
