WD PC Desktop overview

  • 1Description

The 1TB WD Caviar Blue 3.5" SATA Desktop OEM Internal Hard Drive from WD is built to meet high standards of quality and reliability. It features ample storage, quiet operation and low power consumption, ideal for your everyday computing needs. With a 1TB storage capacity, SATA interface and transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps, it is ideal for demanding desktop applications that require high performance. The Caviar Blue uses NoTouch Ramp Load technology, which prevents the recording heads from resting on the disk during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This results in a more reliable drive due to the limited head wear. The Caviar Blue has also been tested rigorously to ensure compatibility with most systems.

Cool Operation
The hard drive has been engineered for cool operation, this helps protect the drive and the data stored on it.
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
IntelliSeek Technology
The 3.5" internal hard drive features IntelliSeek technology which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
Upgrading Your Drive is Easy
WD Acronis True Image, available as a free download on the WD Support site, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to receive the benefits of a new drive.
Data Lifeguard
The drive features Data Lifeguard embedded error detection and repair features that automatically detect, isolate and repair problem areas which may develop due to extended use of the hard drive.
Tested for Compatibility
Rigorous tests are performed on systems and platforms to ensure that the drives are compatible with all systems.

    WD PC Desktop reviews

    1TB WD Caviar Blue 3.5" SATA Desktop OEM Internal Hard Drive is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 111.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Drive I am a long time buyer of Western Digital Blue drives. They run cooler than the Green drives, and are very reliable. I am still using WD Blue drives that are over 15 years old. An added benefit to buying a Western Digital drive is that you can get the Acronis TrueImage WD Edition backup software off Western Digital's website. The program also provides tools to configure 3TB, or larger, drives for your 64-bit computer. If you want a drive that does not overheat and runs like a Trane, buy the WD Blue hard drive. My experience with the Green versions are they overheat and fail, compared to WD Blue and Black versions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hard drive great price. By the description and the specifications it should be a very good hard drive. Easy setup for me I have a tool less installation setup in my PC so I just snapped it in the holder and plugged it in. Make sure you have or purchase a SATA data cable for this drive as it is a bare drive only. Easy setup in disk management to get the PC to recognize the drive and format it for operation it is working great but only have had it in for a short time. Very satisfied, works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought three of these Excellent hard drive. Very dependable. I recently upgraded my Mac Pro 2009 with this hard drive and no matter how many files I put on it I still have room more. The second one is for a computer hard drive upgrade for one of neighbors looking for more hard drive space. Can't beat the price. Noticeably quick boot up time. Great hard drive for general use or for file backups.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Reliable How I use WD Caviar Blue Internal Hard Drives: Five years ago, my boyfriend and I built my desktop computer from scratch, and he recommended installing two drives as my internal hard drives, an 80 GB WD Caviar Blue Internal Drive for my operating system and program files and a separate, 300 GB WD Caviar Blue Internal Drive for all my data files. I also bought three additional WD Caviar Blue Internal Hard Drives to use with a Thermaltake BlacX eSATA USB Docking Station as backup storage devices. I am a digital photographer, so it didn't take me long to realize that I had been a little too conservative about how much data storage I would require. Because I run Windows 7, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom in addition to Microsoft Office, I quickly used up the 80 GB on my system drive. Also, downloading huge .NEF and .CR2 photo files gobbled up the 300 GB on my data drive, so I needed to upgrade both drives. I purchased three 1 TB WD Caviar Blue Internal Drives. I installed two internally as an upgrade to both the original 300 GB and the 80 GB WD drives. I plan to use the other 1 TB WD Caviar Blue Internal Drive externally as a backup device using the BlacX docking station. The GOOD: All five of my original WD drives have worked perfectly for five years. They are fast, reliable, and quiet. Also, I love the fact that I can use the WD Caviar Blue Internal Drives with the BlacX USB docking station to create mirror images of all my system and data files without having to use multiple discs or Cloud storage. This has proven to be a simple, fast, and reliable backup plan. I have just begun to use the new 1 TB WD Caviar Blue Internal Drives, but I fully expect all three to be as fast and reliable as the original five drives. WD has definitely earned my trust. The BAD: Well, I've wracked my brains, and I can't think of a single negative thing to say about WD Caviar Blue Internal Drives. They have certainly not disappointed me, and I will continue to use them for the foreseeable future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good . . . Needed a 1 TB drive for a mirrored backup of my Mac Mini. I have had good luck with WD drives in the past, and the price was right, so I bought this and popped it in my 4 drive enclosure, and voula!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WD great drives! I used this to replace a drive in a 2009 MacPro. Formatted the drive, reinstalled from a time machine drive and all is well and back up and running!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good I replaced its twin, which had 28,000 hours of runtime, because the older drive had one pending relocation.� Mind you, the older drive had no functional problems, but the S.M.A.R.T. system was warning me - and 28,000 hours is a long time; it'd been in a system that runs more or less 24x7 for almost 4 years and never had a problem. This new drive has only been in there a week, and as I said in the title: So Far, So Good.� No problems, and I am expecting none.� I am rating it 4 stars because it's too soon to give it 5... its predecessor would get 5.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unit is exactly as Described Bought this drive to use as my record-to drive for multi-track audio out of Studio One 2 Pro. It's fast speed, size, and quiet operation are exactly what I was looking for. Setup in Win7 64-bit Pro was a breeze although not as simple as it once was in previous Operating Systems where the drive was installed automatically. After a quick net search, I assigned a drive letter and was ready to go.
