The WD WD2500LPVX Blue 250GB OEM Hard Drive delivers solid performance and reliability, while providing you with sufficient space to hold up to 250GB of photos, videos, and files. This drive is designed for use as a primary drive in notebooks and external enclosures.
Advanced engineering in an ultra-slim world
With high aerial density inside a thin space, the WD Blue ultra-slim hard drive has a form factor of 5mm thin.
Feather weight in a heavy weight class
The WD Blue ultra-slim hard drive weighs just 2.61 oz. The intelligent micro PCBA also helps reduce drive mass for 47 less total volume without compromising mobility requirements.
At merely 15dB while idle and 17dB during seek operations on average, this drive is whisper quiet.
The WD Blue is designed with strong aluminum materials and a hard Tied-Shaft motor, which increases drive pinch strength as much as 30 percent. These improvements allow for a more rigid structure without degrading performance or increasing power consumption.
The WD Blue ultra-slim features a high grade, high performance Dual Stage Actuator. The advanced technology helps to reduce vibrations and acoustics that are emitted from within your system, thereby increasing drive reliability.
Low power consumption
Advanced seeking algorithms and power management features ensure low power consumption and long battery life.
NoTouch Ramp Load technology
The recording head never touches the disk media, thereby ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
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 get all the benefits of a new drive.
The 7mm 2.5" mobile drive is designed for thin and light mobile applications, and is also compatible with most standard 9.5mm bays.
