WD Blue Mobile Hard Drives

WD Blue hard drives deliver solid performance and reliability while providing you with all the space you need to hold an enormous amount of photos, videos and files. These drives are designed for use as primary drives in notebooks and external enclosures.

Low power consumption: State-of-the-art seeking algorithms and advanced power management features ensure low power consumption and long battery life.

Quiet: In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD’s exclusive noise reducing technologies yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.

The original: WD Blue drives are designed and manufactured with the proven technology found in WD’s original award-winning hard drives.

WD quality: Built to the highest standards of quality and reliability, these drives offer the features and capacity ideal for your everyday computing needs.

Available SATA 6 Gb/s interface: The SATA 6 Gb/s interface provides greater flexibility for use with the latest chipsets as well as backwards compatibility to legacy systems with SATA 3 Gb/s requirements. (xPVX, xPCX, and MPCK models only).

Upgrading your drive is easy: Acronis True Image WD Edition Software, 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.

Compatible: Our latest generation of 7 mm 2.5-inch mobile drives is designed for thin and light mobile applications, and is also compatible with most standard 9.5 mm bays. (xPCX, LPVT, and LPVX models only).

StableTrac: Motor shaft affixed to the baseplate and top cover stabilizes platters for accurate tracking during read and write operations, yielding higher drive data throughput in harsh shock and vibration environments.

NoTouch ramp load technology: The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Enhanced Availability (EA)—for 24x7 Access to Data: Western Digital provides enhanced availability models of WD Blue 2.5-inch PC Hard Drives (WD5000LQVX) that deliver 24x7 access to information for data-intensive applications requiring round-the-clock operation. The new thinner profile allows for additional cooling, especially important in dense blade server designs. The WD Blue 2.5- inch PC Hard Drives provide high capacity, durability, and quiet acoustics on a proven platform for quality and reliability. EA models support the stringent demands of “always- on” applications in lower-transaction environments.
