Product Features

Storage Capacity Up to 6 TB

Boost your PC storage with

WD Blue drives, the brand designed specifically for desktop and all-in-one PCs. The WD Blue family now delivers data storage capacities up to 6 TB.

Improve PC Performance

Pair a larger capacity drive with an SSD to give your desktop a

performance and storage boost. The SSD maximizes speed of data access, while the WD Blue drive stores up

to 6 TB of movies, games, files, applications and more.

Upgrade and Backup with Ease

WD hard drives come with free access to WD Acronis True Image. Backup and restore functions make it easy to save and retrieve your personal data without the need to reinstall the OS.

Trust in WD

Customers around the world know that WD’s reliability is legendary. Every WD Blue drive is designed, tested and built to last, and each ships with a 2-year limited warranty.

Future-Proof Your Storage

With better technology comes bigger storage needs. Cameras that record ultra-high definition video at 4K resolution at 30 frames per second require a ton of storage. Handling all that media is a snap with our 6 TB drive.

NoTouch Ramp Load Technology

Safely positions the recording head off the disk surface to protect your data.

IntelliSeek

Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.

Applications

WD Blue storage is tested and recommended for use in desktop and All-in-One PCs, notebooks, and external enclosures.

Desktop / Consumer RAID Environments - WD Blue PC Hard Drives are tested and recommended for use in consumer-type RAID applications (RAID 0 and RAID 1).*

*Business Critical RAID Environments – WD Blue PC Hard Drives are not recommended for and are not warranted for use in RAID environments utilizing Enterprise HBAs and/or expanders and in multi-bay chassis, as they are not designed for, nor tested in, these specific types of RAID applications. For all Business Critical RAID applications, please consider WD’s Enterprise Hard Drives that are specifically designed with RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER), are tested extensively in 24x7 RAID applications, and include features like enhanced RAFF technology and thermal extended burn-in testing.

2As used for storage capacity, one megabyte (MB) = one million bytes, one gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes, and one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. As used for buffer or cache, one megabyte (MB) = 1,048,576 bytes. As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second, and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second. Effective maximum SATA 3 Gb/s transfer rate calculated according to the Serial ATA specification published by the SATA-IO organization as of the date of this specification sheet. Visit www. sata-io.org for details.

3WD hard drive products manufactured and sold worldwide after June 8, 2011, meet or exceed Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance requirements as mandated by the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU.
