Overview

Ready for your high performance computing needs, a WD Blue™ SATA SSD offers high capacity, enhanced reliability, and blazing speed.Ready for your high performance computing needs, a WD Blue™ SATA SSD offers high capacity, enhanced reliability, and blazing speed.

High capacity with enhanced reliability

A WD Blue SATA SSD uses 3D NAND technology not only for higher capacities (up to 4TB1) than the previous generation WD Blue SATA SSDs, but also to help reduce cell-to-cell interference for enhanced reliability. 

Superior performance for high-end computing

For a variety of computing applications like gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, look to WD Blue SATA SSDs. Western Digital™ 3D NAND technology helps enable sequential read speeds up to 560MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 530MB/s for fast system boot-ups, quick application responses, and rapid transfer speeds.2

Leading-edge reliability

An SSD is designed with no moving parts to help protect against data loss if it is accidentally bumped or dropped. And with 1.75M hours MTTF (mean time to failure),3 up to 600 TBW (terabytes written),4 and several error correction technologies, WD Blue 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 SATA SSD is verified for compatibility with a wide range of desktop and laptop computers. Every WD Blue SATA SSD goes through extensive compatibility and reliability testing to ensure it meets the high standards of the WD Brand.

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 backup your operating system, applications, settings and all of your data.

5-year limited warranty

Every WD Blue SATA SSD comes with a 5-year limited warranty,5 so you can be confident of your storage when you upgrade or replace any of your drives.

1 As used for storage capacity, one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment.
2 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.
3 MTTF = Mean Time To Failure based on internal testing using Telcordia stress part testing.
4 TBW (terabytes written) values calculated using JEDEC client workload (JESD219) and vary by product capacity.
5 See support.westerndigital.com for regional specific warranty details.

Q: Can I use this SSD to replace the one in my Mac book Air which is Mid 2012 model
Answer by Website User on 4th May 2020
No, your MacBook Air uses a propriety connector and this would not be compatible. -MR

I already have a Western Digital Blue 3D NAND M.2-2280 250GB in my computer and it has been running my operating system and programs faultlessly for the past two and a half years. It seems only reasonable to get another as a clone of the first... You just never know what disaster might befall computers these days. and it is a simple switch over job, to be up and running again. I know that there are now better faster and more up to date alternatives out there, but why spend more than necessary, when I know from experience that the WD Blue M2 does the job very well and reliably, and at a speed matching my needs exactly. It might now be considered a budget option But it is an option one can have confidence in.
