Do you have you a question about the WD Blue (1TB) 3.5 Inch Internal SATA Mobile Hard Disk Drive?

Q: I am looking to replace the hard drive in an old Acer all-in-one PC with the intention of installing a distribution of Linux. Firstly, is this drive compatible with Linux and secondly is it pre formatted and ready to install Linux
Answer by Website User on 29th April 2019
Unfortunately, we do not support Linux so we cannot advise on compatibility. These also need formatting.

Q: will this hard drive work on my Gigabyte GAP45-UD3L version 1.1 ? Manual says it has a sata 3 ICH10 controller ?
Answer by Dan on 27th November 2014
Yes, this drive will work fine with that motherboard. While the board doesn't have SATA III ports this isn't an issue as a mechanical drive doesn't exceed the speed of SATA II anyway so it would be fine. -Danlevan

A lot quicker than I expected, write speed of over 20mb p/sec. Great service, price and delivery from CCL as per usual, one of my primary go to online shops. 1st class.

Works as should, average transfer speed for fresh out of the box was 30mb/s. Time will tell if this keeps up but I am expecting the normal WD reliability.

With a young son who has Fortnite saves hogging all the hard drive capacity, I thought that I should add another drive to the home pc. The Wd Blue 1Tb purchased from CCL gave me plenty of extra capacity for a keen price.

Good application as I wanted and as advertised. Time will tell on the warranty front but a promise to honour the 2 year warranty was good. Good communication from the company making the transaction easy

I haven't unpacked it yet, however I like Western Digital for their reliability over time. They are a well established make that offers good value for money.

Great value for money from a trusted brand.

tony allan

November 2018

order was received and found be faulty, my problem is you sent refund for the hdd and not the postage as well, when you should have replaced the hdd as your returns policy states, i am 8.99 missing of my money and no hard drive.


October 2018

Collected after ordering online, in and out in minutes. Easy to fit as a replacement drive, no problems since fitting.

Anthony Marshall

October 2018

Does the job admirably, using the drive to store Photos and CD's. I have found that some CD's that I have used to archive photos on are failing after ten years so I am concerned in how I can store photos and the like. I have found that Western Digital drives will last ten years in daily use but what if I put the drive in a safe for instance will the data last twenty years. I want to have photos that will be available to later generations.
