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

Q: Hi, I have a 10yr old desktop build from yourselves with an ASRock M3A770DE motherboard. I’m looking to add/replace the existing HDD as the current one is almost full. Would this be suitable and would I need to purchase any other hardware/cables. If so can you advise what I will require. Cheers Jamie

Q: Can I insert it inside my laptop? Or this only suits PC's
Post Answer
Q: This might be a dumb question but I haven't built a PC for a while. What connections does this hard drive have? The image is no use and the specs don't say. Do hard drives still come with a molex and a sata power socket or are they sata only now? Just wondering what cables I need.
Answer by Website User on 2nd June 2021
This purley uses SATA power and data. You'd use a SATA power connector from your power supply and a SATA data cable; if you have one from your motherboard box you can use that, otherwise you'd buy one separately as drives don't include them. - Kristian N

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: Apologies if this is a stupid question but is the drive open like this or is it enclosed? Are these photos just to show it has spindles?
Answer by Website User on 16th July 2018
The drives are enclosed/sealed - the images are indeed just to show the internals.

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

Q: Hi, I see that this is a 6GB/s SATA III drive - will it work OK on a 3GB/s SATA II board? I have an oldish MSI K9AGM3 motherboard. Regards.
Answer by Richard on 29th October 2013
This is backwards compatible with SATA II and I and will just run at the maximum speed the board can handle, e.g SATA II in this case. -* RH

Top quality , cant fault it , exactly as described


April 2022

Arrived ahead of schedule, well packaged and in expected condition. I had no issue with the installation and have had no problems with use of the product.


April 2022

Fantastic storage for the price, definitely the best Hard drive brand. On a tight budget this HDD is absolutely fantastic at delivering a ton of storage at a good speed too. To add this hard drive is significantly quieter than other ones I've used. Definitely recommend this product.

I didn't need an HDD with a large amount of space and this affordable 1TB WD Blue is still based on CMR technology (instead of the less reliable SMR).

Joseph Cork

March 2022

Brought for my games, runs and loads them without issues.

Wasn't looking to upgrade to a SSD, so this hard drive worked for me.

WD 1TB Hard Drive. Where possible I only buy these H/Drives because of the 7200RPM speed and you can control 1TB for documents and photos. When using a larger TB, you need more memory to find what you're looking for. Partition Drives C: 150GB and D: 870GB+ you loose a bit of space. C:150Gb for Operating system, win 7/10 whatever. IF C: Drive Crashes you can re-insall the operating system and All your documents and photos are Still on D:Drive. Can't tell you how many times i've reloaded windows 10 pro, keeps larking about, so ustable. Still using Windows 7 Pro, also Win XP, these Hard Drives load-up no problem, use them as Slave H/D back-ups.

Great price for a great product (I bought three). Fantastically well packaged and quick delivery.


February 2021

Have always been reliable - but I hope they expand the in-store counter rather than make it smaller - once the corona-virus situation eases. I like to speak with people - otherwise I might as well order from Amazon (which is a terrible company)


February 2021

Building a new pc and needed some hard drives to save photos videos documents and other important stuff for the bucket list and as I have had WD drives before and they have never let me down without some sort of warning at the price I couldn't resist so I bought 2 1TB and haven't looked back, plus you do get a few extras to download for free to monitor drives and help with backup of data ect.

January 2020

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.

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

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.
