No compromises :
High performance, high capacity, high reliability, and cutting-edge technology make up WD Black, the ideal drive for those who demand only the best.
Performance just got thinner:
Built on a solid, proven platform and designed for thin and light mobile applications, our latest generation of 7 mm 2.5-inch drives come with a SATA 6 Gb/s interface, feature impressive shock tolerance and are compatible with most standard 9.5 mm drive bays.
WD Black carries the highest available warranty protection on the market, a 5-year limited warranty.
WD’s dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there’s an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.
Efficient dual processing:
When it comes to processing power, more is always better. WD Black features a dual-core processor that offers twice the processing capability as a single-core processor to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.
WD Black hard drives combine a high performance 7200 RPM spin speed, 16 MB cache and SATA 6 Gb/s interface for the ultimate in power computing for notebooks.
High performance electronics:
WD Black drives feature a dual processor and bigger, faster dynamic cache for maximum read and write speeds.
Rock-solid Mechanical Architecture:
Enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it.
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.
Acronis True Image, available as a download on the WD Support website, 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.
