Product Description:

Western Digital Black 2.5 inch 500GB SATA 7200RPM 16MB Cache Hard Drive


WD Black hard drives are designed for enthusiasts and creative professionals looking for leading-edge performance. These 2.5-inch mobile drives are perfect for high-performance applications like photo and video editing, gaming and power PCs.


Maximum performance
Sophisticated performance enhancing features deliver the speed you need for demanding applications like photo and video editing and Internet gaming.

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.

Industry-leading warranty
WD Black carries the highest available warranty protection on the market, a 5-year limited warranty.

Dual processor
Twice the processing power to maximize performance.

Dynamic cache
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.

Available SATA 6 Gb/s interface
The SATA 6 Gb/s interface provides greater flexibility for use with the latest chipsets as well as backwards compatibility to legacy systems with SATA 3 Gb/s requirements. (BPKX and BEKX models only).

Rock-solid mechanical architecture
Twice the processing power to maximize performance.

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.

Tested for compatibility
We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
