WD Blue drives are designed and manufactured with the proven technology found in WD's original award-winning desktop and mobile hard drives.

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.
SATA or PATA interface.
While SATA has become the industry standard interface, WD continues to manufacture desktop drives with a PATA interface for unique or legacy systems.
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.
