Massive engineering in an ultra-slim world.

WD has pioneered an entirely new way of engineering the hard drive. With the highest possible aerial density inside the thinnest space, the WD Blue ultra-slim hard drive is our most advanced form factor ever at just 5 mm thin. That's 35 percent thinner than most popular smartphones and 47 percent thinner than a standard mobile hard drive.
 
Feather weight in a heavy weight class.

The WD Blue ultra-slim hard drive is 36 percent lighter than standard mobile hard drives, weighing in at just 74 grams, (2.61 ounces). Our new intelligent micro PCBA also helps reduce drive mass for 47 percent less total volume without compromising mobility requirements, making WD Blue as light as a feather!
 
 
 
Best-in-class acoustics.

WD's exclusive noise reducing technologies make the WD Blue 5 mm ultra-slim hard drive whisper quiet. At merely 15 decibels while idle and 17 decibels during seek operations on average, this drive is over 10 percent quieter than the closest competitor drive in its class.
 
State of the art, from the start.

An ultra-slim design that does not compromise, WD Blue was designed with stronger aluminum materials and a harder Tied-Shaft motor which increases drive pinch strength as much as 30 percent. These advanced engineering improvements allow for a more rigid structure without degrading performance or increasing power consumption.
 
WD Blue ultra-slim has also revolutionized the mobile hard drive with influences of enterprise-grade craftsmanship, featuring a new superior grade, high performance Dual Stage Actuator. Our state-of-the-art technology helps to reduce vibrations and acoustics that are emitted from within your system, increasing drive reliability and adds value by helping protect your investment.
 
 
 
Sealed to perfection.
 
Achieving a 5 mm profile with 47 percent less volume required a wide range of innovations, from the thermosphere down to protons and electrons. We introduced new manufacturing techniques and pioneered capabilities only thought previously as unimaginable. Our engineers pushed into new boundaries and developed a drive so advanced, it's reflection is simply remarkable. This combination of unique challenges allowed WD to create a design so slim, so compact, that it is sealed to perfection.
 
 
More products. More options. More solutions. More you.
 
Your digital life is unique and you need a family of internal hard drives that are as individual as you are. WD offers more than a one-size-fits-all hard drive. WD offers you choice. And that’s a powerful thing.
