Western Digital Hard Drive
From the manufacturer
Trust in WD
If you know WD, you know our reliability is legendary. Every WD Blue drive is designed, tested and built to last.
WD Blue - PC Hard Drives
Boost your PC storage with WD Blue drives, the brand designed just for desktop and all-in-one PCs. The WD Blue family delivers data storage capacities up to 6 TB.
- Perfect for storing photos, videos & other important files
- Upgrade your PC from entry level capacities of 1 TB to the best available scaling over 5 TB
Improve PC Performance
Pair a larger capacity drive with an SSD to give your desktop a performance and storage boost. The SSD maximises speed of data access, while the WD Blue drive stores up to 6 TB of movies, games, files, applications and more.
Plan for the Future
With better technology comes bigger storage needs. Cameras that record ultra-high de nition video at 4K resolution and 30 frames per second require a ton of storage. Handling all that media is a snap with our 6 TB drive.
Upgrade and Backup with Ease
WD hard drives come with free access to WD Acronis True Image. Our downloadable software quickly copies all your existing data to your new drive – without reinstaling your operating system. Backup and restore functions make it easy to save and retrieve your personal data.

The wake up times are very good when compared to a Caviar Green, so it's good for an everyday storage drive for say downloads etc as there's very little pause when waking after the drive been put to sleep to save power etc, say 1-2 seconds compared to say 6 with a Green. All in all, I definitely recommend this drive, especially for the price. Obviously the only thing that matches an SSD is an SSD but as far as transfer speeds go, I was getting around 120-130mb/sec sustained when moving large files across internal mechanical drives.
Now why only 3 stars? Well I went to register the drive and check the warranty. I'd had the drive about 2 days, ran the serial and it came back as having about 5 months remaining out of the 24 months you get with a new Blue drive! I queried this with Western Digital, they revealed what I already suspected... I had been sold a recertified drive. These are basically knackered drives that Western Digital then refurbish and put back out, usually for resellers to flog at a discounted rate. The fact they only give them 6 months warranty says allot. The fact that the seller puts them out as a new drive also says allot.
So the moral is, make sure when buying that your drive is DISPATCHED FROM AND SOLD BY AMAZON themselves and not a third party seller. Even if it's fulfilled by Amazon it can still be sold by a third party.
I returned the drive for a refund and purchased a new drive from Amazon themselves, this time with a full warranty. I have attached images showing the differences between the two drives. The most obvious being the difference in the stickers, the brand new drive has the Blue sticker, the recertified has a black sticker, but both have the same part number. There's also a shot of the faint 'Recertified' stamp that I missed when fitting (*face palm*) hopefully this review will help people avoid being fleeced by unscrupulous sellers charging the same for a refurbished unit with a dead warranty as a brand new unit with a 2 year warranty.
Western Digital Comment: Sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. As per your mail we understand that you are facing issue with registering "WD Blue" drive in your Western Digital portal account.
This is to inform you that the drive SN: WCC4M2DFLV49 is an O.E.M drive that was shipped to a computer manufacturer. As per Western Digital policies and procedures, we do not cover warranty for O.E.M drives. Hence we recommend that you contact the place of purchase for warranty services.
This particular one may also be good, but I'll never know - I'm returning it unused, because of poor packaging which doesn't adequately protect the item and so I'll not risk using it (because of the extreme likelihood of it being either doa/failing prematurely in consequence of 'being bounced around' during delivery).
Item was shipped in a box much larger than the unit, with the only padding being a single piece of padding-paper above the item... so perhaps the training manual reads: 'Select too-big box, place item on bottom, screw-up wrapping paper and place on top, seal.'
For a book, the packing would have been excessive. For a sensitive electronic item it's woefully inadequate.
And I strongly disagree with the info about 'frustration free packaging'... 'will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging'. Er, no. It won't protect. And then having to spend time sorting this is a pain-in-the-***, and not in any way frustration-free.
In fairness, having phoned to discuss this, the customer service is good... acknowledgment, apology, next-day replacement, collection of unit to be returned. I've requested that if it's as poorly packed then please don't bother sending. So I'm hoping for something which 'will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging'.
With common sense, none of this would have happened. But it did, which is a negative experience for all and something which could easily have been avoided.
DAY-LATER UPDATE: Replacement arrived by free next-day delivery... appropriately packed in protective inner carton (which is what I'd expected for the first item).
