Capacity:500GB The WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD utilizes 3D NAND technology for
capacities up to 2TB with enhanced reliability. Featuring an active power draw
up to 25% lower than previous generations of WD Blue SSDs, you’re able to work
longer before recharging your laptop, while sequential read speeds up to
560MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 530MB/s give the speed you want for
your most demanding computing applications. Combined with the free,
downloadable WD SSD Dashboard software and a 5-year limited warranty, you can
confidently upgrade your system to the WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD. As used for
storage capacity, one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible
capacity varies depending on operating environment. Active power draws are up
to 25% lower during sequential reads than previous generations of WD Blue SSD
at the 500GB capacity point. As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte
per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second and gigabit per second (Gb/s)
= one billion bits per second. MTTF = Mean Time To Failure based on internal
testing using Telcordia stress part testing. TBW (terabytes written) values
calculated using JEDEC client workload (JESD219) and vary by product capacity.
