WD Quality

Built to the highest standards of quality and reliability, these drives offer the features and capacity ideal for your everyday computing needs.


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.

Upgrading your drive is easy - WD Acronis TrueImage, available as a free download on the WD Support site, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to get all the benefits of a new drive.

Note: This is a bare drive and does not include any cables. We also have spare SATA cables for desktops.

The WD advantage - WD put their products through extensive Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) prior to any product launch. On average, each new product goes through 600,000 hours of testing.
