For Creatives & Enthusiasts
Whether you’re a photographer, video editor, digital artist, or want to build your own system, look no further than WD Black drives as your go-to solution. WD Black drives deliver inspiring performance for storing large multimedia files of photos, videos and applications.
Tuned for performance and perfect for gaming, WD Black drives offer large capacities to store your expanding gaming library. Plan for the future of your gaming PC with enough capacity for extra downloadable game content and combine with an SSD for maximum PC performance.
Every WD Black drive is backed by an industry leading 5-year limited warranty. Compared to standard hard drives such as WD Blue, WD Black hard drives pass more strenuous and aggressive internal testing over a longer period of time.
WD's Dynamic Cache Technology improves performance in real time to allocate and optimize cache between reads and writes.
Dual-Core Processing: The WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers twice the processing capability as a standard single-core processor to maximize drive performance, especially for loading games or large multimedia files.
Increased Reliability: WD Black drives are equipped with StableTrac Technology (2 TB and larger models). This secures the motor shaft inside the hard drive to increase reliability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, WD Black drives result in more accurate tracking in a particular sector during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.
