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 storage capacity, one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. 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. Western Digital, WD, the WD logo, F.I.T.

So I went ahead, clone my existing 2TB 5400 HD onto the SSD using SuperDuper!, and swapped the SSD into the MacBook Pro.
Rebooted, and voilá - opened with no dramas (other than having to re-validate 2012 MSOffice).
Ran some speed tests - system boots 500% faster, LibreOffice for Mac opens 8x faster (previously very slow), and Handbrake, burning DVDs and all apps open & operate way quicker! Works perfectly via wireless with Time Machine on an 8TB WD MyCloud device, and I now use the old HD 2TB drive as an extra backup via SuperDuper!
Couldn’t be happier with the unit, and can thoroughly recommend it to any one wanting to extend the mid-2012 (or earlier) MacBook or Pro for a few more years.
Easy to install and set up. Drive manufactured June 2020.
However, WD management tool identifies the drive as a Sandisk 1TB SSD and not the labelled WD Blue 1TB SSD.
Note: after a bit of research, it seems WD (which owns Sandisk), chose to use the same parts in both drives (WD & Sandisk) manufactured in early to mid-2020.
All good - is working like a dream

1 What is a ssd ?
ANS A ssd or solid state drive is a storage device like a harddisk but the spinning disks are replaced by memory modules and is a lot faster and more reliable than even the modern harddisks
2 How fast are they
ANS SSDs are amazingly fast in this products case it is an SATA ssd so it is limited to 600mpbs in a SATA 3 port and 150mpbs in SATA 2. That is just for SATA ssd but for NVME drives it is a whole another story
3 NVME What is that
ANS NVME or non volatile memory express is a host controller interface by which an m.2 ssd is connected to a ×4 pcie slot and these four lanes are connected directly to the cpu giving you blazing fast read and writes
4 What is TCL
ANS SLC - single level cell 1 bit per cell
MLC -multi level cell 2 bits per cell
TLC - triple level cell 3 bits per cell
Now about the product product it is manufactured on 12nm San disk memory chips
1 . 3 YEARS WARRANTY
2 . 400 TB DATA WRITTEN WHICH IS THE HIGHEST
TLC can store three bits per cell for greater data density and more capacious SSDs in the same form factor but its sustained write performance is comparatively poor to SLC and MLC based drives
It is a wonderful product and I will recommend it to all my friends but not all of us can afford a ssd for our computers if you have tight budget but still need faster than harddisk performance I suggest you take a look at SSHD or Solid State Hybrid Drive it is not as fast but relatively cheap
PS : It is an electrostatic sensitive device please GROUND YOURSELF BEFORE HANDLING the product to discharge any esd
If you buy this product please take the time to write about the things you love or hate about it
AS ALLWAYS THANK YOU FOR READING THIS REVIEW IF YOU FOUND THIS HELPFULL OR UNHELPFUL YOU KNOW WHAT TO
Amazon told me that manufacturer would be able to help. Called WD and they did an RMA process for me since there is a 3 yr warranty on the SSD. Had to drop off the bad drive at their local center - they tested and confirmed it was bad. A replacement will be mailed to me in a week or so - but it will be a refurbished drive and not a new one!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hoping that the replacement comes in working condition.
A bitter experience overall - paying retail price to finally get a used drive!!! Thanks Amazon! - for tossing me over to the manufacturer.
Update (20 Nov 18)
WD sent me a replacement, which looks like a new drive (not refurbished, as I was told by their support team). I cloned my HDD and installed it. laptop working much faster now. I am upgrading the review to a 4 star from a 1 star because of my experience dealing with WD. Despite the early pain, the whole WD replacement experience was rather smooth - I want to show my appreciation for this.
In the event it’s worked a treat. My PC now boots up to windows login in about 20 seconds and applications like outlook, excel, browsers, open up more or less instantaneously. I’d have been happy with that result from the £600 spend and doubt I’d have even noticed anything quicker. The only games I still play are ancient and undemanding, so unless something else wears out I’d hope to have the effect of a new pc for maybe another 2 or 3 years by which time everything I’d have bought today will be cheap as chips.
As for the SSD itself, I’m afraid I can’t really tell you anything useful that would help differentiate between this one and another one. I’ve used WD forever and it’s creditable that the HDD drives this has replaced were 7 and 18 years old respectively.
Fitting it was of course a doddle, if you can replace a fuse you can replace a hard drive, just remember to check whether you need a 2.5 to 3.5 inch bracket to mount it in the case as older cases often don’t have 2.5 inch drive bays.
Al principio, me preocupaba mucho por el desempeño (velocidades) del SSD. Me di cuenta de que los SSD que mencioné antes son similares entre sí y su funcionamiento es casi imperceptible. Mi sugerencia es comprar el que tenga el mejor precio y que se ajuste a tus necesidades.
