From the manufacturer

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. Lab and WD Blue are registered trademarks or trademarks of Western Digital Corporation or its affiliates in the US and/or other countries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy quick install in Windows 10, value for money and with excellent benchmark speeds
By kanga on 10 June 2021
Arrived well packed and performed a fresh install of Windows in under 10 minutes. Very fast and comes with WD 5 year warranty. I purchased at Amazon Mid-Year 2021 sale and was a bargain for $68 for 500GB, but price has since risen.
My old HP desktop is born again with 10 second boot and shutdown times.

Reviewed in Mexico on 22 February 2018
Mi conclusión sobre cuál SSD elegir es simple, de las marcas y productos Samsung 860 EVO, Western Digital Blue 3D NAND, Sandisk Ultra 3D y Crucial MX500 compra el más barato. Yo sé que existen otras marcas pero esas son las que considero mejores para montar el sistema operativo, utilizar como almacenamiento auxiliar (recomendado para juegos) y almacenamiento externo (que no recomiendo tanto). En mi opinión la mejor marca, la que tiene el mejor soporte, las mayores velocidades, el mejor controlador y el mejor software es Samsung, es el rey. Aun así, compré este WD Blue de 1 TB con la intensión de utilizarlo en una PS4 y consolas de versiones posteriores. Me ha dejado satisfecho en cuanto a rendimiento y precio.
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.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 March 2019
Hi
So I ordered this SSD as my mechanical HDD was getting on for 5 years old and had done quite a bit of work, so thought before it crashes I will upgrade. The idea being to clone my existing C: drive and at the same time speed the PC up.

My mother board is a Z97 from ASUS and has four 6G/s SATA 3 ports. so can handle SSD drives. So before you start this process here is what I recommend.

1. Do a 'checkdisk' on your old main drive because if there are any errors it (old C: drive), the drive won't clone.
2. If you are using the 'Acronis true image' program that is available free from WD then you need to buy an SSD disk that is the same capacity as your old disk or the clone wont work as it seemed to want to clone the empty bit of the old drive.
3. If you don't want to spend the extra £160 odd on an extra TB like me (My old disk was 2TB and the SSD is 1TB) then be prepared to pay for another program that can clone bigger drives to smaller drives like EaseUS Partition Master. (£20 odd ish)
4. You don't need to buy an external USB connector to clone the drive just disconnect your other drives inside your PC and use those SATA ports.
5. Don't expect the drive to perform as per the MNF claims. WD reckon the is drive reads at 560MB/s and Writes at 530B/s as you can see from the attached picture my read speed wasn't far off but the write speed is way off their claimed speed. (writing may be a more complex process, who knows..)
6. This drive is slimmer it seems than the slots in my PC so you might need an adapter sled.

Overall I am not disappointed but it was a lot faffier than I expected it to be and it does perform faster than my mechanical drive which is now drive 3 in the picture running at 120MB/s write speed. The product is a a 5 start product, but it got 4 because of the install complexities.
