WD Blue ultra-slim 2.5-inch, 5 mm hard drive. MSRP: s$119.

With 500 GB of storage capacity and models with high performance-enabling solid state hybrid drive technology, this slim product line strikes a fine balance between capacity, physical size and performance.

WD Blue UltraSlim

WD Blue UltraSlim

WD designed the new WD Blue and WD Black 5 mm drives to enable new levels of device portability.

The new drives are aimed to increase internal storage capacity while enabling it to fit into smaller device slots

In addition, the slimmer and more portable the device, the more vulnerable the hard drive is to user-induced stress.

To battle this, WD has designed key enablers to the 5 mm form factor:

  • Ultra-slim Form Factor – 5 mm height with compact connector offers system designers a greater degree of chassis design freedom. This ultra-slim form factor reduces weight by up to 36 percent compared with a standard 9.5 mm drive.
