WDC’s WD Blue and WD Green SSDs have the capability to boast near-maximum speed of SATA drives, MTTF and WD Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) Lab certification, resulting in quick boot times and increased program responsiveness.

Western Digital Corporation today announced the first WD- branded SATA client SSDs, the WD Blue and WD Green solid state drives (SSDs). The drives will provide a full portfolio of WD storage devices for virtually any application.

The SSDs are a definitive solution for building DIY PCs, extending the life of current PCs and upgrading the present storage. The WD Blue and WD Green SSDs also have the capability to boast near-maximum speed of SATA drives, MTTF and WD Functional Integrity Testing (F.I.T.) Lab certification, resulting in quick boot times and increased program responsiveness.

Consumers will greatly benefit from the combination of reliable storage coupled with an industry-leading 1.75M hours MTTF. This is accompanied with reduced power and less heat when compared to HDDs. Both drives include free, downloadable, WD SSD Dashboard software, which allows continuous performance and capacity monitoring. The new SSD offering is apt for consumers who are looking for instant-on responsiveness, durability, low power consumption, and ultra-thin, ultramobile form factors.
