The power of two

WD has redefined the PC with the next big thing in ultra-fast performance storage. Introducing WD Black2, the world's first 2.5-inch dual drive storage solution. The WD Black2 dual drive is a completely new approach in a compromised solid-state and hybrid storage market. Finally you can have the speed of an SSD that you want and the capacity of a hard drive that you need in your notebook or all-in-one PC

Inspired by you

Your requests to make the notebook and all-in-one PC experience better, faster and more dynamic have been heard. We took the challenge and made it our mission to design a storage solution that delivers the ultimate experience. The WD Black2 dual drive solves your storage limitations and adds true high-performance SSD speed to your PC. The WD Black2 dual drive is the drive you were waiting for, inspired by and created specifically for enthusiasts like you.

Professional performance

WD Black2 is built by fusing two world-class storage devices together into one dual drive to create the ultimate experience for notebooks and all-in-one PCs. Boot up faster to your operating system with the speed of SSD at your fingertips. WD Black2 features innovative 20nm NAND flash with remarkable power efficiency that is poised to redefine what is possible in the storage industry.

Reduce SSD wear and tear

SSD performance can degrade when total capacities are reached or after a finite number of writes have been reached, which is a major concern for SSD users. We built our dual drive solution to curb these problems. With our WD Black2, you can move your larger data or write-intensive applications onto the 1 TB hard drive, ultimately extending the life of the SSD and maintaining optimal performance across the dual drive.

For the creative pro

Now you can load your OS, photo and video editing programs on the SSD and save all of your capacity-heavy RAW photo and video files to the 1 TB HDD. Keep it all local and readily available on your notebook or all-in-one PC without slowing system performance.

For the gamer inside you

Turn your dual-purpose notebook or all-in-one PC into the high-performance gaming machine of your dreams. The dual drive's fully accessible SSD allows you to place your OS and favorite game software directly on the SSD which results in faster boot times and smoother game play while still having separate storage capacity available for your work and personal files.

Shift_Technology

WD Black2 Shift_Technology is race-ready from the starting line with enhanced firmware and improved algorithms for faster performance and data management. Features include:


  • 20nm architecture with quad channel NAND processing for increased speed and performance
  • WD customized controller built for increased efficiency of data management per cell resulting in less drag on your PC
  • Improved drive integrity with 8 GB of space for provisioning to help protect and improve SSD reliability

  • WD Black2 Shift_Technology allows you to migrate larger data files to the hard drive and provides your SSD with less system drag, which increases the overall endurance and mileage of the SSD. With less caching involved, there's less time waiting and more time enjoying the things you love to do most.

Finesse of perfection

WD Black2 combines the shock and vibration resistance of SSD with the proven technology of the HDD for one truly agile and highly reliable dual drive storage solution. Advanced firmware and intelligent algorithms assist in heightened performance, resulting in cooler temperatures with nearly inaudible operation.

Industry-leading 5-year limited warranty

Relentlessly dedicated to your data, the WD Black2 dual drive carries the same industry-leading 5-year limited warranty as WD's other performance storage drives.


You take the control

With WD Black2 the decision is yours. Safer than using an SSD as your only primary storage device, now you are enabled to save your data on the 1 TB hard drive, or split data between both. Take full control and manage the location of your personal data.
