Post WD Black2 is World's First SSD+HDD Dual Drive


WD announced the release of the WD Black2 dual drive, a unique storage innovation that fuses a 2.5-inch 120GB solid state drive (SSD) with a 1TB hard disk drive (HDD) to offer a powerful dual drive solution. Perfect for consumers and service providers looking to upgrade notebooks, small form factor desktops, and single-slot and all-in-one (AIO) systems with both SSD level performance and HDD capacity, the WD Black2 dual drive connects through a single cable and fits into a conventional 9.5mm slot.

Our customers told us they like our Solid State Hybrid Drive technology, but our tech savvy users asked for more control of where they store their data, said Matt Rutledge, senior vice president of WDs Storage Technology business unit. The WD Black2 dual drives empower our customers to enjoy SSD performance and access high capacity storage in a no-compromise package.

The WD Black2 dual drive is a direct result of our interaction with our customer base through WD Labs initiatives. WD devised its beta labs program to provide an exclusive testing arena for key customers and technology influencers of existing and emerging WD storage products."

Designed for enthusiasts, creative professionals, gamers, and PC builders, the WD Black2 dual drive provides improved overall drive capacity, performance, and reliability, while offering the flexibility to choose how and where their data is stored. Utilizing the benefits of both flash and magnetic disks, WD Black2 dual drives offload data usage from the SSD to the HDD, which increases endurance and life of the SSD. Users maintain greater data control, which can eliminate the need and expense of cloud-based storage.

The WD Black2 is free of caching algorithms and benefits from SATA 6Gbs interface speed. It is neatly packaged in a standard 9.5mm, 2.5-inch form factor with legacy SATA connector, making the WD Black2 dual drive compatible with popular PC operating systems ranging from Windows XP to Windows 8.1.

Price and Availability

Available now at select retailers such as PC Hub (Gilmore Branch), Thinking Tools (PC Quick Buy SM), PC Express (Beyond PC Megamall) and Blinque (Davao Branch), WD Black2 dual drives are distributed by Ubertech, Inc. in the Philippines; and are covered by a five-year limited warranty. MSRP for the 2.5-inch 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD WD Black2 dual drive, model #: WD1001X06XDTL, is PhP 13,950.
