      Enhance laptop storage space with the easy-to-install Western Digital Mainstream 2.5” Internal Hard Drive.

      Secure storage

      The WD Mainstream brings 500 GB worth of storage to your portable computing, allowing you to store a library of photos, videos and music.

      It's also an ideal replacement or upgrade thanks to the Acronis True Image cloning software. Available for free from the WD Support Site, it makes light work of migrating your old hard drive's content, including the OS.

      You can expect long-term reliability thanks to No Touch Ramp Load technology. This ensures the recording head never actually touches the disk media, significantly reducing wear and providing better protection when mobile.

      Installation

      Advanced power management provides low power consumption figures during everyday use, making the WD Mainstream a perfect match-up for your laptop.

      You can buy with confidence as WD exhaustively test their hard drives on a multitude of platforms to guarantee they work on almost every conceivable platform.

      Store your documents, images and media content safely on the reliable WD Mainstream 2.5” Internal Hard Drive, offered with a two-year guarantee.

      • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
      • Local stores with stock you can collect from now

      Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

      Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.
