WD Black 2 Dual Drive Combines SSD, HDD in One Non-Hybrid Unit

Posted by at 10:48 am on November 25, 2013

Western Digital has released the Black 2 Dual Drive, a product that merges an SSD and an HDD into the same component. The unit isn’t an SSHD; instead, the SSD (120GB) and HDD (1TB) partitions are separate, giving people more control over where data is stored. Data usage is typically offloaded to the HDD, though, in theory improving the longevity of the SSD.

The Dual Drive fits into 2.5-inch SATA slots; the SSD partition is rated at speeds up to 6Gbps. The product costs $299, and is available either directly from Western Digital or through online vendors.
