Western Digital Jumps (Back) Into SSDs

Western Digital has once again delved into the realm of SSDs. They bought SanDisk earlier this year and they are now using that technology to market products under their own brand. They have the "Green" and "Blue" drives currently. Just like their mechanical counterparts, the Green drives are geared to the entry-level consumer with the Blue drives geared more for mainstream users.

Their WD Blue solid-state drives come in 250 GB, 500 GB and 1 TB sizes as a higher-performance line available globally to "select customers," according to their press release. The lower-powered WD Green SSDs, coming in 120 GB and 240 GB, will have a more limited release later this quarter in certain regions.
