WD Black 2 Dual Drive HDD
The WD Black 2 Dual Drive shipped in its retail upgrade packaging.
The WD Black 2 Dual Drive is marketed as an upgrade solution. Thus, we have the full kit to complete the operation. In the box, you will find the drive itself, along with an external adapter for connecting your old drive after installation. Additionally, you will find a hefty manual in several languages and the software on a USB key.
The WD Black 2 carries an outward appearance similar to a solid state drive. Here we have a black PCB, with branding in gold lettering.
The WD Black 2 uses standard SATA power and data connections.
The bottom of the drive houses the model identification, and the platter PCB.
Removing the solid state PCB revealed the WD Slim 1TB HDD underneath.
Here we have our first look at the SSD itself, powered by a JMicron 667H controller and two NAND packages.
Initially, the WD Black 2 only allows the OS to see the SSD. This is to insure there is no confusion when installing your operating system. After you have successfully installed the OS, you can then use the included USB Key to launch the software and unlock the HDD portion of the drive.
After the software installs and unlocks the HDD, a prompt allows you to restart your PC.
