Summary: if you want your computer to respond like you see computers acting in all those movies with fancy screens and what nots, then you have no other choice but to get a raptor from western digital... they really are faster than ssd and cheaper for what you get...
Summary: Excellent drive. I setup an HP DL380 G6 and wanted to use the expensive 10K SAS drives for boot, the less expensive SATA for storage - turns out these drives are very fast indeed. The RAID 5 array had no problem being built, ordering more. Great bargain.
Conclusion: For most of our “Final Thoughts” pages, coming up with a conclusion of sorts isn’t difficult. But it is with the VR 1TB. The reason is that while the drive is in a class of its own, and it the fastest mechanical drive ever produced, it’s not for everyone.
Summary: I love this reptile. is just brutally quick and ultra reliable. a really cheap way of improve your pc if you can't afford an SSD or just need higher capacity (bigger raptor is 600gb. SSD is 512gb and price out of this universe, like 1k $$). really quiet for a 10k rpm. I mention his reliability?
