Get 3 or more in RAID 0
31 March 2012
Summary: You want to pick between purchasing an SSD or an HDD? Here's a thought. If you just want fast access performance for programs and everyday computing I would suggest buying three or more Velociraptor hard drives.
Summary: The Drive works prefectly, Sensors say it's running a little hot but I only use the Drive for applications. Data storage goes to slave Drives. The Product was delievered faster then expected and I have to say I'm pleased with the new Drive but it doesn't seem that applications are loading any...
Pros: Great speed Great hard drive I love the Raptor the perform really nice. bought it as a laptop replacement for Toshiba laptop, it is thinker then 7200rpm and will not fit. DO not buy it for your laptop.

Summary: This is a nice, fast disk, as should be expected. I have had no problems with it so far after one month of use.

Summary: This item does not include a SATA cable. Spend the .50 cents extra now, order one from an independent online retailor. If you try to buy a SATA cable at "Best Buy" plan on spending $25!!!!! I did and it was a humiliating experience.
Geat drives but I believe whomever listed these is WAAAY off on the price.

Summary: Compared to other drives WD's warranty beats the others for the price especially 5 year coverage on the Raptors and Blacks. The 10K rpm WD drives have a nice mounting to dissipate the heat that these high-performance drives crank out.
Summary: I don't have test equipment and since I was reloading all new software I did not have the benefit of a known system that I could compare the feel of a single component change. Never the less I did my homework before choosing this to purchase the WD Raptor and I have never seen programs load as fast...
Summary: If you're familiar with the previous Raptor drives, you have an idea of the amazing performance delivered by WD's enterprise drives. One word of caution though: The models ending in GLFS, such as this one, have the SATA connector in a nonstandard location.
