Get 3 or more in RAID 0

I4Y, Amazon
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.

Not what I was expecting

RJGoodhouse, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • 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...

Don't expect Windows Experience Index to go up, unless you RAID

Nick Birkner, Amazon
28 September 2010
  • 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. However, if you are trying to get your Windows Experience Index to go up, you had better be prepared to buy two of these for a RAID setup, because this drive is being rated at 5.9, the...

Good to go...

Bill "Bill", Amazon
3 August 2010
  • 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.

Fast but Noisy

Eric B., Newegg
14 May 2010
  • Summary: Great drive for any application where you won't be sitting right next to where the drive is. FYI: You only receive the BARE 2.5" drive.
  • Pros: Very Fast Drives! Purchased 3 and setup in RAID5 and they work flawlessly!
  • Cons: I don't know why, but they are really noisy drives. I hope that's just the way they are and I didn't end up with a bad batch.

Geat drives but I believe whomever listed these is WAAAY off on the price.

FuzzyLogician "_-PFB-_", Amazon
2 February 2010
  • 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.

It works

Doug Laursen "Tech Guy", Amazon
26 January 2010
  • 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...

Fast drive - odd form factor

McGroarty, Amazon
26 January 2010
  • 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.
