  • Summary: The hard drives were the best value I have found. At present all hard drives are installed in HP Proliant 1u and 2u Servers and have been running without any issues.

A balance between the speed of an SSD and the value of a regular HDD

MehStrongBadMeh, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • Summary: I use this primarily as a dedicated video game hard drive, with a separate SSD for the OS and a large regular HDD for for all my documents and media. It certainly reduces load times compared to the regular HDD that preceded it.

I was considering an SSD but I am quite pleased with the decision to go for more drive space ...

Robert Pollock, Amazon

  • Summary: $99.99 was a fair price, I thought. I was considering an SSD but I am quite pleased with the decision to go for more drive space and a little less speed. It Increased my boot time by about 25 seconds with Win 7.

These are the best, quickest & most excellent Hard Drives ever!

  • Summary: These are--for the money--the way to go for the fastest and most reliable of any and all Hard Drives out there! This is my 4th WD VelociRaptor Hard Drive purchase and for my setup, I installed them in a Raid configuration for my workstation.

Next best thing to a solid state drive

C. Collier "Clint Collier", Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this to replace a 300 that was my boot drive. Arrive in only a few days; I cloned my boot drive using Acronis, opened up my computer, slid the old one out and inserted this one and now have double my space! Worked like a charm. Good price, great shipping; it doesn't get any better.

Older technology that's still faster than most other hard drives

Call_Them_As_I_See_Them, Amazon

  • Summary: Yes, this is old technology, but I was able to clone my failing Raptor from an older computer onto this Raptor and keep my old but reliable workhorse computer running strong. Used BING to image the old disk; booted from a BING iso CD, imposed the old image onto the new Raptor and used Windows System...

One Of The Fastest Mechanical Drives

Darren O'Neill, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: I've been running this as the main drive in my machine for about two years now. On it's own it is fast and it's about the third or fourth VelociRaptor I've had over the years. They are rock solid in the stability department and really do shine in the speed aspect.

Avoid and get an SSD instead.

JT, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: Like many others, I have been severely disappointed in this drive (Velociraptor 600 GB SATA III 32 MB Cache). Specifically: 1) High performance is attained only with certain controllers. This is very unlike other SATA III hard disk drives.

Good heatsink, but too expensive

S. Bachilo, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I had WD3000HLHX as a system disk on Windows 7, and now use a RAID0 with two of them. A) Positive. The main plus of the drives is their rather low temperature for HDDs with short seek time, corresponding to 10k rpm.

Absolutely Awesome

Vinnie, Amazon
22 April 2013
  • Summary: One of the fastest harddrives I've ever owned. I bought this because of its sale price one day and am glad I did. It makes everything installed onto it move noticeably faster.
