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.

  • Summary: To resume. This disk do not work with MOBO intel DX58SO2. Because the controller sata of the mobo don't work for Velociraptor. The disk works perfect, but I cant used in my pc. I just bought a pcie-sata controller, to test the combination.

  • Summary: Using these drives for years for servers and workstations. Terrific for RAID applications. The pricing for my last purchase was sensational. I bought them for when needed. Great deal, great product and delivered when promised.

  • Summary: Works exactly as expected. Does all the things a hard drive should, but quicker. Should last quite a while, have 2 of them mirroring each other to hold my Dropbox and other important stuff. Way quieter than I expected. I am impressed.

  • Summary: I've owned the velociprator since building my own PC back in 2009. Since then, the hard drive has caused no problems what soever. On top of that, Windows 7 64 bit loads withing 20-30 seconds still after 4 years of heavy use.

Fast..... But Noisy.

  • Summary: This is my first 10,000 rpm drive and I was looking for speed without the expense and problems of an SSD drive (2 ssd's died a fast death.) This drive is fast but is very noisy. You will know every disk access as you get plenty of noise. Bootup sounds like its making popcorn. Yes, its defraged.....

Overall Better Than SSD

Kaio, Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: I have used at least two Solid State Storage (SSD) disks as operating systems drive over the recent years. Now I've come to a conclusion that SSDs are a bit over-hyped, and also their 'premium' storage space (due to very high cost per GB) dictates that close attention such as regular tidying up is...

  • Summary: Had my 300GB raptor for nearly 2 years and it hasnt let me down yet. Very easy to install and pretty quiet too. I use a 300GB but 600GB is available and not expensive. Good job Western Digital.
