Western Digital's 1TB Velociraptor (WD1000DHTZ) and 2TB Black (WD2002FAEX) Hard Drives Reviewed

31 July 2013
  • Summary: When considering performance and price, the 2TB WD Black is still an excellent cost benefit contender at $160 US/CA. It's quiet yet still surprises with decent output as far as platter based hard drives are concerned.

  • Cons: Will generate some heat, Weighs nearly 2 pounds each, Price makes one consider an SSD, IcePack doesn't really cool anything

Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB (WD1000DHTZ) Review

3 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The new VelociRaptor does reclaim its title as world's fastest client hard drive, and I do appreciate the fact that WD hasn't raised prices on the drive in the past two years either. Compared to any 3.5" drive on the market today, the new VR is significantly faster without a doubt.

  • Summary: First, I hope you haven’t read through this review and deduced that the WD1000DHTZ drive as a failure…as that is surely not the case. To be fair, we weren’t comparing apples to apples in this review as no HDD will ever directly compete with an SSD.

  • Summary: The noise during the time when you access the drive for reading and writing. It doesn’t sound like a coffee grinder but its somewhere near that. This drive’s grinding noise is the perfect candidate for a product’s testing methodology I hope to implement in the near future.

Test WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ: 1TB a 10 000 rpm

19 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Špičková řada výkonných disků WD VelociRaptor, jediných 10000otáčkových disků pro „běžné“ uživatele, se dočkala nových ploten, díky kterým narostla rychlost, kapacita a zlepšil se i poměr ceny/GB. O kolik předčí starší 2TB modely se 7200 ot./min a má šanci i proti běžnému SSD?
  • Pros: + nejrychlejší klasický desktopový disk, + podstatně větší kapacita než cenově dostupná SSD, + záruka 5 let při provozu 24/7, + lepší poměr cena/výkon než u SSD, + nižší spotřeba než 7200otáčkové disky, + poměr cena/GB lepší než u starších modelů
  • Cons: − vysoká cena/GB (ve srovnání s 7200ot. disky), − menší modely se moc nevyplatí, − hlučný seek, − Advanced Format (komplikuje používání starších utilit a OS)
