  • Summary: Under the flag of the Velociraptor-Series Western Digital presents fast spinning drives suitable for the Enterprise and High-End Gaming segment. Contrary to the momentary trend to bring magnet-writing drives to the customer with cheap prices and high capacities, Western Digital walks the opposite way: The drives only come in rather low capacities but because of the high spinning speed very small access times.
  • Pros: High rotation speed of 10.000 rpm, 64 MB DRAM-Cache, SATA 6 Gbit/s as Interface, IcePack-Cooling
  • Cons: Moderate Capacity, Loudness, Price

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. And, the series even comes in a 4TB solution which is just a whole lot of storage space but be prepared for adding 2 pounds a hard drive to your chassis.

  • 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. Choosing to approach the review in this manner, was a decision made based on the fact that the Western Digital VelociRaptor drive is in a bit of an identity crisis as it no longer dominates some of the areas it used to.

Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB (WD1000DHTZ) Review

16 April 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. Random IO performance is at least double most 3.5" drives, and sequential performance is almost 50% better than the fastest competitors.

WD Velociraptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB SATA III Storage Drive Review

  • 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. But the performance does overshadow it because its significantly quicker compared to the previous gen.

  • Summary: I bought two of these hard drives to support my super computer which has 2No GTX 690's in Sli mode, i7 3960X Extreme CPU and Asus Rampage IV Motherboard. I have actually just plugged them into my Sata II port, because my Sata III port are fully occupied, but none the less I am receiving super fast seek and response time. For example, I have loaded almost 150 games on these drives.

Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ HDD

30 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Totgesagte leben bekanntlich länger, das trifft nicht nur auf Karl Ranseier zu, sondern gilt gleichermaßen für die ferro-magnetischen Datenträger, um so mehr für die Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ Festplatte, die auf Grund ihrer Transferleistungen, Zugriffszeiten und Kapazitätsvergrößerung durchaus noch eine gehörige Portion Daseinberechtigung vorweisen kann.
  • Pros: exzellente Verarbeitung und Haptik, gute bis sehr gute sequentielle Transferleistungen, sehr gute Zugriffszeiten, Einsatz in Raid-Arrays problemlos möglich, 24/7 Betrieb ausdrücklich unterstützt, relativ gute thermische Eigenschaften durch IcePack Rahmen, verbesserter Stromverbrauch, unkompliziertes Einbinden ins vorhandene System, deutschsprachiger Support mit vielen kostenlosen Downloadoptionen, noch akzetables Preis-Leistungsverhältnis (ca. 250 €), sehr ...
  • Cons: laute Zugriffsgeräusche

Тест и обзор: WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ

26 March 2013
  • Summary: Новая линейка Western Digital VelociRaptor действительно несёт долгожданные улучшения. Мы получили увеличение ёмкости, кэш-памяти и плотности хранения данных, что привело к росту пропускной способности чтения и записи. Накопители Raptor нацелены на корпоративные окружения и RAID-массивы в хорошо проветриваемых серверных системах с интенсивной нагрузкой, но вся прелесть в том, что любой геймер или энтузиаст сможет использовать такой жёсткий диск в своей системе.
  • Pros: Высокая скорость вращения шпинделя 10 000 об/мин, 64 Мбайт кэш-памяти DRAM, Интерфейс SATA 6 Гбит/с, Система охлаждения IcePack
  • Cons: Средняя ёмкость для HDD, Высокий уровень шума, Высокая цена
