Nice drive - good price

,, TigerDirect.com
25 April 2014
  • Summary: This drive caught my eye because of the 5 year warranty, and the 10k rpm. I find the price completely reasonable for a drive with these specs. Although, like others here, I didn't do a before and after performance test, I did notice a difference in program load and file save times. This drive, used for constantly changing data, coupled with my SSD for static system files, is as good as it gets! Am I pleased with it? Yes! Would I buy another? Yes!

Alright

  • Summary: It seems to do what it's supposed to. My only issue that I have with it is that on a system where it is a secondary drive, it stay off until it is requested and then it spins up and spins down when finishing. These spin up and down sounds are quite audible, though the running sound is well hidden by the other fans in my system.

  • Summary: If your looking for lots of storage, Enterprise Quality(5 year warranty), solid performance -all at a much better cost than expensive SSD's, I would go with this drive. Cost per G/B the 1TB velociraptor wins hands down over SSD. HD is also very very quiet-makes virtually no noise, though other reviews claim it chirps and spins audibly-mine is virtually silent.
  • Pros: Solid Preformance, reliable. Low cost per G/B
  • Cons: Not as fast as an SSD-but who cares.

Usually a very good Brand

  • Summary: This is my second one that arrived DoA . I always buy WD and have never had problems with them until now . Could not format and install windows at all. Drive was making a lot of rattling noise. thanks to their great service they took them back no problem and I'll continue to buy from them because of this service in the future.

Advertised as a 2.5 inch, it really is a 3.5 inch

Carl Dinse, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Not until after I received this hard drive did I realize it isn't really a 2.5inch drive. It is inside of a special heatsink that fits in 3.5 inch bays, however it voids the warranty if you remove the hard drive from the heatsink. Also, the hard drive requires the heatsink to avoid premature failure.

  • Summary: This is a fantastic storage and performance grade hard drive that I've owned for some time. I first had the original Velicoraptor 300Gb (before the SATA revision layout change)and I've picked up several of these drives to use for performance hard-drives. I would recommend them for storage and for crunching data as a secondary drive in addition to a SSD.
  • Pros: Best consumer grade and entry-level enterprise 3.5" hard drive
  • Cons: Not useful for primary boot drives

Oh Yeah !!!

  • Summary: I just ordered 2 of them. I always used Raptors for my Raid 0 Array. I wouldn't consider anything else for the price & reliability. I know fast & large capacity SSD's are still too expensive & you need to be careful how you treat them. From what I've read you cant defrag an SSD without loosing life expectancy. I just don't like that thought. At this price I just could not say no,& yes the 5 year warranty is awesome.
