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.

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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Solid Preformance, reliable. Low cost per G/B
  • Cons: Not as fast as an SSD-but who cares.

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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
