Solid Drives. FAST. But WATCH The SATA Connections

Pros: FAST. Dependable drives. Prices have come down.
Cons: Use kit gloves when plugging in your SATA cables. The first day my VRaptors arrived I spun them up with no issue. Got everything loaded and installed. Had to move one drive to another bay, and the SATA connection on the ICE housing snapped off in the cable (with the lightest touch).Had to glue it back together(with the cable glued in place). Going to be a mess when I try to move the drives to my next build.
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
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.
Pros: First just let me say that WD is in my opinion are the best hhd on the market. I have had this drive for only 1 day but from what I can tell so far it works great booted right up ,loaded windows good to go. Not as loud as others say it is
Cons: Well the price ,but I guess if you want the best product on the market you gotta pay the piper
Summary: Quick and easy install as with all hard drives. Seems extremely well built. Notice increased speed in loading programs but I should have done transfer speed tests both before and after. However, I am disappointed in the Windows Performance Test. It has the exact same reading as before installing the drive, 5.9, which is my lowest score in the system. I also installed a new SATA 3.0 card and got the same results. Can't justify cost to performance.
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.
Western Digital schafft es die Lautstärke erheblich zu mindern. Super schnelle Magnetplatte

Summary: Im Vergleich zur Raptor 150 GB ist diese Variante erheblich leiser. Die Leistung ist an einem SATA III ( 6GB) Port sehr schnell und Win7 startet sehr zügig. Auf meinem AMD 6 Core 1100 BE dauert der Start 19 Sekunden. Das Gehäuse ist solide und leitet die Wärem effektif ab ( Das sollten alle Festplatten haben :-) ) Leider wird kein Partizionierungstool wie aus dem Hause Samsung gewohnt mitgeliefert. Die Festplatte kann Gamern wärmstens empfohlen werden !
Summary: Die Festplatte ist bei mir nicht viel schneller als eine Herkömmlische Festplatte. Man kann das bei Windows 7 unter System Leistungsindex feststellen. Geräusche macht die Festplatte nur wenn Sie am Arbeiten ist. Ansonsten ist Sie genauso ruhig wie eine normal Festplatte. Die Platte könnte beim Arbeiten etwas lautloser sein, aber sonst bin ich mit der Festplatte zufrieden.
