Great Drive from WD

George K., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Pros: Have always been a proponent of WD drives for my builds. Have never had one arrive DOA. VelociRaptors are my drive of choice for the OS & Applications. Data & backups go onto slower speed WD HDDs. 1TB might be a little overkill, but, this drive seemed to have the best price point at the time of o...
  • Cons: It's not free

Great drive, RE: Sector sizes

Anonymous, Newegg
16 September 2014
  • Summary: To work around the SQL Server sector size issue you could create a .vhd file with 512b sector size, mount it, and put your db files on this mounted 512b 'virtual disk' Check out the syntax for the 'New-VHD' powershell cmdlet, I think you might need to install Hyper-V to get this tool though, not...
  • Pros: FAST, even at the outer edge of the disk, excellent seek times due to the tiny platters and high RPMs
  • Cons: availability issues recently

WD Veloci Raptor 1 TB 10K RPM

Bank A., Newegg
2 September 2014
  • Pros: Excellent Drive! I have mostly SSD's in all of my computers. I was impressed with the SSD like performance. I copied a huge file, almost a terabyte in as little as 15-20 seconds.
  • Cons: Non except for the Price jump. I am glad I bought it when I did. I only paid $184 with shipping. That was in the first week of July. What happened???

Awesome HDD

Russell O., Newegg
16 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to replace a failing 1TB Seagate Barracuda (that was repaired about 2 years ago). I use this VelociRaptor primarily for storing documents and for programs I don't use every day.
  • Pros: This drive seems to be very fast for a harddrive. Obviously its not going to be as fast as SSDs but it is definitely faster than any harddrive I have ever used. When I open up a folder I have full of high resolution desktop backgrounds (1080p+) ...the thumbnails for the files all load INSTANTLY w...
  • Cons: Its expensive. Really expensive for a HDD. I don't think I'll spend this much money on a harddrive again ...then again I will probably change my mind if there is a sale going on at Newegg AND if I need/want a new harddrive. I can't think of anything bad to say except the price. haha
