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!

  • 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

  • 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.

fast and expensive, like a ferrari

  • Summary: i installed a pair of these in a raid set, they come close to loading speed of the ssd's i have tested, without the ssd's data loss problems, my only gripe is the huge heatsink, you cannot remove it to use these in a laptop without voiding the warranty..

Gets the job done

  • Summary: May be a little expensive, but needed for C-drive for your operating system, the hard drive is the slowest piece of hardware. So 10,000 rpm is the only way to go.

Another Strong Showing from WD

Aredhel, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: This is the second VelociRaptor I have purchased. The first being the previous generation's 600GB model. I absolutely love these things as an alternative to both 7200 RPM drives and SSDs. I needed a dedicated drive for my Steam games and was contemplating going with a 900GB SSD or two 500GB SSDs in a RAID. Then I managed to catch this drive on sale for around $200.00. At that price, and with WD's awesome 5-year warranty, I couldn't pass it up.
