Still running

HostileHST "HostileHST", Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Probably just jinxed myself, but drive is still going after a year. Only thing about it that bothers me is the 36gb I had to replaced with this one seemed much snappier, but all in all I am still happy that it's working. 4 Stars only cause I think it should have been quicker than an older model, but these do have denser plates, so that might account for it.

Fast, Quiet, Affordable, It Even Looks Kewl !

MadCarpenter, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: I may be jaded since I found this 150 gig hard drive 'Factory Refurbished' for a ridiculously low $35, but I love this thing! It's quiet and fast. Yes, it's not an SSD; if you try, you can hear it working in the background, and it does take a glacially slow 55 seconds for my desktop to appear from OFF (Goll !), but it's a 'Raptor, with a serviceable lifespan of what, ten years?

Noticable speed

Karl, Amazon
21 July 2012
  • Summary: I love this thing! I put it inside of an old Dell E3100 and I got such a noticeable speed boost over the stock 7200RPM (though I suspect the old drive wasn't actually spinning as fast as it should've been). Anyway, as soon as I put this in and got everything cloned over, I booted up the PC and man, what a difference in speed. Now Windows loads faster, programs load faster, everything loads faster.

Excellent HD

LARRY JACKSON, Amazon
13 July 2012
  • Summary: My sister had many problems with her PC ( HP-m7330N ) while in " end of life cycle." My solution was to install a new hard drive then install Windows 7 PRO 32bit. The results are amazing. The WD VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS is silent ( more silent than I expected ) and fast. Windows 7 loaded and installed without problems. My sister is one satisfied PC owner. I am a SSD Enthusiast but I am happy with this HD. Actually, this drive was bought in 2010 for a new PC Build.

It's All In The Name "VelociRaptor"

John Vasquez, Amazon
26 February 2012
  • Summary: I ordered 3 of these Western Digital 150 GB VelociRaptor 10,000 RPM hard drives from Amazon Warehouse Deals. They are almost brand new hard drives with minamal use. I already own one of these drives and they are great. I use these for my server because they have great performance and are no where as expensive as 15,000 RPM SAS drives. They work great perfomance wise but buyers keep in mind that even though they perform great, they have limited space.

Great HDD for OS

Major, Amazon
12 July 2011
  • Summary: I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on this HDD and it is fast. My system does not have a lot of programs booting at startup but this drive has me up and running from a power on to full active desktop in just over 24 seconds. I do only have my OS and program files on this drive. That means nothing gets saved to my desktop, everything other than the OS and program files goes to my additional HDD's (WD Black Caviar 500GB drives).

Super fast, stable drive

Brandon Tarbet "tarbetb", Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: I have been using the Western Digital Raptor line of hard drives over 10 years in various PC's I've built (I am a PC repair tech). I have had very few failures considering the number of drives I've installed and I am really impressed with this line's speed and performance. They are a noisy drive, but that rarely bothers my customers and as long as I continue to get this kind of reliability, I'll be a dedicated customer.
