VelociRaptor Devour other Hard Drives

Wade, Amazon
21 February 2015
  • Summary: Bought two and installed them in RAID 0 configuration to replace a single 7200 rpm hard drive. Hard drive access times and program load times appear to be about half of the old drive. They are blazing fast for hard drives and very quiet unlike some reviews I had read.

Best of the SATA spindle-disks.

  • Summary: Using these paired up in Lenovo TS-140 server for operating system drives. I've used these and their older revisions since the first 10K drives came to market. I've seen a few fail over the years, but, those were the 1st and 2nd gen. I know this is at least the 3rd generation, if not further along.

Fast but can be noisy

Ben T., Amazon
3 January 2015
  • Summary: I upgraded a 7 year old WD Caviar Blue 160 GB running Vista that was starting to show its age with the 250 GB Velociraptor and loaded Windows 7 onto it. What a massive difference in performance, especially at startup. Boot time went from ~4 minutes down to about 90 seconds.

5/5 will buy another.

Matthew Christopher Alexander, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: I haven't done any official tests but it seemed to be visibly faster than my solid state drive that I replaced with this. The warranty alone makes this beauty worth it and I recommend it to all gaming and media enthusiasts.
