WD VelociRaptor 300GB SATA HDD WD3000HLFS
20 January 2009
Conclusion: Not every product we test here at Benchmark Reviews receives a warm conclusion, complete with happy ending and high recommendations. Fortunately, the WD VelociRaptor has just enough perk still going for it to benefit gamers and enthusiasts. Price and capacity are the two biggest reasons to choose a VelociRaptor over any of the current-generation SSD products, with performance becoming somewhat less comparable with each new generation of Solid State Drive products.
Pros: Fastest desktop hard drive available, 130 MBps read and write performance in ATTO Disk Benchmark, 5-Year product warranty with advance exchange available, Impressive I/O performance keeps up with some SSDs, Excellent price to performance ratio, IcePack tray helps to manage operating temperatures
Cons: Expensive enthusiast HDD product, Soon to be replaced with SSD technology, IcePack tray removal voids warranty
