Summary: Awesome drives. Nice and fast. Replaced 2 150 Gig Raptors that were about 3 years old (RAID 0). Just needed more storage. SSD is too expensive for what you get yet, so these are a great 'cheap' 2nd place in speeds.
Summary: This is a fast, low noise hard drive. I've had no problems. The drive has its own heat fins to keep it cool as you can see in the photo. Solid, well built. Some people like a certain brand of hard drive. I've always had good luck with Wstern Digital.
Summary: Selected this HD for my new workstation build due to SATA 6Gb and 10000rpm specs. I usually use SCSI drives, but thought that SATA 6Gb would be able to provide kick butt performance. Installed this HD along with i7-2600s, 8GB DDR3 memory on a ASUS P8P67 Deluxe mobo (which has SATA 6Gb ports).
Summary: Great for my mass storage drive. I am using a corsair force series gt SSD for drive C. But I needed something bigger for video etc and my 120GB drive was not enough and anything bigger costs a small fortune. Still if you cannot afford an SSD, this is the one to go to as the 10,000 rpm with 32mb cache will help out quite a bit. And it is quite. I have 5 fans in my system and the only noise I can hear is the fan from my UPS.
