Best bang for your buck

tbuddy,, TigerDirect.com
19 February 2014
  • Summary: Very happy with this purchase. boots up windows in 15 sec. 5 yr warranty is impressive as well. I here that these are not as fast as a solid state drive but I didn't pay $400 for it either. Its the best bank for your buck out there.

User Review

csiguy, NCIX.com

  • Summary: I used to use SSDs as the boot device in most of my workstations. After 4+ years of SSDs with a 75% re-install/failure rate, I have switched almost all of my systems to Velociraptors. Velociraptors are a much better $/GB value than SSD and almost as good for performance (synthetic benchmarks are meaningless since no one runs Windows with file caching disabled).
  • Pros: Fast., Quiet., One of the best Performance $/GB.
  • Cons: None

Not sure if SSD or HDD...

Brandon D., Newegg
15 April 2013
  • Pros: This drive is FAST! Works perfectly for running my OS. No complaints on performance that's for sure!
  • Cons: It does have its "louder" tick moments while loading things. But not worth negating an egg for this as I love the performance of this HDD!

Great ROI Harddrive

joseph h., Newegg
10 March 2013
  • Pros: Obviously faster than a 7200 rpm drive. Not as expensive as a ssd. (.30 a gig as opposed to 1.00) Making it much easier to feel like your getting your money's worth.
  • Cons: Loud, not nearly as fast as a ssd.

WD Service +++

Peter P., Newegg
18 December 2012
  • Pros: Following up again, I decided to rma the drive with the broken power connector. To my surprise I got quick answers to email, and a phone call at a promised appointment. Outstanding service on a sub $100 product. Gave em my credit card and they are shipping an advance rma for me.-Prepaid!
  • Cons: shouldn't have broken in the first place. Now I have to swap and burn in a new boot drive. I notice there is a 600gb version of this drive..but it has half the cache.
