Summary: -I got this puppy when it was on sale for $79.99. It's over $200 now. Are you kidding????????? SSD prices have gotten much lower than this! -Just get an SSD. If you're buying at this price, there's something really wrong with you.
Pros: -10k RPM, what can you say? -Fast! -Still working after more than 3 years.
Cons: -It's not an SSD -It's hecka not as fast as an SSD (probably 1/4th the speed)
Pros: Oh my gosh, I dunno what to say, other than this drive is seriously one of the best non Solid State drives I have ever owned. Western Digital makes seriously superior drives, and I implore you to buy from them in the future.
Summary: Honestly I would prefer a Hybrid or a SSD drive over this, after i bought a hybrid, i noticed a HUGE diff. in many applications, specs, speeds, etc as well. You can pretty much have the best of both worlds with one.
Pros: It stays cool. Decent Space.
Cons: Not as fast as it states, 10k rpm not true, at the fastest it maxes at 7200, very noisy, second one within a years time i had to replace. Kinda expensive for what it is..
Pros: Very cooperative staff. I made a mistake, ordered the wrong device, and had to decline it to send it back to California for a refund. They were very responsive through email and worked with me. They even waived the restocking fee and shipping cost. Will definitely use them again.
Summary: support was good sent me a new drive as soon as I sent new one in. why complain. my drive took forever to get too them lots of winter storms held drive up. but had new drive in 3 days after they received it. my new drive is fine. I have recently went to only wd drives.
Pros: love this drive fast quick easy to install. first time had 3 operatings systems on drive.
Cons: unfortunately my drive died after 2 years. started acting slow and giving errors on boot. my bios even lost it a few times.
Summary: This is my second VelociRaptor, Drive, my first one is still running and has been for almost five years. I used it as my primary boot drive with a SSD as the second drive due to prices of SSDs back then. It performed great and gave me fast boot and application performance.
Summary: Looking at the reviews, I knew this was a good drive, so I opted for a replacement instead of a refund. I am NOT disappointed! I have another build planned in the near future, so I will probably grab a couple more of these.
Pros: FAST, silent and cool. This SATA III drive is running at 5C-7C cooler than my older SATA II drives. I get a good increase in performance, too. Loading times are MUCH improved in SC Arena Commander, which is why I wanted this drive.
Cons: First drive was DOA, but newegg RMA procedure was easy and fast. I have had excellent experience with WD drives over the last decade, so I am convinced that one DOA is a fluke, rather than pattern.
