Very Cooperative

Edwin J., Newegg
22 May 2015
  • 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.
  • Cons: N/A

Fast Spinner

Michael F., Newegg

  • 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.
  • Pros: Quiet, low spin latency, reliable, reasonable price, Newegg ships then nicely protected.
  • Cons: none

Meets high expectations

James H., Newegg
9 April 2015
  • 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.

Buyers remorse ...check your warranty status

Frank K., Newegg
15 March 2015
  • Pros: My inexpensive Solid State Drive (SSD) performance so far has been outstanding.
  • Cons: If you expect to get the 5 years warranty keep your original receipt and keep your fingers crosed. I have a Velociraptor that failed and the date of manufacture is May 25, 2010 and my warranty expired in Sept 2014. Before replacing a Raptor with a Raptor check to see if they kept their promise on...

Bad boy here!

gene c., Newegg
21 February 2015
  • Summary: Some online forums will tell you to save money on the cpu, then tell you to get a SSD for boot up, and a standard HD for storage. Do the math and get one of these bad boys to do both boot up and storage, and buy that 4790k.
  • Pros: This HD is very fast! Installs easy and is a dream to use.
  • Cons: None at all.

Good value, Great Speed for HDD

Jake R., Newegg
18 February 2015
  • Pros: I originally wanted a 500gb SSD for my main hard drive, and a high speed 1TB mechanical for bulk storage, but I couldn't swing it as my build was already $200 over budget. This hd surprised me, it runs exceptionally well and is quiet and at a decent rate compared to any I've had in the past. Can'...
  • Cons: None that I can name.
