Died after 3 years of use

Jess W., Newegg
18 July 2014
  • Pros: Great when it works. Perfect for RAIDing on a file server.
  • Cons: Seagate always seems to outlast Western Digital in Hard Drive life. Like other WD drives, this one did not last as long as it could have.

Nice Drive But Pricey

Jason D., Newegg
20 March 2013
  • Summary: Windows experience only rated this drive at a 4.2 while everything else in my computer was in the 7 range. I was very disappointed in this drive for this reason. If your looking for speed just buy an SSD. I did and it was the best thing I ever did.
  • Pros: Its faster than a 7200RPM drive
  • Cons: For its price its just not fast enough.

Yeah, it's LOUD

David G., Newegg
8 February 2013
  • Summary: Though not one normally inclined to review Newegg products (it would be a full time job to review even half of what I've bought for myself and others over the years), this drive has one flaw that people simply must be warned about.
  • Pros: 600 GB capacity
  • Cons: Loud Not much of a discernible difference in speed between 10,000 and 7,200 Loud A hair thicker than a normal hard drive making it a tighter squeeze into a 3.5" bay Did I mention it's really loud?

Not the best choice

Abbas T., Newegg
18 November 2012
  • Summary: I really regret buying this Veloci when I could buy my 2nd WD black for less when Newegg had a sale on Veloci. If I could return it after I used it and get my whole money back, I would do. I used it for Video editing and noticed that my WD Black edition works better with that editing softer too.
  • Pros: So far works quietly. I should say it is well built Hard Drive as expected from WD. It is different form the first generation of VelociRaptor drives.
  • Cons: When we talk about VelociRaptor Drive with 10K RPM, we expect it to be real fast. Of course not as fast of SSD or Hybrid SSD but at least faster than a drive with 7200 RPM. However, it is not that fast. Comparing to a WD Black 1TB drive with SATA 3 (6Gbps), the Veloci is not faster at all. Both g...

It is not as fast as I expected

Han D., Newegg
17 November 2012
  • Summary: I tried to install and boot Windows 8, Windows 7, Linux and Mac Osx 10.5.8 I noticed that it is not really faster than my old WD hard drive 7200 rpm. For people who want to improve the system performance, it's better to go with SSD hard drive.
  • Pros: - Little gain in speed compared to the 7200 rpm hard drive - 10K rpm - Price ($109) - Fast shipping
  • Cons: A bit noisy

It lasted a month

nick c., Newegg
25 April 2012
  • Summary: I guess I'll see how the RMA process. I have several other WD drives that have never had an issue. Hopefully this is an isolated problem.
  • Pros: Works as advertised, it's a fast drive with a good amount of space.
  • Cons: Well, it lasted a little over a month. Now it mounts but has trouble reading. CHKDSK passes but I can't even format it. The western digital utiltiy fails on the first test so it's RMA time.

  • Excerpt: Купил недавно две такие штуковины в raid 0 (тоже долго выбирал и думал, отзывов начитался))) и был НЕПРИЯТНО удивлён: производительность 2-х HLLX600 НИЖЕ производительности стоящих ранее 4-х барракуд 7200.12 по 500GB! Там мах скорость чтения была 240! и Индекс 6,9!
  • Pros: Отличное качество исполнения, гарантия 5 лет, ОТСУТСТВИЕ какого-либо значимого шума и треска (всё же появился позднее треск:/), нормальная рабочая температура, отсутствие перегрева.....НО!
  • Cons: Скорость чтения (raid 0 из двух таких) 172 МВ/с максимально, в среднем 110 МВ/с, минимально 35,9 МВ/с, доступ 8 мс!!! Индекс производительности всего 6,3!!!
