A balance between the speed of an SSD and the value of a regular HDD
3 weeks ago
Summary: I use this primarily as a dedicated video game hard drive, with a separate SSD for the OS and a large regular HDD for for all my documents and media. It certainly reduces load times compared to the regular HDD that preceded it. The price per GB is certainly more than that of most hard drives, but it certainly quite less than the SSD's on the market today. If SSD prices drop lower in a couple of years this product may very well lose its value.
I was considering an SSD but I am quite pleased with the decision to go for more drive space ...

Summary: $99.99 was a fair price, I thought. I was considering an SSD but I am quite pleased with the decision to go for more drive space and a little less speed. It Increased my boot time by about 25 seconds with Win 7.
Summary: I purchased this to replace a 300 that was my boot drive. Arrive in only a few days; I cloned my boot drive using Acronis, opened up my computer, slid the old one out and inserted this one and now have double my space! Worked like a charm. Good price, great shipping; it doesn't get any better.
Summary: I like WD black hard drives. This Velociraptor 600 has been just a good. I have used it for several year now and it is still working. I have a SSD on the front end and this as a secondary. Works very well.
Summary: This disk was the main system drive in a LIQUID-cooled PC that I helped my son build. When you want data and you want it now, you go with THIS drive. For the size, speed and price... still don't think you can do better than this with a SSD!
Summary: Have wanted one of these since they came out. Fastest HD outside an SSD. What a nice difference in performance. HD related tasks cut in half. WD reliability and lightning speed. What else can you ask for?
