This Hard Drive really works!

Summary: I run video games on my computer and wanted a little more speed. This hard drive delivers. I had installed Windows 7 at the same time and fps increase dramatically. I am using it as the C drive and it makes everything on the computer work faster. Product delivered as described and I am very satisfied with the service and product.
Summary: I have 2 of these configured RAID-1 in a small 2008R2 Hyper-V server, which runs a couple virtual workstations and an SBS2003 instance. They run very cool for 10k drives, which is important as the server is in a wall-mount rack in my laundry closet. Currently using a Dell Optiplex 990 chassis - one drive has active (low-speed) fan cooling in the stock drive bay, and it is not warm at all.
Summary: As stated on the package; "The fastest SATA drive in the universe" (as of 9/2011) SATA 6Gb/s, 32MB cache, 10,000 rpm. Comes with a 5 year warranty. This is the "Retail Kit" (translation; we don't have a clue what each individual install might entail, but we do know, might be screws and a cable) which included a beautiful four color box, the HDD unit draped in a proper plastic bag, 4 screws, and one cable; should you require anything else for your installation, those...
Summary: Western Digital Velociraptor 600 GB SATA III 10000 RPM 32 MB Cache Bulk/OEM 3.5 Inch Desktop Hard Drive - WD6000HLHX This drive, purchased from Amazon, really speeded up my computer. I am running an ASRock 880G Pro 3 motherboard (also from Amazon) with an AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition processor (overclocked and stable 4.0 Ghz on Air) so I have A FAST rig. I have a lot of fun ordering computer parts off the net and assembling them for better performance.
Summary: I have a SSD for my boot drive but went with this for additional space. The pair are fantastic. I installed windows and all startup programs like virus scanner etc. onto the SSD but all programs like games and cad software to the velociraptor. Programs open really fast.. as fast as a SSD well no of course not, but for the $220 i paid this was a great value for the space. i was able to get a 120gb SSD with a WI of 7.9 for $130, and this drive.
Summary: Second VelociRaptor drive I've owned. And it works just as well as the first, which is still going strong after 2 years. Fast load times during gaming and regular file browsing. There is the occasional lag as it spins up, but nothing unusual for a disk drive.
