CONS: People concerned with the noise level of their PC's should probably look elsewhere. This is a performance drive though. I always chuckle when noise comes up as a con in reviews of high-performance products. Don't you people have 4,000 RPM fans cooling your rads? What about the noise-cancelling headphones that you surely own? Have you not set your video card's fan profile way higher than it needs to be to keep things cool in your case?
- Price: Half(ish) the cost of a similarly sized SSD.
- Hot: IMO, the best looking internal hard drive on the planet.
- Noise: When I hear the drive as I load a video or a group of pictures, I imagine those platters spinning at almost twice the speed of lesser drives and I smile.
STATS: M/B per second from CrystalDiskMark. Drive at 16% capacity.
- Sequential Read | Write: 192 | 190
- 512K Read | Write: 77 | 134
- 4K Read | Write: 1.0 | 3.7
- 4KQD32 Read | Write: 3.5 | 4.0
FINALLY: A great warranty secures the fifth star and erases doubts about the reliability of the product.
STATS UPDATE 2013.01.29 (NOW WITH RAID 0 TIMES 3!): I took advantage of the amazing prices on this drive last Black Friday and got a couple more for the fun of it. It's complete and utter overkill for my intended application. Here are M/B per second numbers from CrystalDiskMark. This is right after I created the array, so it's at 0% capacity.Read more ›
Amazon did a pretty good job on the packaging of the product, too. Furthermore, the delivery arrived on schedule. I have found NO issues at all with this product.
Now about the VelociRaptor drives. I first purchased these drives way back in 2004 when they were only 36GB I bought two and put them in raid 0 and I was very pleased with the performance, very similar to SSD drives of today. I kept them running for almost 5 years before one of the drives died due to... a broken SATA port, around the same time I found a few corrupt sectors but I jimmy-rigged the port and it worked fine for another 6 months or so before I bought my first POS Intel overpriced junk "enterprise" SSD. (see above) Well I'm done with SSDs for the time being. Let someone else beta test these shoddy manufactured and cheaply designed box of chips. Two of these babies in RAID 0, you will see similar performance ideal for a majority of computing workloads at home, with superior linear writes/reads compared to SSD and way better lifetime and price per gigabyte.
