WD VelociRaptor drives offer an unmatched combination of high performance and high reliability, perfect for workstations, high-end video and photo editing, low-end servers and performance enthusiast's systems. Comes with a 3.5-inch mounting frame for easy installation into today's high-performance systems and chassis. Ultra fast - Designed around a 10,000 RPM spin speed, these SATA 6 Gb/s drives include a 64 MB cache and deliver the ultimate performance for photo and video editing. Rock-solid reliability - With 1.4 million hours MTBF, these drives have the highest available reliability rating on a high capacity SATA drive. High capacity - State-of-the-art technology delivers a balance of high performance and high capacity perfect for data-intensive workloads that require large amounts of storage such as video editing, 3D rendering and scientific modeling. Ultra-cool operation Consumes less idle power and uses similar active power as the previous generation WD VelociRaptor, while offering higher capacity and performance. Advanced Format (AF) Technology adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities. IcePack mounting frame - The 2.5-inch hard drive is enclosed in a backplane-ready 3.5-inch mounting frame with a built-in heat sink that keeps this powerful little drive extra cool when installed in high-performance desktop chassis. NoTouch ramp load technology - The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit. Pre-emptive Wear Leveling (PWL) - Ensures reliability for applications that perform a high incidence of read/write operations at the same physical location on the disk. Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF) - Optimizes operation and performance when the drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis. Environmentally Conscious - In addition to being RoHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor also provides a halogen-free design.

I have been looking at this hard drive for at least a year and I'm glad I finally purchased it. I am using an SSD for the operating system etc and the Velociraptor is the hard drive with all my games' pictures, downloads etc. This thing is fast. I tested my old hard drive which is WD Black 7200RPM and the read speed is 70.07mb/s and the write speed is 68.42mb/s. The WD Velociraptor has a read speed of 187.5mb/s and write speed of 188.8mb/s. That is on sata 3GB (sata2) as my motherboard does not have sata 6GB (sata 3) which this drive can use. I have seen benchmark tests on sata 6GB and the speeds on the WD VelociRaptor 1 TB has the drive performing around 215 MB/s read and 205 MB/s write for sequential speeds. The VelociRaptor still comes no where close to the access times of a SSD drives but since the prices are still high on SSD drives it is a great alternative compared to the 7200RPM drives and also having the 1TB of hard drive space is a big plus. I am very pleased on how much faster games load and play and my computer is much faster all around using the WD Velociraptor.

WANTED NOTICE: Performance junkie with O/S and programs on an SSD looking for a place to put his small collection of pictures, music, and home videos. User is spoiled by near-instant load times of SSD's, so low latency and quick response time is a must. Enough space to create a C-Drive backup partition a definite plus.

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?

SUBJECTIVE PROS:
- 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.

Installs effortlessly, encased in it's own heat sync, very fast and one of the most reliable hard drives on the market. Although the price is a little steep, I found it to be $30 cheaper on Amazon. It's nice to have a blazing fast hard drive to run Win7 64...the boot time of my pc has been cut in half because of the VelociRaptor. I had a Seagate 7200 RPM 1T drive running Win7 and it took about a minute for the pc to fully boot to desktop. So, I cloned all of the data over to the Raptor and booted from it....WOW, what a huge difference in boot times! Even defragging the hard drive is cut in half. I also have a 600G VelociRaptor that is dedicated for Flight Sim X.....can't beat the speed, performance and reliability of WD VelociRaptors. I have owned a 300G Raptor in a previous pc build and it never failed after 4 years of intensive flight simulation use. I sold the previous build 1.5 years ago and that 300G Raptor is still going strong. This just shows how reliable Western Digital products are, but I know that some do fail from time to time. In my experience with Raptor drives, I have nothing but high remarks for this product.

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.

I've gone through 2 Intel brand SSDs, and I got to say, they were a real disappointment. Sure they are hella fast right out of a box, but only a few months after purchasing, they stutter randomly, locking up the entire system for hundreds of milliseconds, then maybe a year later, writes start coming back corrupted, making the drive completely useless. As far as I'm concerned, the lifetime on SSDs is a scam when you factor in the price. There's a reason they only come with a 1-year warranty. They don't expect them to last to much longer than that. There really should be a class action lawsuit against many of the SSD manufactures.

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.
