I bought this to try an idea I had, running a virtual machine from an external esata drive. My lenovo has a 128gb SSD drive, too small for a decent virtual setup, so I needed something external that was powerful and fast. I have been using WD Raptors in an old server for years with excellent results. So when I saw the Velociraptor and the great price on amazon I bought it to see. A great call, the performance is excellent, and it runs my VMs as if they were internal drives. Highly recommend this drive for whatever your needs are, has excellent speed and is very quiet.

I spent 10 years working as a System Engineer for a storage vendor. We sold performance, features and reliability.

Background issues
Before my purchase, I had a Windows 7 system that took 6min 8secs to boot. And this is with a defragmented disk drive. My system is configured with 6GB of memory, a Maxtor 320GB 7200 rpm hard disk and an Intel i7 CPU. I had two major problems with this system - the aforementioned start-up time and an annoyingly slow application start-up. The fact that when waking up from sleep mode the system would still need to be re-booted due to OS problems meant I did frequent boots. I was sure after reviewing performance reports that I needed faster storage.

In the past, this system was configured with a 120GB OCZ Vertex SSD (from 6/09 1/10) but it was unreliable and not earth shattering in GB capacity. However, it booted in little less than two minutes. The manufacturer said I should re-install Windows 7 after I experienced intolerable SSD driver issues. This was an effort I could not afford. Also, I didn't trust the manufacturer's solution. So the SSD now sits in my desk drawer.

Considered
SSD and VelociRaptor. Obviously, SSDs are expensive. Even the recently announced crop of SSDs are still pricey. According to the online reviewers, they have reliability issues - and that includes Intel's. SSD performance is probably not an issue for most applications I use. However, I do movie editing and THIS may be a problem for SSDs - large sequential reads and writes. For the time I used my 120GB SSD, HD 1080p movies were choppy. In fact,the Maxtor hard disk also exhibited choppy movie editing.

Solution
The VelociRaptor is terrific. It exceeded my expectations.

i just finished building my first computer (self taught)and i decided to add another hard drive so i got this one. this hard drive is fast and the main reason i got this drive is for video games which will allow the games to load faster. i only ran into one problem with this product (this is most likely because im still a noob). after i installed the cables and after my computer automatically installed a driver for the hard drive, i was unable to use/see the hard drive when i click on "my computer". after some research through the web this is what i found that helped me.

Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press R to bring up the Run window.
Type compmgmt.msc and click OK.
In the Computer Management window, click on Disk Management.
Look for the new drive in the right hand pane (it should be listed below your C: drive).
Right click anywhere on the disk and choose New Simple Volume.
Click Next.
Keep the default size setting, which will use the whole disk, and click Next.
Choose to Format the drive with the NTFS file system and use a drive letter.
Finish the wizard and allow the format to complete.

I replaced the 1TB boot-drive in my Windows 7 computer with this 600GB gem. My browser was very slow to display pages due to all the plug-ins and extensions I use. Now they literally pop up. I am also very pleased with the increase in speed with which my applications start up. It now takes 18 seconds from "Starting Windows" to the password page. It used to take around 30. Timing after the password page is rather imprecise but I get a completed desk top in about a minute from "Starting Windows" and I have years of junk on the computer.

This hard drive replacement has had a greater effect on speed than any other modifications I have made, including stepping up to a new motherboard with an i7- 2600k chip.

(It should go without saying that these results may only be obtained with a SATA III capable system board.)

The installation is a breeze if your new drive is as big or bigger than your old drive. I had to learn (the hard way) that Windows will not recover a saved drive-image from the backup drive if the new boot-drive is smaller than the old boot-drive. It doesn't matter if the used space on the old drive is smaller than the capacity of the new drive. It is a matter of the drive volume.

In order to make it work, these are the steps to take.

1. Shrink the volume of your old boot-drive (see below).
2. Now save a new image of the drive to your backup drive.
3. Create a system recovery disc. Don't skip this. The recovery disc seems to know things your system disc does not.
4. Remove the old boot drive and install the new one.
5. Boot to the recovery disc and recover the image.
6. Enjoy the results.

Shrinking the volume of a disk is one of the easiest and more user-friendly things Windows does.
