I use 2 of these in Raid 0 with a fast smaller SDD as Intel Cache and IMO its overall faster in "REAL LIFE USAGE" then simply running the SDD as SSD's are not fast for all types of files types/sizes and compresses vs uncompressed files.

Mech HDD's still have a faster Sequential write speed for certain file sizes.

faster than a 7,200 SATA drive, which is what you would expect. My only gripe is that it can be a little noisey. But overall, I would say good value for money and I certainly would recommend it.

Faster than my 5yr old 150Gb Velociraptor but much noisier, hence only 4 stars. If you don't mind the extra noise, it's a great drive.

I never thought I'd own a Raptor, I'm a bit wary of SSD so I went for WD raptor, fast, good capacity 500 gig what more can I say apart from I'm stunned

With the price of SSD's coming down don't bother with this Drive. Perhaps I am unlucky but my Velociraptor was very noisy, more so than a five year old hard drive I own. For £100 you could do better!

Was told these drives are fast, but loud. Can hardly hear the thing in my case and it is fast. On par I think with my ssd. Going to save and buy a one ter one.
