5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No problems after running for 6 years.

Cons: Adds more noise, vibration, and heat.
Being a bit faster but smaller than a "regular" hard drive, this was the precursor to the SSD. Nowadays, just get an SSD instead and enjoy the quiet.

1 out of 5 eggsTotally unreliable

Pros: Fast while working

Cons: I bought two of these from newegg and they both failed after about a years service both were replaced by western digital under warranty and now one of the replacements has failed. All failed dramatically losing all data and of course between backups so some data totally lost in all instances. I will never use these drives again. Even the working one will be removed. Also I'd recommend mirroring.

Other Thoughts: Even the working one will be removed. Also I'd recommend mirroring, at least that is what I'll be doing in the future.

Don't buy these three out of four failed. I have other drives that have been running for over twenty years and still going.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Has never lost my data or corrupted my data. It has never given me one problem. Excellent HDD!

5 out of 5 eggs5yrs old Still Strong!!

Pros: Um....5yrs old and still going like it was when new. I love these drives. Yes you can hear it churn, but honestly, it doesnt bother me. This whole rig is so quiet - it makes any noise seem noticable.

Cons: None - Cant say ive had many drives last this long.

Other Thoughts: Raptors are the best drives you can buy of course except SSD's. But until they become reasonable, these things are just about as fast...and much cheaper! Also, Ive had much better luck with hard drives lasting longer when I put a cooling fan on them. Works for me! This drive has had a fan on it its entire life. All drives I have installed in computers over the years seem to have much longer lifespan with a cooling fan.

3 out of 5 eggsBad spots appearing on disk

Pros: Fast.

Cons: Just got my PC back from the local PC store and their testing said the Raptor has bad spots and is slowing dieing.
Bummer! Bought in eary 2008. I'm happy that WD has a five year warranty on it and stands behind their work.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat While it Lasted

Pros: Great Drive, my Dual Core, Dual Processor Computer was faster than my Quad Core computer with this thing running it, perhaps type of RAM compatibility could have been the issue there. However, praise to its quickness.

Cons: Not worth the quickness if it is going to die after, oh, dont' know, but say its been 3 to 4 years.

Pros: Fast, relatively quiet

Cons: I have purchased 2 of these drives from Newegg. Both failed within less than 3 years. Neither gave any hint or warning of pending failure.
