5 out of 5 eggsWarranty Rocks

Pros: Fast in raid and lots of storage, cheaper than SSD :)

One died about 3 weeks before 5 year warranty and the other 2 years before the warranty expired. But WD replaced both at no charge and no questions asked.

Very pleased with shipping and came back before I noticed they were really gone....

Now I have 2 more with 5 more years of warranty :)

Cons: One died about 3 weeks before 5 year warranty and the other 2 years before the warranty expired. But WD replaced bo

5 out of 5 eggsHot

Pros: I got this not knowing how much heat it generates. I threw it into my gaming computer and it fried within minutes, but after pointing a simple case fan at it, the temp stabilized and I never had to worry about it.

Cons: Hot...

Other Thoughts: Make sure it has some sort of cooling system, whether it is a fan or liquid cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsQuality HDD

Pros: Reliable and fast enough for most people's needs. Inexpensive (compared to SSD)

Cons: Expensive compared to other HDD. 5.9 on the windows performance scale. The cost does not out weigh speed difference.

Other Thoughts: The HDD shamefully wields the lowest of my scores according to windows' performance, all others range 7.4-7.6. It is holding my system back. I had bought it with the intention of creating a RAID0. Two of these is expensive and with SSD costs dropping, I am going to switch to one SSD and forget RAID.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

Pros: I have been using this drive for many many years now, and while it lacks in space, it makes up for it with long life and incredible speed.

Cons: INCREDIBLY loud. And at night it clicks rapidly and grinds...
Though that could just be it dying.

Other Thoughts: I typically take up a lot of hard drive space, so I use the VelociRaptor as my boot drive and as storage for my programs, and then store all my other files on a SeaGate Barracuda 1.5TB

4 out of 5 eggsGreat until it died

Pros: Faster than any standard desktop drive running at 7200rpm. Low latency, quick access times.

Cons: Died after 2 years and 4 months of daily use. Replaced under warranty, but still. I expected it to last longer.

Other Thoughts: Had 2 of these setup in RAID 0 for more speed. Not even close to SSD speeds, but much faster than 7200rpm drives.

4 out of 5 eggsLasted years

Pros: Its speed, and dependability.

Cons: Only lasted 2 years. I ran this drive for about 8 hours a day and casual desktop gaming I/O. The drive served me well until it died. It lasted 2 years and died without warning.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this drive if the price was right.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Fast writing/reading

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: My SSD died 3 days after I installed it, so I booted up this old puppy from my old PC. Works just fine, I might keep the SSD on the shelf incase this drive dies!

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong...

Pros: Fast, quiet, not hot (warm maybe)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought a pair over a year ago and put them in RAID 0 for my games drive... works wonderfully. On SC2 and LoL, I regularly load maps + resource files faster than other players. Noticeably faster. I remember they benched at around 250MB/s (2Gb/s) seq. reads - that's basically SSD speeds.
