4 out of 5 eggsFast but Noisy

Pros: Very Fast Drives! Purchased 3 and setup in RAID5 and they work flawlessly!

Cons: I don't know why, but they are really noisy drives. I hope that's just the way they are and I didn't end up with a bad batch.

Other Thoughts: Great drive for any application where you won't be sitting right next to where the drive is. FYI: You only receive the BARE 2.5" drive.

5 out of 5 eggsWarning - 2.5 inch bare drive without IcePak

Pros: VelociRaptor is the leading desktop/enterprise class drive; amazing performance before you get into SSD.

Cons: Cost? It's still worth it.

Other Thoughts: WARNING - NewEgg's picture is wrong on this item; it is actually a 2.5 inch bare drive, without the IcePak heatsink.
