5 out of 5 eggsEarly review, all is good

Pros: Reviewing a hard drive after just three months probably doesn't make for a good assessment but, so far so good. Much quieter than anticipated but not silent. Very fast boot up and seek times. MUCH less expensive than a comparable sized SDD since I picked this up for only $50 in Feb 2015. Outstanding heat sink, always cool to the touch.
Previous experience with all my WD drives has been outstanding and see no reason why this Velociraptor will be any different.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Wish I had purchased several more at the Newegg price when this was offered. I had no clue the price would nearly triple.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: worked great days 1 through 30 maybe that's why it has a 30 day return policy.

Cons: Item had Disc Failure and refuses to run any programs on it for periods of time longer than 30 mins. I can open it and see the items but it's telling me to back up the files. I really liked it and this has happened before with opened box or refurbished items I've bought in the past I just buy replacements saying i get what i pay for. But this Velociraptor I splurged on because I thought I would have the best. It has been a real let down.

Other Thoughts: I have to buy a new one. But this is number 4 that has been a let down I might have to drop Western Digital as my Trusted Brand name.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat iops

Pros: Its decent and I got it cheap. I get about 218 megabytes per second with two of these in raid. they aren't as fast as my ssd but they work great as a steam drive. also has phenomenal iops for a hard drive.

Cons: not really anything. except it took a little configuration before it showed up as a drive on my computer.

5 out of 5 eggsPick This Up !

Pros: I have the 450 GB version of this as bulk storage currently teamed with a Samsung 840 Pro, 256 GB SSD boot drive for a gaming machine. This drive has been my goto favorite for the past three years. Its been on three Mobos paired with three SSDs and started as my boot drive before going with my first SSD. Used this as a boot drive for about 6 months before installing an OCZ Vertex 4 SSD. I'm sure benchmarks may have changed, but real world - I didn't notice any difference.

Cons: If you can't get used to the little clicks as its working, then maybe this isn't for you. I find it sort of reassuring on an otherwise silent machine.

Other Thoughts: I've been waiting a couple years for these to go on sale again.

1 out of 5 eggs2nd Dud in 1 year

Pros: Not quite sure there are any "Pros"

Cons: This one is replacing another Raptor that went bad within 1 year (actually I think it was bad from the start but I hung in with it until just recently it died). I'm not sure why since this was a straight exchange in my system. Nothing else changed. Clean Win 7 install... everything fresh. The mobo drivers are installed correctly etc etc. I cannot get better than 126/126 mb/s for the read/writes. This thing is a dog. It's going to be sent back this week.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I bought the wrong drive? This one was marked "Enterprise Storage" so maybe the read/writes aren't supposed to be that fast(?)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drives

Pros: Upgraded from my 6 seagate 7k drives in raid 0 to 4 of these 10k drives. These things are much quicker across the board, read, write, random r/w, latency, all quicker.
Software and games load in the blink of an eye. Boot time was shortened by about half.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Been rocking these for over 2 years with no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsFast But still...

Pros: Great drive for the times/cost but I don't think strictly mechanicals will be around for to much longer. Maybe 3 or 4 years.

Cons: Hybrids are way faster and coming down in price. Slow compared to hybrid drives.

Other Thoughts: Thinking of replacing mine with a hybrid and using this to archive.
