1 out of 5 eggsAwful Peice of Equipment

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Came broken did not work. Physically fine. Did not work upon arrival and created an RMa for a return. One week later I receive word that I will not be receiving my refund because the bezzle was broken and they considered that physical damage. That's just horse **** not a single thing was wrong with this piece. They instructed me I could get a new hard drive from the manufacturer but I bought a new hard drive a week ago from BB because I needed one to get my OS running and my computer too. I have no use for it and now a useless broken $240 piece of equipment. Stay away from this piece and be careful buying anything from newegg they'll take your hard earned money then gut you when **** hits the fan

Other Thoughts: Newegg is not reliable to its customers tread carefully in this dangerous waters.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive from WD

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Have always been a proponent of WD drives for my builds. Have never had one arrive DOA. VelociRaptors are my drive of choice for the OS & Applications. Data & backups go onto slower speed WD HDDs. 1TB might be a little overkill, but, this drive seemed to have the best price point at the time of ordering.

Cons: It's not free

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Cons: Not SSD speed, but much better than 7200RPM

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The hard drive, when it worked, was fast.

Cons: Hard drive crashed within 6 months of purchase. I do not consider this hard drive to be a worthy investment as less expensive hard drives have last me longer. I had always heard good things about Western Digital but I will be going with another brand from now on.

2 out of 5 eggsNot so sure about this drive

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Big size drive, somewhat fast

Cons: Lots of noise! Have had nothing but problems, check-disc runs every time I boot up sometimes more than once. It crashed completely yesterday.
In the repair shop and I'm waiting for a report of the problem. May have to return the drive?

Other Thoughts: If I have to return the drive I'll upgrade to SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, RE: Sector sizes

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: FAST, even at the outer edge of the disk, excellent seek times due to the tiny platters and high RPMs

Cons: availability issues recently

Other Thoughts: To work around the SQL Server sector size issue you could create a .vhd file with 512b sector size, mount it, and put your db files on this mounted 512b 'virtual disk'

Check out the syntax for the 'New-VHD' powershell cmdlet, I think you might need to install Hyper-V to get this tool though, not sure...but I know it works

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Nice drive for day to day use, a good alternative to ssd.
although questionably.

Cons: Sector sizes are not compatible with MS SQLServer

Other Thoughts: I had to stick to my 300gb velociraotpr and use this 1Tb as additional storage that I did not need.

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Excellent Drive! I have mostly SSD's in all of my computers. I was impressed with the SSD like performance. I copied a huge file, almost a terabyte in as little as 15-20 seconds.

Cons: Non except for the Price jump. I am glad I bought it when I did. I only paid $184 with shipping. That was in the first week of July. What happened???
