This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Super fast hard drive. Boots to windows in about 10-15 seconds. Amazing quality, exactly what i expected. 5 YEAR WARRANTY

Cons: A little pricy, but worth it. Thought my windows index would have changed. Stayed at 5.9 jus tlike my last 7200 RPM HDD.

5 out of 5 eggsBad boy here!

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This HD is very fast! Installs easy and is a dream to use.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: Some online forums will tell you to save money on the cpu, then tell you to get a SSD for boot up, and a standard HD for storage. Do the math and get one of these bad boys to do both boot up and storage, and buy that 4790k.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value, Great Speed for HDD

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I originally wanted a 500gb SSD for my main hard drive, and a high speed 1TB mechanical for bulk storage, but I couldn't swing it as my build was already $200 over budget. This hd surprised me, it runs exceptionally well and is quiet and at a decent rate compared to any I've had in the past. Can't go wrong at the price point. I may migrate windows over to a ssd yet, but so far I'm not in a hurry. As long as you don't get a dud and you aren't expecting ssd approachable read/write speeds, this will be a great mechanical hd for you.

Cons: None that I can name.

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast. Price is worth the speed for me. This review is for those of you who are wondering whether you need an SSD for high end gaming. Sorry to those who disagree but you just don't need an SSD. This will do it.

Cons: N/A

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: ........

Cons: Ordered Three with each and every one being DOA, What an Alarming low Quality product. Never have I had any part for anything I order be DOA.(Dead on Arrival). I am absolutely disgusted. Now I have to go through the long return/refund process and Hope I can get my the product I ordered or my money back.

5 out of 5 eggsRAID 0

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It's fast and it's quiet. This thing is nothing short of amazing. It loads everything blazing fast. I purchased 2 of them and have them running in Raid 0. I use an Corsair Force LS SSD for my OS.

Cons: None/Nil

Other Thoughts: For a mechanical drive this is about as fast as it gets right now. I am very pleased with it.. I hope they continue to improve these mechanical hard drives, and I will certainly purchase Western Digital WD VelociRaptor in the future if they do.
