5 out of 5 eggsFast and reliable.

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: Lasted for 3 years. Doesn't look like much but it was non-stop use in bad conditions (temperature, dust).
Gave ample warning for about 1 week before dying. Gave me enough time to order a new HDD, make sure all my data is backed up and make a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive. Once it died I was back in business in a few short hours.
Compare that to the two SSDs I had installed on other machines at home, that died suddenly and catastrophically, leaving me somewhat unprepared and very frustrated.
The perceived performance when compared to cheap SSDs on similar i7 machines, was more than honorable.

Cons: Lasted for 3 years only. I was hoping for more but I can't really complain.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this again perhaps, on the other hand one year from now I may decide to buy one of the high end PCI Experess internal SSDs if people keep being happy about them.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

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: -10k RPM, what can you say?
-Fast!
-Still working after more than 3 years.

Cons: -It's not an SSD
-It's hecka not as fast as an SSD (probably 1/4th the speed)

Other Thoughts: -I got this puppy when it was on sale for $79.99. It's over $200 now. Are you kidding????????? SSD prices have gotten much lower than this!
-Just get an SSD. If you're buying at this price, there's something really wrong with you.
-Western Digital has lagged behind with SSD technology, and their hard drives are getting more expensive and has hecka lots of horrible reviews. I fear they were going down the drain. I used to buy WD drives exclusively, but have found the Toshiba 3TB (3 year warranty) to be very reliable. Too bad Toshiba made a new model with only 1 year warranty. Talk about taking care of your customers. Oh how the mighty (WD) hath fallen! WD recently agreed to purchase SanDisk in Oct, 2015. Hopefully Western Digital doesn't mess up SanDisk, which has some super fast EXTREME USB 3.0 sticks after Corsair's GTX series, has awesome super fast 95MB/s+ SDCards, and decent SSDs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, great, great drive!!!

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: Oh my gosh, I dunno what to say, other than this drive is seriously one of the best non Solid State drives I have ever owned.

Western Digital makes seriously superior drives, and I implore you to buy from them in the future.

Cons: None, great drive WD!

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 stays cool. Decent Space.

Cons: Not as fast as it states, 10k rpm not true, at the fastest it maxes at 7200, very noisy, second one within a years time i had to replace. Kinda expensive for what it is..

Other Thoughts: Honestly I would prefer a Hybrid or a SSD drive over this, after i bought a hybrid, i noticed a HUGE diff. in many applications, specs, speeds, etc as well. You can pretty much have the best of both worlds with one.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Cooperative

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: Very cooperative staff. I made a mistake, ordered the wrong device, and had to decline it to send it back to California for a refund. They were very responsive through email and worked with me. They even waived the restocking fee and shipping cost. Will definitely use them again.

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsMeets high expectations

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, silent and cool. This SATA III drive is running at 5C-7C cooler than my older SATA II drives. I get a good increase in performance, too. Loading times are MUCH improved in SC Arena Commander, which is why I wanted this drive.

Cons: First drive was DOA, but newegg RMA procedure was easy and fast. I have had excellent experience with WD drives over the last decade, so I am convinced that one DOA is a fluke, rather than pattern.

Other Thoughts: Looking at the reviews, I knew this was a good drive, so I opted for a replacement instead of a refund. I am NOT disappointed! I have another build planned in the near future, so I will probably grab a couple more of these.
