5 out of 5 eggswd 2500hhtz

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This drive is about as fast as any ssd in a practical sense. It is also WAY more dependable than an ssd, and cheaper. I had two computers with ssd's, and ended up removing them both. These drives are "enterprise" level with a huge mtbf. Look it up for yourself.

Cons: Only problem with hdd's, is the bios. I lost 5 drives playing with raid configurations with different raid cards. They became "clickers". All were wd's (of course). Actually for light use, raid didn't help with speed of the machines.

Other Thoughts: Wish WD would address this bios problem. Years ago, you could flash hdd bios with the first dos floppy, but it doesn't work anymore. A software program or a back up bios would greatly improve an otherwise great drive... from a dependability point of view.

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Love this 10K rpm drive, it has been flawless. It is used as a baseline for SSD drives.
I was not ready for SSDs then, maybe now.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Next PC I build will have a fast SSD 256-512GB system drive and 1-4TB HDD for other data.

4 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Very good HDD so far I have 4 and plan to purchase more, despite comments on how loud this are they do make a VERY faint clicking noise when active, but so far quiet and run about 5-10+c cooler (under load) then my Seagate’s and about 5c+/- cooler then my pre-WD Hitachi HDD’s

Cons: Not at all a WD fan, in fact it took years to trust another WD HDD drive. All prior WD HDD’s failed within a year or so and the ones that have yet to fail make noises that you need ear plugs for (no joking) I don’t even use them for anything important due to they can fail at any moment.

Other Thoughts: I have been a fan of IBM/Hitachi HDD’s since 2000ish tried Seagate’s and after 2005ish Seagate’s have been horrible in reliability, my old IDE/SATA IBM/Hitachi’s still work awesome ( I am very abusive to HDD’s), but need faster HDDs, so I tried one of these 250gig HDD’s and have yet to look back.
I run 1 as my C: drive for my file server and 3 in RAID 0 in my game rig as my D: (game drive) I placed my largest game (Aion 40gig) on my Neutron 256gig SSD (very fast, solid, steady SSD, R/W 500ish/430ish) and my RAID 0 loads just as fast. Game load time (RAID 40sec/ SSD 45sec average.)
WD velociraptor 250gig x3 RAID 0 r/w @ 100mb test, R/W = 500+/400+ Seq on crystalmark (SATA2)
WD velociraptor 250gig x3 RAID 0 r/w @ 100mb test SMOKES the SSD, R/W = 1k+/500+ Seq on crystalmark (SATA3)
The RAID is in my Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced (vey open, quite, vented tower) I can hardy hear these 3 drives unless under heavy load which is barely audible

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Super fast when in RAID 0. I have a SSD boot drive and use 2 of these for installing programs and games. They have been running about 8-14hrs a day sense 10/16/2012 without issues using the on board controller on my ASRock Z77 Extreme4 MB.

Cons: storage space. this is my own fault so i didnt knock off an egg. I went from having 2x 1T HD black in raid 0 to 2 of these in raid 0... going from ~2T storage to ~500GB feels... cramped.. its to the point where im installing games on my backup drive... I require more storage..

Other Thoughts: ~2 Years of High school comptia training
~4 years of self-taught hardware nerdism (cold cathodes to custom cooling)
~1.5 years of Restaurant IT work

3 out of 5 eggsWD Raptor Fast

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast read and write speeds, decent capacity for the price. Have them in a raid 0 configuration. After a few months computer starting to show the Blue screen after diagnosing every component finally got to the drives.

Cons: U-N-R-E-L-I-A-B-L-E this is the 2nd set of Raptors that I go through with minimum computer use. May be is this particular model, but that is unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: Will try SSD now may be I have better luck !!!

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Performance, Performance and...Yes, Performance.

Cons: Hmmm...Have to back to you when I can find one.

Other Thoughts: Fastest HDD's money can buy with WD dependability. I have a WD Black 2TB in my PC and this thing smokes it. Using the Raptor in my home server build for the OS with 4 WD Red 2TB HDD's in RAID.
