5 out of 5 eggsFast, efficient, and quiet. Can't beat it!

Pros: I bought two of these to upgrade from my 2 74 gig Raptors and they have been fantastic. Quieter and faster than the old ones (on hand for backups), double the capacity and less energy consumed. I run a recording studio and these are ideal. Been running them quite hard for two years not without any issues. (My older Raptors ran for over 5 years with nary a hitch.)

Cons: Price-to-storage capacity ratio is very low compared to "normal" hard drives, but the performance more than makes up for this, IMO.

Other Thoughts: Until SSD's get priced more competitively I'm sticking with Raptors.

5 out of 5 eggsOrdered REFURB, received NEW

Pros: Blistering fast 6G SATA... pity WD has cancelled RAPTORs in favor of HGST product. This sale must be the clearing of the sales channels. Drives received has NOV-2012 d/c.

Cons: No UPC on the NEW, so I can't get the rebate.

Other Thoughts: If you want a cheap fast desktop, and have a good network, this is a perfect small FAST drive. Stripe a pair for even better perf.
