This is an inexpensive drive that performs very well.

That 5 year WD warranty is a nice bonus.

I have 2 of these in a RAID0 that perform very nicely.



Other Thoughts:

A prior reviewer ran HD Tune against a Raptor (I believe a 36Gb) and this WD drive. I was a little delirious (!?) about the posted results until I did my own HD Tune test on a couple of RAID0 setups I have, with the following results:

Raptors 2 X74Gb RAID0

Avg. Transfer Rate: 110 MB/Sec
Access Time: 8.5 ms

Caviar Black 2X500Gb RAID0

Avg. Transfer Rate: 140 MB/Sec
Access Time: 12.5 ms
Burst Rate: 138 MB/Sec
