Fast and cheap. This is my first experience with raptors. I saw it on sale for $59 and couldn't pass it up. The performance exceeded my expectations.


Loud compared to everything else in my relatively quiet build. Wish I would have gotten two to RAID, but will definitely add a second in the future.

Other Thoughts:

Atto sequential benchmark: 183 MBps write, 192MBps read.

My plan for this drive is to install a few games I play and run my virtual machines from it. I can't afford several hundred gigs of SSD storage for this purpose, but want better performance than I get from the 7200rpm drives where I store music and video.
