Truly a great product. A satisfying buy!

Pros: I bought this hard drive back in Feb. 2013 and I'm still using it now. Has lasted my expectations. I wanted it to last 4 years but I got an extra year out of it and now going on it's 6th. I'm ready to retire it but as long as it keeps going, it's got a home in my computer. I use it almost every day, sometimes for long hours (14). Quick, does lots of work and never glitches loading. Just so reliable.

Cons: It goes no and on. I keep thinking it's slowing down. but it never stops. The start up programs have been getting larger, adding more processing and getting more complicated so it seems to account for some suspect slowing at start up. My computer is a third generation i7 so that could be another reason why it's slowing

Other Thoughts: I bought a 2nd drive a year after I got this one. In case it broke down, I wanted to have it ready to go. But like a good back up quarterback, it's sat on the sidelines getting updates every month or two. Really happy I bought these. I might just buy a larger 2 TB to go with an SSD.

Very fast drive. BUT, A VERY BIG PROBLEM. Buyer beware.

Pros: I have purchased about 7 of the VelociRaptor hard drives over the past several years. A lot were 150 to 300 gb drives. I have never had a single failure. The reason I replaced them was as the amount of my data increased I needed more storage space. I moved into SSDs as replacements. My computer has 5 hard drives in it.

Cons: I purchased this drive knowing it was a "bare drive". Previous VelociRaptor drives I bought were listed as bare drives also. However, this one arrived without the heat sink that surrounds the drive. All previous drives had the heat sink. The photo of the product clearly has the sink installed. I used this hard drive to backup my system drive. After cloning my system drive, I picked up this drive and it was extremely hot. So hot in fact that I doubt that it would last very long in day to day use. I guess it will serve the purpose of being used as a back up.

Other Thoughts: Newegg and the Western Digital VelociRaptors are awesome. However, if I had known there was no heat sink as pictured, I never would have purchased this. The drive came from a company associated with Newegg. I give Newegg and WD 5 eggs. This one however is a great disappointment. EOL Tech, the seller gets 1 egg.

It's okay

Pros: This HDD is about 2 years old now. I purchased it in 2013, and threw it into a new rig. It's sole purpose is for my Operating system. It was very fast as was advertised over the first year, and lived up to all of my expectations.

Cons: In this second year, the HDD has been getting slower and slower and there is a nice long wait period for my desktop to appear when powering on now. Granted, I download a lot, quite often, and then delete off the hard drive once things are moved to my other drives (I download a lot of mods for games that I have). But normal rewriting of files shouldn't bog the card down this much after 2 years of use, especially due to the fact that I keep good maintenance with a few disk cleanup utilities.

Other Thoughts: Nice and fast at first, but does not stay constant over time. Instead of buying this, just go ahead and buy yourself a solid state instead. You'll be doing yourself a favor in the long run.

Disappointed

Pros: we all know the pros!

Cons: After a little over a year the drive is bad. Smart errors and is not bootable. My problem is not with the drive! Drives fail I understand that and have had good luck with the velociraptor drives. It is the customer service from Western digital. The drive is under warranty but they do not have them in stock. They manufacture these drives! How can they be out of stock? Also frustrating is that they cant tell me when the drives will be in stock. I paid for advanced replacement and expedited shipping as well because I need it to restore my work computer. I even offered to purchase a bigger replacement drive if they could ship it faster (at a reduced price of course) and was told they cant do that either. On my next hard drive purchase I will be looking hard at other drive manufacturers.

limited use, at this point

Pros: Still one of the fastest mechanical storage solutions.

Cons: Still a mechanical storage solution.

Other Thoughts: Nothing got hit harder by the advent of SSD than the upper end of the HDD market. The Raptor is a terrific device, but can't be seriously considered on a price/performance basis anymore.

You're only buying this as a 1:1 replacement for a failed device. Or maybe you're contractually obligated to use a specific drive. Or your'e an HDD freak. Or you expect to do petabytes of writes to one device and don't need SDD performance.

That thing is fast!

Pros: -Furiously fast
-Quiet
-5 years warranty

Cons: -Died after 3 1/2 years (mechanical failure)

Other Thoughts: Even though it died after a few years (bad luck, I suppose), the 5 years warranty covers it no problem.
