WD VelociRaptor

Workstation Hard Drives

WD VelociRaptor drives offer an unmatched combination of high performance and high reliability, perfect for workstations, high-end video and photo editing, low-end servers and performance enthusiasts’ systems. It boasts a fast 10,000 RPM spinning speed for fast data access, and operates over SATA III 6 Gbps host interface guaranteeing high throughput. The 2.5" form factor is ideal for small workstation, high-density storage system, and more.

Ultra fast

Designed around a 10,000 RPM spin speed, these SATA 6 Gb/s drives include a 64 MB cache and deliver the ultimate performance for photo and video editing.

Rock-solid reliability

With 1.4 million hours MTBF, these drives have the highest available reliability rating on a high capacity SATA drive.

High capacity

State-of-the-art technology delivers a balance of high performance and high capacity perfect for data-intensive workloads that require large amounts of storage such as video editing, 3D rendering and scientific modeling.

Low-power operation

Consumes less active and idle power than the previous generation WD VelociRaptor, while offering 66% more capacity and higher performance.

Advanced Format (AF)

Technology adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities.

2.5-inch form factor

For workstations and PCs that support smaller form factor hard drives, such as all-in-one workstation PCs and high-density video storage systems, the WD VelociRaptor is available without its signature IcePack mounting frame.*

* Take care to ensure proper thermal management of drives to maintain case temperatures at or below the drive’s specification.

Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF)

Optimizes operation and performance when the drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis.

NoTouch ramp load technology

The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Environmentally conscious

In addition to being ROHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor is also a halogen free design.

Pre-emptive Wear Leveling (PWL)

Ensures reliability for applications that perform a high incidence of read/write operations at the same physical location on the disk.

WD 1tb raptor 7/7/2020 7:42:34 AM

Pros: Timely plannedemic shipping not withstanding from other than the egg. Waited a long time for this 'special'. This makes about #14 WD Raptor purchased. Except for an ssd there is probably no better on the market....still using a variety of 75-500gb WDs purchased over the past 20 years. Only two have ever failed.

Read many reviews about how it could be used/refurbed. Well it may be 4/15 manufacture but arrived in OEM packing (ie plastic end caps, factory seal static bag). Looks puuurtee new to me.

Cons: There are no cons - after all it's Western Digital.

Overall Review: as above

Apex predator 7/1/2020 7:26:11 PM

Pros: Best non-SSD
Makes a lil spool-up noise when waking (yes, I do like it)

Cons: Produces more heat than other conventional drives
Makes muffled old-school nut-grinder noises when accessing data (not silent)

Overall Review: Faster, and smaller format than other conventional HDDs
It's the last (and the peak) of the spinny's.

This is a new drive. 6/6/2020 10:43:32 AM

Pros: Item came in a Western Digital box, sealed in an anti-static bag. Pass Mark showed zero hours run so it is a new drive. I’ve made some initial tests with it connected externally in a USB 3 docking port and it shows 90 MB/s copy speed either from my WD Black scratch Drive or my Samsung m.2 C drive. It does get a little hot but it’s silent as far as whine goes except for a few seconds when spinning up. The seek sounds are very audible however. Date of manufacture on label shows as May of 2015 so even though it’s new, it’s 5 years old.

Cons: I don’t think I really need to reiterate not to purchase for a laptop. It’s double height and gets hot.

Overall Review: I bought this drive just to see how it runs. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it. I do know whatever I do or wherever I finally put it,, I’ll make sure it’s well ventilated. For the money, it’s a darn good drive.

Fast And Hot (heat) 6/5/2020 5:34:52 AM

Pros: This VelociRaptor is fast and also running hot when it works. The bigger cache and rpm really make the difference.

Cons: Yesterday (June 5, 2020), this drive started giving me an error message saying "bad sector failed to restore" when I restored my OS Windows 10 backup.

Overall Review: If you are on a budget and want a faster regular HD, this drive is your next best thing beside SSD. Just make sure don't use it in a laptop. I must have a bad luck receiving a defective one. I'll contact Newegg later on today.

Be very careful with these 5/12/2020 5:56:25 AM

Pros: Fast, reliable, and quiet

Cons: They do run hot, so mind the directions and do NOT put in a laptop.

Overall Review: Be aware that many sellers are marking these as new, but are used/refurbished. I found this out when I went to register with Western Digital and was told that the serial number was from 2015, not 2020.
