Ford Escorts are faster than Lamborghini Diablo's!!

Oh I didn't mention, in MPG. But not in speed.

Durrrr, raptor's are faster.

aGREED.

Seek times isnt what its all about..

I personally prefer thoroughput, because what the difference in seek times (in real world applications (not software here)) translates into isnt much I gather.
I mean - when you're transferring a 4GB DVD to another drive ect, THEN you'll understand why its nice to have good throughputs. And I prefer faster transfers on LARGE files, rather than faster transfers (barely) on smaller files.

Gaming for eg would prefer teh raptors.

Personally for me - I could never choose ANYTHING WD over seagate/ MAXTOR (<3) lol.
BECAUSE SEAGATES LIVE LONGER. And maxtors are... fossils in disguise lol.
Sure there are exceptions.. but

If you do a lil extended enquiry, you'll realize that Western Digitals usually are more confined to that 3 year average lifespan so to speak.
They just dont live as long as Maxtors, and Seagates.


A friend tells me that he has found it has a great deal to do with climate though .

But what I HAVE FOUND, is that their mechanisms are REALLY no friends of dirty/inconsistent power.

FAulty PSU molex on a WD = BAD BAD BAD BAD. (more so than other drives).

i know Raptors have quicker seek times than my Samsung drives, but in the real world, my 7200 RPM RAID-0 is faster than a comparable system with a single Raptor. you can run benchmarks until you're blue in the face, but i will still load Battlefield maps faster than you

btw, i consider myself a relatively normal user and i have almost 50% of my 640 gigs used up.

Bias much? Uhh, any ? I heard that Maxtors are terribly unreliable. I'm not sure if they cleaned up their act now. Either way, each to their own opinion, but WD's are very popular for a reason. Seagates are great too. You see users using both of these brands quite often, but what about Maxtor? You can't judge a brand based on their warranty.

I know raptors FTW

I bet if I get enough 36 giggers in raid0 I will be unstoppable for the next 100 years

Pay attention, the title of this thread needs to be changed to "WD Raptor Challenged."

Raptors are still tops, in real world performance. Turns out the title wasn't that alarming.

what can I say? you cannot argue with one who, when shown the facts, the cold hard numbers which cannot be affected by any sort of bias, retaliate with biased opinions and flame the scientific experiment accusing it of being biased....when their opinions are backed up with no proof whatsoever and they dont listen to any of DuckieHo's or other peoples statements. Ninjaboy didnt listen to ANYTHING anyone responded to; either that or he doesn't understand what they were trying to say. He just kept saying that the 7200.10 beat raptors already; then when duckie disproved him, he changed his argument to "they are better because OCN recommends it"

ZOMG people can you not open your mind and try to learn something instead of repeating the same bs every single friggin post....

32MB cache means nothing for a single user desktop PC. You get around 1-2% performance going from 8MB to 16MB. In theoretical benchmarks 7200.10's come close but in real time apps even RAID0 setups fade in contrast to a single raptor


Raptors still win in random access.
------------------------------------------
But the 7200.10's already beat the Raptors in benchmarks and applications.(the previous poster just addressed this) So, with more cache (again, addressed) and new technology these new Seagate Barracuda 7200.11's will likely the king of hard drives.
MAYBE the 7200.11, just maybe...but not the 7200.10's

not by a long shot

Why do people suggest an 8800gts for a build with a budget? why dont people suggest SLI GTX's and 2KW PSU's and QX6850's?

oh and to the OP.

looks like blatantly deceptive posts are becoming increasingly popular
