[StorageReview] Another Review of the VelociRaptor

Western Digital continues to stand alone as the only manufacturer offering a 10,000 RPM spindle speed coupled with a standard SATA interface. Here at StorageReview we have admittedly been quite enthusiastic with each new Raptor release. The improvements between the the VelociRaptor and its predecessor, however, dwarf all previous upgrades.

The drive's single-user scores, climbing by as much as 30% when compared to the WD1500ADFD's, blow away those of every other disc. Its noise and power measurements are among the lowest we have ever recorded. Topping it all off, the unit's multi-user scores for the first time bring a Raptor drive within striking distance of that of a 10K RPM SAS unit. Oh, let's not forget about the doubled capacity... 300 GB finally brings WD's 10K offering back into an eminently-usable range in today's capacity-hungry world.

I think its 2.5" but they also add a heatsink that takes up the rest of the space.

The new Raptor is thicker than a laptop HD. 10K and 15K RPM is commonplace for a 2.5" server HD.
Once again...
