Just thought you guys might like the review of the new raptor hdd.
Hard drive enthusiasts are a curious bunch. You either know you are one or you know if you are not. While many of us are worried about how many gigabytes we can cram into a single bay, Western Digital has made a huge brand for itself over the last few years with the Raptor name. We have used WD Raptor drives as our primary system testing drives for years now here at HardOCP. We moved from 36GB to 74GB to 150GB hard drive sizes. Today WD kicks off its next-gen Raptor in the VelociRaptor.
To get you up to speed we have included a few pictures of our test drive along with Western Digitalâ€™s full VelociRaptor media deck. Here is a 3D overview that has some great mouse-overs as well that will give you the highlights in a more dramatic way. One look at the VelociRaptor will tell you that this ainâ€™t your Mommaâ€™s 10,000 RPM hard drive.
