Expert Review

We wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't mention at least one high-speed drive with enterprise performance as an aspect in its design, and this is what the Western Digital VelociRaptor is all about. While performance can be argued for RAID and enterprise drives to be about capacity and long-term sustainability, it doesn't mean high-speed performance doesn't matter to some RAID users. In this case, the 10,000 RPM drive of the VelociRaptor will do the trick. The only concern here is the limited 600GB capacity, sadly encouraging you to be a large number of them to be able to achieve the capacity you desire. Still, the 10,000 RPM design offers wonderfully fast speeds compared to 7200 RPM and 5900 RPM drives, and the long 5-year warranty assures your drive for long haul. All in all, these factors all make the VelociRaptor still a fairly good choice for those who value speed over capacity in their RAID.Rating: 4/5
