Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Expert Review

Western Digital's VelociRaptor, per its name, is meant to strike fear in your files because of its verocious speeds. Okay, so verocious may be an exaggeration, but when all is said and done this 10,000RPM drive is much faster than the standard 7,200RPM drives on the market, and in order to keep the price low, WD cuts back the capacity to a modest (but still decent) 500GB. The VelociRaptor, looking not to be the best in speed, tries instead to keep a rather modest price and capacity but still faster than most drives on the market. For these reasons the VelociRaptor is still a good drive for those who want a bump in speed but can't break out a ton of cash for it either.Rating: 4.75/5
