NeoDaemon69 thinks:

Hmmm might have to try one of these out to replace the aging 74Gb Raptor.


One typo though in the article "Supplier: Western Didital"

About the Atomic article WD VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS

David Field spins up to operating speed in order to check out the latest from Western Digital.

What do you think?

Turns out there are two entries for Western Digital in the backend. One is spelled incorrectly, and comes first alphabetically.

Sure, blame the database then..

The new Raptors are SATA2 while the old ones are SATA1 hence why the new ones smash the old ones in performance - along with the better tech.

Well when you can get a 1TB hard drive for the same price... is this really worth it. I think it could come down a bit!

Staticice is telling me that a :
$328 Velociraptor 300gb
$178 Samsung F1 1000gb

So you could either be pretty happy with the performance of the Samsung or raid 0 a pair of samsung's for a ridiculous drive (and a ridiculous amount of data loss) for $356. Hell go for Raid 5 just to be safe, for $534.

I'm sure a velociraptor could not touch the performance of a pair of these things in raid 0.

But I still would like one in my desktop system - oh to be torn.

Where did AMD's k9 processor go? ....... I suspect it may be in a dim sim shop somewhere.

Horses for courses. You won't see anything like the access times you get on a Raptor on a multi-terrabyte RAID 5.

And if you do build that RAID 5, make sure you run Vista or XP-64. XP-32 can't see volumes bigger than 2TB.

Only in sequential tests. In real world apps with a smaller amount of data and lots of different files in different places, I imagine the Velociraptor would have the advantage. This is not a case of simple fragmentation, this is a case of all the files that being accessed simply being in different places on a disk. Think about a game starting up. Do you think that every single file the game requires will not only be perfectly defragged, but also all lined up after each other on disk in the order they need to be read?

Not likely!



I have a Velociraptor myself for OS and programs. I have two 500GBs in RAID 0 for storing large disc images and compressed/uncompressed video files. Works very nicely.

Or Linux...

(actually, my new storage system is going to be a ZFS system, handled by a Linux-running Mini-ITX board with a few gigabit NICs in it.)

Do you have a motherboard in mind?
Out of curiosity, what bus were you going to put the gig nics on?
