Pros
Fast
Quality, 5 year warranty
Stays really cool (38c)
Cons
Price per gigabyte
Summary
The velociraptor is a beast and worth every penny if you're looking for that little bit extra.

Pick one up on sale and you'll be set until SSD's become the norm.

Pros
- Fast
- Runs cool
- Runs quiet
Cons
- Price
Summary
I originally bought this drive for its performance features.
Today, you can find drives with similar performance specs but with much larger capacities and lower prices (ie: WD Caviar Black line which I also own)

Pros
- Fast, 10,000 RPM, access speed is king
- Relatively silent
- Runs cool
- 5-year warranty
Cons
- EXPENSIVE!!!
- 300GB is a bit small
Summary
I bought this because SSD is not ready yet. This drive replaces a noisy 150GB Raptor X. The performance is slightly better but the additional capacity is a nice welcome. It should be noted that 7,200 RPM drives such as the Caviar Black are almost as fast as this baby for a much smaller price and larger capacity.

Pros
very fast, even beats SAS drives in some tests
comes mounted on a heatsink
Cons
price
louder than previous raptor
Summary
This is the fastest consumer mechanical hard drive you can get on the market today. Awesome transfer rates, very fast seek times. Performance wise, for normal operations just as fast as a much more expensive SAS drive (even exceeds performance in certain desktop operations), though it lags behind in raw sequential transfer rates and large volumes of IO requests. One of the best upgrades you can do to get a more responsive system (such as when starting applications, editing multimedia files, etc).

Pros
Fast, great for multitasking
Cons
Noisy, pricy.
Summary
I bought this drive because I wanted the fastest I can get without going to expensive SSD drives. 300GB was enough space for me. I'm happy with the speed of the drive, but I find it noisy when seeking. My old drive was a Hitachi and you could'nt hear a thing from it, so I'm really struggling to accept the Raptor. Still a good buy.

Pros
Speeeeeed!!!
Cons
Price?
Summary
WOW, this is a whole new experience fo me! I just couldn't stand my rattling TB drive anymore and pure frustration made me buy this baby. I thought I was going to need a special enclosure to keep it quiet, but this is one silent speed monster! I'm impressed and I do not even look at 7200 drives anymore. (maybe just for storage)

Summary
WOW! j'ai installé 2 de ces HDD en RAID 0 sur une Highpoint Rocketraid 2640X4 et je dois dire que je n'ai rien vu d'aussi rapide. Les SSD ne valent pas la peine.

Pros
FAST!
Lots of storage space for such a fast drive.
Not noisy, doesn't heat up like you would expect it to.
Cons
None that I can think of.
Summary
Simply the best hard drive the money can purchase at the moment. I migrated my vista partition from an old Raptor X because the space on it was getting way too short. 300gb is great and will keep my vista partition happy forever. Incredibly fast too. Buy this if you want the creme de la creme of hard drives.

Pros
Fast....realy fast
Surprisingly quiet
Cons
Price ?....but i want it so...
Summary
Really fast, before i had a Raid0 array with 2 Raptor 150g and i must say that i don't feel any slow down from my previous setup, this one is quiter then the 150g and it's cooler. Very impressive drive, maybe i'll go back to Raid0 for Christmas with an other one !

Pros
speed / Quiet
Cons
none at all
Summary
I didn't think the previous generation raptors were worth spending the money on but the new v-raptors really are worth it. They are nearly silent and use less power. So if your near capacity with your power supply you need not worry
about upgrading your power supply. Also very fast. Hands down the best drive for personal computers in my mind.

Comment: Fast forward to April 2008, when the fourth generation Raptor is announced. Titled the VelociRaptor, this new drive increases its maximum capacity to 300GB using two 150GB platters, reduces its form factor from 3.5? to 2.5?, and includes a 3.5? mounting bracket that doubles as a massive heatsink.

Comment: Another review from the kings of silent computing - SilentPCReview. They crown the WD Velociraptor at the triple crown winner for acoustics, power usage, and speed. That is, when you remove it from the bulky, useless heatsink.

Comment: The new VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS will ship in May at retail prices of approximately $300, and it is the fastest and coolest 3.5"-like hard drive you can get for desktop PCs.
