First Look: Western Digital VelociRaptor Hard Disk Drive
Another rubbish article
Yet a nice hdd. Two small corrections: "more optimal" and 'noise from coolers absorbs the hdd noise'.
What I'd like is an article comparing top platter capacity single platter drives from all major brands. And a noise rank as well.
And yes, if you can fit in 64GB, a SSD will also do the job - it will give you comparable real-life performance for about 3x the price (and ~1/5 of the size).
From my personal experience with SATA, SCSI single or raid configurations, there is no HDD to compare with good SSD.
For 300USD you can buy high performance 64GB SSD and 500GB HDD.
this combination will give you much more performance and storage capacity then single velociraptor.
