messiah khan said:Very nice. Price isn't though.
lol thats the way i felt, i new my raptor was fast when i first got it but 15K sata sas drive thats gotta be very quick the price tag makes me cry i want 2 in raid but thats £1Krpstewart said:It's the same price as the SCSI version goes for. Yeah it's heck of an expensive per Gb in comparison to a 7200rpm SATA drive but this isn't a SATA drive. These are drives which are designed to operate 24/7 for their entire life, and that's actually transferring data 24/7 not just powered up.
Check out the sustained transfer rate - 125MB/s
I don't want one though - I want 4 of them
me too but i find myself deleting files of my 36gb raptor everyday as my program files just keep on growing and growing, this new seagate drive is the fastest sata drive out and will be for a while, personally i dont see WD competing and if they do my god are they going to be pricy, the raptors are dear enough let alone one with a bigger motormessiah khan said:I would be more tempted by a 36Gb (ish) drive just for windows, as I prefer keeping windows/applications/games on seperate drives.
yeah i run windows and all my progs off the raptor it will be faster than reading them from another drive and thats what i bought it for, what do u just run windows off yours and thats itmessiah khan said:What do you mean program files? You installing programs to the raptor as well? I install all my programs to another drive. Ive currently got 28Gb free on the raptor.
