  1. Ok.
  2. tempting, but you can get 2.5TB for the same price
  3. You guys forget these are enthusiast drives.

    These drives are not built for storage, they're built for performance.

    The old Raptors sold great at $1/GB, these are faster than those and still selling for $1/GB but offer higher capacity. I wouldn't be so quick to knock them.
  4. Who on earth would buy a Porsche 911 when a Mini-van can carry more people and groceries and costs less.

    I'm really curious to see updated reviews of these drives.
    As good as some of the initial tests showed them to be, apparently there was a Firmware defect effecting part of the outter platters that limited the test results in the ES Samples.

    The shipping drives should be better yet.
  6. Rather get three of these myself for the money:

  7. Generally the ppl who need 10k+ RPM drivers are:

    1. People building file/web servers with out RAID

    2. People who need fast read/write with out RAID. (ie. When doing work with 2+ 100MB images in Photoshop)

    3. People who want THE fastest HDDs possible (no SDDs accounted here) with RAID.
