You get twice the storage for half the price.
Will you really notice the difference in speed?

Just want some opinions on what you guys would prefer.

Thanx

  1. hmmm..., i had, both in two seperate machines... i have to say that i do not really notice any difference other than the Raptor is a little louder... The Caviar 640 Black is a GREAT Hard Drive!!! get that before the velociraptor...
  2. The Velociraptor is noticeably faster for hard drive limited applications (and is actually quieter than the Caviar Black - I have a pair of velociraptors and a Caviar Black 1TB, and the Caviar is noticeably louder than both velociraptors). Whether it is worth the money is up to you though - it is definitely a significant price premium.

    The older Raptors are definitely not worth it though - they are only slightly faster than the Caviar, and are quite a bit louder and more power hungry. The Velociraptor was a significant improvement over the older Raptors in every way.
