  1. I have a V. Raptor and while it does perform well on a SATA II set up, I think you'll see the best results by going with the Caviar Black, i.e. more storage and a bit better performance, especially on a SATA 6 set up. FYI, both links are for the Caviar Black.
  2. If performance is the only criteria, the Velociraptor wins. The Caviar Black wins the price/performance ratio.

    If you are interested in performance, as indicated in your original post, then the Velociraptor is the winner. Not necessarily by a wide margin, but it will win most benchmarks. Is it worth the price premium to you?
  6. what do u mean Is it woth the price premiun to you
    are a owner of a Asus board ? wierd coz i ask for HD Advice...
  7. I simply meant that the Velociraptor is more expensive, but it performs a bit better. Is the extra cost of the Velociraptor worth the extra performance to you? It should be very easy to answer.
  8. Gee i was very tired i guess...
    is not really if u need an answer...
