    Re: 150 Gig Raptor Review!

    Thanks. I figured so but thought I would ask. Another gentlemen a couple pages back benched his 2 150GB Raptors and mentioned that he had infact turned his read caching off during his testing. I couldn't see the reasoning behind that so figured I was ignorant on the matter and should probably ask, incase I am missing something.

    Re: 150 Gig Raptor Review!

    I've had mine running now for the last three weeks and so far I've been impressed as hell from the heat point of view - the raptor case is sitting at 42 degrees C as compared to a 200 GB Seagate 7.2K running at 49.7 degrees C. Not much noise difference between the drives either.

    This is the beauty of owning your own computer retail shop - you can buy all the latest toys and then write of the cost from your taxes at the end of the year !!!!

    Seriously, it's a nice drive, applications when clicked on is just there on the screen - no lag nothing. MP3 encoding using DAE 9 is a dream and a test of video rendering has cut the normal time by 17 minutes. The video test was rerun a couple of times by rendering first on the Seagate SATA II and then on the Raptor with each test being almost the same, give or take a few seconds.

    GO BUY ONE
