Western Digital Raptor WD1500ADFD 150GB

The Western Digital Raptor WD1500ADFD 150GB drive boasts 1.2 million hours MTBF, 10,000RPM spindle speed, 16MB buffer, NCQ (native command queuing), data transfer rate of 1.5GB/s and a 5-year warranty. The Raptor drives are really an enterprise-class hard drive, but all this goodness comes at a cost price wise they fall between full SCSI drives and consumer level SATA drives. Only the true enthusiast need apply.

The appeal, of course, to the Raptor line is its 10,000 rpm spindle rate which make them the fastest-spinning drives for the consumer market. The primary limitation of the Raptor line, however is its areal density and limited capacity compared to other drives out there in its same price range. Make no mistake, these drives are solely intended for those who demand the utmost in data throughput for their SATA needs.
