Sweet, $380 for a nice 150gb raptor. Now imagine if you had two of those in RAID. lol

150G raptor for $380 is really pushing the Price/Performance ratio.

I'd rather have a new Seagate Drive with the 16MB cache, NCQ, 300GIG, SATA 3.0 - for just over $200.

As long as you kept the disk clean and defragged... It would be just as nice as that 10K 150G raptor at much less the cost with double the storage.

LOL, that is way to much, plan and simple, get a set of 36's or 74's and put that in raid zero, better speed, and performance. I can get sata2 wd2500js for $89.00, THE HECK with buying that, I love westren digital but comon! crap i can get there new WD Cavial SE16 400 for under $200 for 400 gigs.

I don't know why people are complaining about the storage capacity. You don't buy Raptors for storage, you buy them for speed.

i concur. i thought raptors always came in either 8mb or 16mb cache versions? 150gb is new news (sorta coz i already read about it at unlimited-tech) so thats cool.
