Shame that you can't see it inside a case.

I used the italics as you can't realistically see it, unless you move at a very tight angle to it and then you can say "thats my see through harddrive." - real cool...

well, if you look around the site, there seems to be some form of raptor-x 'certified' case. the HDD mounts sideways against a window, or an acrylic case. i DLed the video, which basically shows it in slow motion, although it still looks like it is moving VERY fast. you can tell it is slowmo as teh fans are crawling around.
