WD VelociRaptor - PCMark05 Test

Longer bars are better

The HDD component of the PCMark05 benchmark suite zipped along on the VelociRaptor while the Raptor and Hitachi had nearly identical performance. Plugging a VelociRaptor into a decent PC will yield benefits on a day-to-day basis.

The other test we carried out was to copy files on each drive and once again the VelociRaptor won by a country mile. The Crucial SSD did well and pipped the Raptor, leaving the Hitachi 7K1000 in last place.
