    for the price of a single raptor X, I'd rather have two 160gb Seagate 7200.10's or a single, larger drive with 16mb cache.

    there's no denying they're fast and have good "cool factor", but they're just a terrible buy from a practicality standpoint. Especially when you consider that game installs are gobbing up gigabytes at an alarming pace. The flight simulator
    X-plane uses up to 60GB of hard drive if you install all of the terrain maps contained on the 6 DVDs.

    My only complaint about the 2.5 Gen Raptors is their 150GB size and maybe they could be a little quieter.

    They are easily the fastest hard drives I have ever used and that is including the first 4 generations of Seagate's 15,000 RPM Cheetahs.
    In a desktop environment, they were not exactly all that and a bag of chips, and compared to the cost of Cheetahs, Raptors are a veritable bargain.

    I'd love to see what's faster.
