Fast and Quiet
REALLY quiet drive that is super fast. In a RAID 0 configuration on an Areca ARC 1220 controller, two of these drives scored better in HDMark than a pair of 10,000 RPM WD raptors. I notice absolutely NO difference between these drives and the raptors, other than a huge reduction in noise (read head park and seek on raptors is quite loud). They stay moderately warm, around 47 C, but this is actually pretty cool for a 7200 RPM drive.
