SO i was looking at the raptor HD's the 150gig and was woundering are they really worth buying? Can i really tell the differences between something that isnt 10,000 RPM?
I Bought a 74 Gig Raptor V2 (16MB cache, NCQ)
and i love it. Of all the upgrades ive done, this is one of the better ones.
I would probably say your drive is a 5400 RPM drive in which case you will be amazed.
As far as noise, when you transfer large files or run larger apps you can hear it "grinding away" . I like the sound, i like to hear it working.
and it is definetly not too loud. so dont worry about that.
I recommend you buy one, i think it would be a great upgrade for pretty much anyone.
