Are they much faster than the standard 150gig raptors?

Well seeing how they have SATA 3.0Gb I would say yes. They sad that they reduced the noise, but people saying they are still loud. If it wasnt for the noise I would get it, but I have 3 WD6400AAKS HDD's 2 in raid 0 and its working great for me

It's not just that SATA 3 GB makes it faster, it's just a faster drive in all areas compared to the 150GB. It also consumes the same amount of power.
