The Velociraptor was a small, carnivorous dinosaur, well known to the public since the first Jurassic Park movie. Although it was oversized in the movie and its teamwork abilities are in dispute, using the dinosaurís name, which in Latin means "swift thief", appears to be a really smart move for hard drive manufacturer Western Digital. The company has produced a family of excellent enthusiast hard drives for years - the Raptor - and the next generation strives for providing more capacity and better performance with radically changed physical dimensions.

I pre-ordered two of them and hope to have them sometime this week. Seeing as they are faster than some of the SSD out there, $302 is a very fair price

total waste of cash in my opinion.  I have two Samsung HD753LJ 750GBs in RAID0 and I'm sure they yield pretty close read speeds compared with two Velociraptors.

Set me back only $300 bucks too (1.5GB total)
