  1. I can't believe you didn’t salvage the earth magnets inside. Those things are cool.
  2. why was the part about the Raptor X and the differences between them removed? This is the part that really bugs me in an otherwise excellent review that is out before everyone else. Good work! But back to the problem. There is according to many sources 2 versions of this drive. Not even mentioning this in the review (at least it wasn’t mentioned in the one I read) is discouraging. WD complained about you stealing thunder from there CES announcement? As a desktop user a “gamer†version seems very enticing if it’s not all bling bling. Single user firmware could potentially be a big improvement. I was hoping to press the order button right about now but I guess I have to wait. Anyone who read the review while it contained info on this like to share some info? Whatever the reason for not sharing the info on the different version of the 1500 I think you could at least mentioned the problem and said something about it even if its just we cant comment right now.
  3. I liked the review and see no point in "waiting" for some theoretical apples to apples comparison. If the manufacturers want there drives reviewed its up to them not SR. SR provides a great service as far as I am concerned. I bought this drive as it seemed a good compromise between noise, performance and capacity. Keep up the good work and release the drives as soon as you are done!

    Next Generation Raptor?

    I have a listing here that shows: Western Digital Raptor 150GB SATA2 16MB 10000RPM GAMER WD1500AHFD So that would indicate that the AHFD is the gamer version. This is also listed but it does not say "server" or "Gamer": Western Digital Raptor 150GB SATA2 16MB 10000RPM WD1500ADFD The link I followed from a price engine did however list the last one as the "server" version.

    IBM Deskstar 180GXP

    Why isnt this the second 7200 disk on the leaderboard? It is clearly better then the 120GPX, no? Whats up with the comments about the defective disk? I think we all know he dint mean there is a 50/50 chance with IBM. But it does not look good to send out defective parts, be it to review sites or ordinary consumers. I for one think IBM still has a lot to prove with regards to the functions of there disks.
