velociraptors for library drives?

I am thinking of picking up some Velociraptor drives to use as sample / library drives.

Do they need to stay in those Ice Pack enclosures? Anybody use these drives?

Still slow compared to SSDs.

I had four Raptors, and SSDs wiped the floor with them, performance-wise, besides being SILENT, easier to mount due to no vibration, and much cooler. I didn’t miss the 40W and the dedicated fan required. :smiley:

I would so go SSD. I have a few now. It’s just cost. I need around 4TB of storage. Ugh…

Bites you in the bum every time!

Crazy thing though…I’ll buy everything else…but I always skimp on drives…go fig…

Your signature gave that one away! :wink:
