This drive has no reason to exist!

You will have much better reliability, security and speed by simply adding a read only switch to a 1 Terrabyte 5400RPM 2.5 inch drive with a 4 to 16GByte Cache (4 for XP machines and 16GB for Windows 7)

The Data would be safe as its Read Only when you need it to be (NO VIRUSES EVER) yet All Cached Data would be rewritable and available at speeds WAY Faster than a simple little 10,000 RPM Drive !

We want to PROTECT OUR DATA!

Give us a Drive we can switch to READ ONLY MODE and have a 4GB Cache for Read Write operations!

Set the Cache to load ALL programs that loaded in the first 60 seconds on the last bootup and have it cached and ready to load as soon as the BIOS has finished loading and BAMMO, we got our 2 second boot times!

Your Drive is CRAP Gentlemen

I'm a Freakin Expert so I should know

Yes it is the highest capacity small form factor enterprise drive available @ 10000RPM

Do you have a small form factor enterprise drive available @ 10000RPM of higher capacity or are you just wasting time here again?

It IS the highest capacity 10k RPM drive out there. And it's in a 2.5" form factor instead of the WD Velociraptor's 3.5". Previously, the largest 10K RPM 2.5" form factor drive you could find was a 300GB from Western Digital. On NewEgg, you could only find a 73GB HDD in 2.5" but a 146GB 15k RPM drive is available.

Anyway you look at it, your 640GB 2.5" drive isn't in the same class of drives the article is talking about. Seriously, try to think about what you're saying before you go sticking your foot in your mouth so often.

Dude, you just don't get technology do you? It IS the largest capacity 10,000RPM drive in the 2.5" formfactor. People who are looking for out-right performance are NOT INTERESTED in your nice little 640GB 5400 RPM drive. What do you NOT GET about enterprise class drives vs. low power, low performance laptop drives?

Evidently, you don't get it at all.
