    I'm running x64 on two 10000 RPM Ultra320SCSI HDDs mounted in RAID 1. These
    are not Raptors, but they are 10000 RPM hard drives, though. Hope this helps

    I wouldn't buy anything marked Western Digital. I've replaced way too many
    of them.

    Check out prices for the other brands. They run higher. There's a reason.

    Only my opinion of course but that's what you asked for...

  4. Thanks for the input. That is the kind of information I am looking for.

    I've never had a WD hard drive go bad. They are like
    Timex. "Take a licking and keep on ticking"

    I agree. I've never had a problem. WD does make some cheapo drives, but I,
    ahem, always assumed that they were "priced appropriately" compared to the
    enterprise drives.

    My SCSI hard dik drives are made by Maxtor, they are top performers as well
    as very reliable. I would suggest Maxtor for you if you are looking for a
    good 10000 RPM HDD. But it's SCSI interface, so you'll have to invest in a
    SCSI controller and a good SCSI cable with terminator. You can find all that
    on eBay in excellent condition and at very good price also :)

    I have replaced FOUR WD in the last two years!
    Purchased Seagate ones, and so far no problems....

    I have 2 x 74GB Raptors in my x64 system (Asus P5WD2, Intel P4 3.73GHz). Also
    a couple of Raptors in my other PC:s. Never had a problem with any of them.
    WD also offers 5 years warranty for Raptors.
