Western Digital recently launched their third-generation VelociRaptor hard disk drive, which continues to be the world's only 10,000 RPM hard disk drive with a SATA interface. The third-generation VelociRaptor improved on its predecessor by using Advanced Format Technology (AFT) and higher-density platters to deliver not only 1 TB of storage capacity but also a sustained throughput of 200 MB/s. Take a look at its key features :

- Ultra fast
- Rock-solid reliability
- Ultra-cool operation
- Advanced Format (AF)
- IcePack™ mounting frame
- NoTouch™ ramp load technology
- Pre-emptive Wear Leveling (PWL)
- Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF™)

We did a short analysis of the drive earlier, but we are now able to produce a full review, after extensively testing this drive. Let's take a closer look!
