"What can you really say after seeing all of those benchmarks and
tests? Without a doubt the new Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB drive is
the fastest hard drive we have ever tested. The upgrade of the Raptor line
to the SATA 3.0 GB/s specification was well overdue and you can clearly see
that at least part of the performance boost was due to that change. With
burst speeds of 247 MB/s and sustained transfers over 110 MB/s the
VelociRaptor is the best enthusiast hard drive you'll find for any
application we can think of - games, boot times, video encoding, etc."
