Hey, I was wondering if you plan on offering the new WD 300GB Velociraptor in your systems. If so when will you be getting them in? Thanks

Hello Superunknown,
 
              We will be receiving the WD 300GB Velociraptor early to mid June. It will be posted on our forum, once it is able to be purchased through the AVADirect website.

After finally seeing some comparisons, the Seagate with a 32mb cache seems like a much smarter buy. almost equal speeds, more capacity, anddddddd 200 dollars less!!!!

"However, the current (as of 2004) technology actually slows down HD access in certain applications, like games and sequential reads & writes, because of the added latency induced by NCQ logic." ~ Wiki

Yes, but OS files are small and numerous.  NCQ is great for reading data which is small and in many small files like OS and certain applications.  The more numerous the files, the better NCQ is.
