Western Digital Velociraptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB SATA Hard Drive
If you want your computer to go faster, one of the best solutions is to make sure you have a faster hard drive. SSD drives are really fast, but they come with higher prices. The Western Digital Velociraptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB SATA Hard Drive gives you very good speed with a reasonable price. No, it isn't going to be the cheapest drive you can buy. The average read speed for this drive is 161.9 MB/s compared with the Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid drive I discussed in January 2012 that has an average read speed of 91.3 MB/s. The average write speed of 160.5 MB/s is also much better than the Momentous' speed of 89.1 MB/s. These speeds are very impressive! This drive combines a 10,000 RPM (revolutions per minute) spin with a 64 MB cache and 6.0 GB/s SATA support to hit such high marks. So if you are looking for a hard drive to speed up your machine, this is a drive you definitely should investigate.
