    Default Velociraptor or SSD?

    I've seen a few posts on this site today they are claiming SSD is one of the fastest options for data storage available right now however I have also seen several benchmarks that showed Western Digital's Velociraptor as faster performance. Are many of you quite sure about SSD speeds? Do you have any benchmarks against the velociraptor to show off?

    Or even better yet! Does anyone have a top of the line SSD and a Velociraptor drive they could test side by side?

    Also, does anyone know the estimated life spans of both devices? I could imagine with the velociraptor's faster moving parts it would wear itself out quicker than a normal drive.

    CLICK HERE for PureOC SSD Reviews

    The link above is a listing of all of the Solid State Disks that we have reviewed to date. In every test, if memory serves me correctly, have a comparison versus a Western Digital 300GB Velociraptor that was made on the same system at the same settings. There is not one review in there that shows the VelociRaptor beating a SSD.

    There are reasons to choose Velociraptor over SSD.. Speed isn't one of them.

    I can help you Anomalous......I've done all of PureOC's SSD reviews. I also own a Velociraptor and used it as a primary drive, and own several SSDs and run as a primary drive.

    I can tell you unequivocally that a Velociraptor is NOT faster than an SSD. The only SSD is might be faster is one of the old JMicron ones.

    Here is a quick list of benchmarks of a Velociraptor against a good mainstream SSD, the OCZ Agility:

    HD Tune Read (higher is better):
    Velociaptor: 88.4 MB/s avg, 150.3 burst
    OCZ SSD: 208 MB/s avg, 176.4 burst

    ATTO (higher is better):
    Velociraptor: 115705 read, 117200 write
    OCZ SSD: 240749 read, 156067 write

    PCMark Vantage (higher is better):
    Velociraptor: 5760
    OCZ SSD: 23132

    Crystal DiskMark 4K (higher is better):
    Velociraptor: 2.23 read, 0.64 write
    OCZ SSD: 29.27 read, 11.37 write

    Crystal DiskMark Sequential (higher is better):
    Velociraptor: 93.4 read, 97.9 write
    OCZ SSD: 231.8 read, 135.2 write

    Everest Access Times (lower is better):
    Velociraptor: 7.07 ms
    OCZ SSD: 0.09 ms

    IOMeter Avg Response (lower is better):
    Velociraptor: 9.97 ms read, 3.42 ms write
    OCZ SSD: 1.05 ms read, 0.07 ms write


    The SSD utterly crushes the Velociraptor in every single test I've ever conducted, including a few more than the ones I've listed above. Note the access and reponse times in particular, the SSD is almost 80 times faster on access. Instantaneous, utterly no wait time at all.

    Lastly, the system with the SSD is far quicker, more responsive, "snappier", and has insanely faster load times and transfer times than an identical Core i7 system setup with the Velociraptor.

    Save the money you'd put into a Velociraptor, put in a bit more, and get a good 128GB SSD, performance is like night and day. Then grab a standard HDD for storage and backup

    Hmm what about Seagate Cheetah anyone knows whats the story with these hdd's.I know they are 15000rpm and they are not too expensive either.Are they only for servers or something?

    Yes, they are primarily Enterprise drives. I used to have one but it was even a smaller capacity than the smallest SSDs. A Cheetah is fast, but still nowhere near as fast as an SSD. The physical properties of a HDD simply cannot compete with an SSD.

    I won't argue with that.Its just SSD's are too expensive atm.I have the velociraptor 300gb,there is a speed difference from my second 7200rpm hdd but nothing impressive and i myself looking to do something to speed up my system a bit more.I've seen the ''less expensive'' OCZ Solid 2 120gb SSD but still dont know if i could afford to buy one now.If you ask for my opinion though in a way i have regreted buying the velociraptor (for 200 euro) while with 70 more i could have the OCZ Solid.Anyway it 's up to your budget.

    Why not just get the Kingston SSDNow series? There is a 40GB Boot Drive that is around $100 USD, which is big enough to run your OS, and a few smaller programs. Then just run the rest of your programs on your VelociRaptor. That is what I am planning on doing, when I get the funding.

    @ Jake, I love the review of the 60 GB OCZ Vertex. I just picked one up on Saturday afternoon for my new rig.

    I'll let you know in a few days as i just got the 60 GB Vertex and that is how I will be setting it up. Unless i run out and get another and try a Raid setup.

    Do NOT bother with the Solid 2 SSD. Don't go there.

    The Kingston 40GB SSD is a very impressive little drive and is much more affordable. You could install Win 7 and a few major programs, or go with it for the OS and the Velociraptor for programs.

    Right now with my primary system I'm using a 128GB SSD for Win 7 and programs, and Velociraptor for data.

    Go for it ... dont even bother thinking about it !
    I had the VelociRaptor as my Boot drive, when i bought the Intel X-25M G2 and used it as my boot drive i had totally no regrets and the only regret was to have bought the SSD earlier

    The Kingston is not "better" than an OCZ Vertex but it is MUCH cheaper. The Kingston 40GB SSD is very good though, and excellent for the price. It's a very good entry-level SSD. Heck you could even buy 2 and RAID0 them for killer performance and 80GB!
