    They used to have a video on Seagate's site that showed this drive head to head against a standard HDD, an SSD, and I believe a Raptor. From what I remember, only the SSD was faster with the series of tests they were running on them.

    they are pretty damn amazing, makes for a very snappy machine, fairly quiet and does the job well
