Anyone know if Velociraptors will come in smaller (in terms of GB) sizes?

I get between 2-5 a week with dead drives, and maybe 1 dead desktop drive a week... I think the main problem is people using notebooks like desktops never turning them off and always on them, laid on carpet where they can't cool very well etc.

Which means nothing without the context.

Live recording of music and monitoring you want as low of a latency as you can possibly get, especially when you are loading many files and laying them over other files while recording. Its more really for digitaly produced music then band recording.

Well if there are many tracks I can imagine that you're right. Though I highly doubt many people here would do enough for it to matter. Of course it also depends on the format, if it's all uncompressed data requirements go up rapidly.

No also very true, I'm not arguing the usefullness or lack of usefullness of them, I just can't imagine them being able to sell enough 36-74gb drives to justify the cost of making them.

Until I read it further, I was under the impression these were the same enterprise drives brought to sata2 level and higher capacity, in which case size means a lot because they land themselves in lots of servers.
