They should be cheap, since on the market we already have 15,000 rpm drives with 600GB, like the ones from Seagate, Hitachi, HP, Toshiba, etc

I wonder, how do those WD compare with a Velociraptor 600 on SATA 6Gbps?

It would be nice to have a model lineup geared towards enthusiast consumers which uses premium parts in terms of reliability. I don't mind spending some extra money but don't want it pissed away into a marketing budget.
