Replaced my dead WD 74GB Raptor HDD over the weekend.
The dead drive is still under warranty and I will be receiving a brand new replacement this week (or next).
As the Raptor line has been discontinued, I am likely to be sent a 74GB Velociraptor drive.
Short Spec List:
Western Digital VelociRaptor
3.5" Internal Hard Drive
As a Systems Engineer, I recommend the drive be used as the OS partition - it will be RAPID at 10,000 RPM e.g. Windows XP/7 boot times around the 30 second mark.
