Sorry, my bad, you are correct sir. It is faster, but still a great deal for a smaller drive.

But it's also $180, so at this price a couple of the 300GBs in RAID 0 is a pretty good deal.

So how is the 600GB faster than the 300GB?.......it isn't.
The 600GB uses 2 300GB platters and this drive uses a single 300GB platter. Both drives should perform the same.

Wasn't the 600gb $100 the other day? And it's faster than the 300gb.
The 600gb is almost twice as fast as my incredibly fast samsung HD502J

Yes, the new WD Black drives do get close to this drive in pure read/write speeds.......but the access times of these Raptor's is much lower and will result in a much snappier experience in Windows.
It's certainly no SSD drive, but for $69 i'm buying one to throw in my parents pc where a 120GB SSD is just too small for them.

|lolrofllol||Isn't this one of the old ones? IIRC new WD Blacks get close, if not surpass it's performance.|
