With the release of the 1TB version of the WD Velociraptor, it is now the largest capacity 10,000 RPM hard drive available. This drive is geared for creative professionals who demand the ultimate SATA drive. Creative pros use write-intensive applications that manage large, dynamic files; for example, video editing and digital content creation and management, which ultimately put a strain on storage devices that utilize write-challenged NAND memory for performance enhancement.

The WD VelociRaptor 2.5-inch hard drive comes in the IcePackâ„¢ enclosure, a 3.5-inch mounting frame with built-in heat sink – a factory customization that fits the drive into a standard 3.5-inch system bay and keeps the powerful drive extra cool when installed in a high-performance desktop or workstation system.

The WD VelociRaptor hard drives come with a five-year limited warranty. It has the following SRPs:

  • 1 TB (model #: WD1000DHTZ) is Php13,795.00
  • 500 GB version (model #: WD5000HHTZ) is Php9,295.00
  • 250 GB version (model #: WD2500HHTZ) is Php7,195.00
