    Raptor or VelociRaptor? I assume you are comparing Raptors with 10k rpm SAS or SCSI?

    Raptors are pretty fast, used to run them on a gameing PC before i switched to SSD.
    SAS / SCSI is the actual connection to the motherboard / raid card.
    raptors are connected via SATA.

    For reliability, I would opt for SAS Drives. Don't get me wrong the VelociRaptors (and Raptors) are great drives. I just don't think I would run them in my servers.

    Though I'm more curious than ever to attempt such a setup. Unless of course anybody else has already done so and cares to share.

    "A look at the I/O benchmark results makes very clear that those SAS drives still are the crème de la crème when it comes to I/O intensive server workloads such as file servers or web servers (10-50% more performance for the 2.5" SAS drives), databases or workstation applications (up to 100% more performance with 2.5" SAS drives). However, these differences are only important in server scenarios, where lots of concurrent commands are pending."
