Once we step away from the pure linear nature of HD Tune Pro, we can see where the SSD regains all of the ground it lost and then some. In the Sequential test the VelociRaptor RAID setup still pumps out incredible numbers, but once we move on to random reading of smaller file-sizes the RAID setup drops markedly, to such a level the single drive keeps up.
Moving on to the write testing the results are fairly similar. A lot of SSDs suffer from comparatively poor write performance and here when dealing with 512K chunks the VelociRaptor RAID just manages to keep its lead.
The access time difference is really what allows the SSD to annihilate it when dealing with the tiny 4K tests.

I just would use it for large programs, games and what not and the SSD for windows and smaller programs.

Before SSDs there was the Western Digital VelociRaptor. With price per GB seemingly stable, it's time to revisit the HDD performance King.
There still alot of people who would still buy them as they are becoming cheaper Quote
