I'm not sold on these drives. I would rather buy 4 Samsung F3 and raid them.
WD need to get with the times and get some SSD going. Infact what better way to progress the Raptor than to bring out an SSD that trumps everything else?
Sadly WD lately are reminding me of Jack Horner in the movie Boogie Nights. They seem to be refusing to get with the times and it's odd Bryan mentioned VCR because WD are living in the VCR age.
It will cost them eventually. By the time they do release a SSD (and let's face it they're going to have to) the entire world will come down on them like we all did on Nvidia for a bitterly dissapointing start with the 4 series (above all price was the deciding factor on that one, at least now they're cheap enough to ignore all the flaws).

But my OS is slow as heck so this 600GB 10k RPM drive would serve nicely next to a Mushkin Callisto Deluxe 60GB SSD
since I'm a Western digital fan and Mushkin seems promising
Just be careful. On SATA 3 controllers they can act up and after reading a review on them in Custom PC (though admittedly one, not Raid 0) they weren't anything special. And by the time you raid 0 them for over £400 you can buy a huge SSD.
