Eric, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
CrystalDisk gives these drives a read/write score of 288.2/279.0 on a RAID 10 configuration versus 273.4/90.2 for the former 600Gb model in the same configuration. Clearly it seems the 64Kb cache is helping. Improved disk density is also a positive factor.
Bad points:
Cost per Gb is higher but you pay for what you get.
