Demand for Western Digital's 10K RPM Serial ATA Raptor drives has been so high that the company is doubling production of the drive. The Raptor is apparently selling quite well in entry level server markets, and based on its performance in our 10K RPM hard drive comparison, it's easy to see why.
The one knock against the Raptor is that the drive is currently only available in a 36GB capacity. However, Western Digital will reportedly offer a 72GB, dual-platter version of the drive in October. Western Digital already offers Serial ATA versions of its popular 7200RPM Caviar line in capacities as high as 250GB, but those drives can't keep up with the Raptor's performance or match its 5-year warranty.
