I see about a 20-25% improvement over my old 150GB Raptor.
I doubt whether it's really worth it to put down $300 for a 300GB HD, but then again this IS the fastest thing out there...
*Shakes fist* mine went on back order from NCIX, showed plenty in stock on tues when I ordered now they are down to 4, hopefully it's just a matter of them shipping from an outlet and not waiting to be resupplied at the warehouse.
