The VelociRaptor operates between 26 and 31 degrees in my case. My other three WD5000AAKS drives are all between 30 and 36 degrees.
Seeking is VERY quiet. If you have a few case fans on, then you won't even hear the VelociRaptor seeking. My old 150GB Raptor, on the hand, was quite loud.
Sounds impressive regarding the figures and when you look at the sound aqustics! I thought that the 150GB and 300GB VelociRaptor had the same performance before I looked at this.
When I looked at the price here in Sweden, the price at Komplett.se is at 361.69 $. So from what I can see the prices seems to have been dropped a bit.
