I was surfing through NewEgg and PassMark.com today for an actual hard drive to put in my system instead of a little 2.5" notebook drive I've been using. I've always been looking at a 150gb VelociRaptor, but when I searched it in PassMark's performance database, it came up that the Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 (ST3500418AS) actually performs better than the VelociRaptor. Is this true? I know that it probably takes storage size into consideration - 1000 vs 150 gigabytes, but all I'm looking for here is speed/performance over size. I probably know that answer to this, but which one is a faster drive overall? And is it worth getting a VelociRaptor over the Barracuda 7200.12?
