Just got my new raptor from zipzoomfly and it worked great for the first 15 mins and then a noticable slow down and then nothing. I did the diagnostic, unplugged everything except the raptor to ensure that it wasn't a power issue, and got the error code 0007 which WD says is a drive that needs to be replaced. So here is the meat of the thread.

How many people have gotten DOA raptors?
Mine was not exactly DOA, but it died very shortly after I got it.

Returned it, sold the replacement, got a Hitachi 7K250 and never looked back.
