Re: Raid 0: Is it worth it?
It definitely noticeable increases read/write speed, depends on how much space you actually need. I'm not sure whether 2x 7200 drives in Raid0 would go faster than a 10K or 15K RPM drive?
If you do Raid0, be sure to get reliable drives and/or frequently backup data on a seperate drive. If 1 drives fails in a RAID set-up you're SOL.
If anybody knows if 2x 1TB 7200 RPM drives in RAID0 would be faster than a 15K RPM drive let me know, I'm considering buying a 73GB 15K RPM drive as a boot / program drive.
