    One big advantage of the RAID 0+1 setup is that if you loose a HDD you don't loose the system. :thumb:
    Just put a new drive in and the RAID can then be repaired back to it's original state. ;)

    if you are lucky enough, you can lose two drives and still have it working.. depending on which two die. :)

    dude that's a good price. I wonder if I should get the ATA133 one for expansion purposes if I ever upgrade my drives to that speed.

    It can't hurt as it's backwards compatible. ;)

    I think that it's because he has so much knowledge it keeps leaking out to make room for more. :cheers:

    I agree, I would hate to put together an expensive RAID setup to have it out-performed a less expensive, single drive in two months by the next technology (serial ATA)

    And one thing that I don't think was quite covered well enough, let this be known, that if some bad sectors occur on ONE of the drives, (or other various problem with one drive only) will result in the loss of ALL the data on BOTH drives in nearly all cases.

    well I learnt alot and I'm saying NO!! to raid. raid is bad. My IBM drive will suffice. I just wanna know why it scores soooooooo low in pcmark 2002 I'm getting like um 506? while my friend has a WD 40 gig 7200 RPM and is getting over 700. his drive raped mine. but IBM drives have faster seek times then wd's I have 8.5 and he has 8.9. Why is this?
