I have access to 4 80gb hard drives (early sata, 2003 ish) and want to know if anyone else has experimented with the speeds of them in RAID.

More about : raid0 80gb hard drives

The speeds will still be less than a single SSD and 4 Drives in Raid 0 would be extremely unreliable as if one drive fails all the Data on all the drives will be lost.

Mechanical Hard Drives In Raid 0 dont really feel that much faster. Have tried 2 1TB 7200rpm drives in raid 0 before, but an SSD is on a whole other level of responsiveness.

Actually I do.
I had two pc's setup with raid0 using two 80 WD jb drives and when I upgraded one pc I threw the extra drives into the other.

Using motherbd raid I first tried a 4 drive raid 5.
- performance was simply awful. LoL

Next I setup a 4 drive raid 0
- Performance had improved alot and was almost a match for the upgraded system that was using the new (then) Seagate 320gb's with PMR recording technology in a two drive raid0. The Seagates were topping out at at around 160GB/s sequential reads and the fours 80's were doing about 150.

edit - I just wanted to add that I still have those drives. LoL
