Customer support at Samsung says that there is no measurable advantage to setting SSD's in RAID0... Can anyone confirm? Reply to LliamC m 0 l cin19 a c 154 G Storage April 9, 2014 8:46:21 AM Yes, they are right. I have the SSD in riad0 because I need more space so I got othe for raid. In real world they have almost same performances, but the raid0 is look very good in benchmark score. Reply to cin19 m 0 l LliamC April 9, 2014 8:48:16 AM cin19 said:Yes, they are right.

Ok well that's good to know... I get no benefit from having the RAID0 currently because it's not giving me extra storage... GG I guess a format is coming Reply to LliamC m 0 l Best solution popatim a c 920 G Storage April 9, 2014 6:45:00 PM it really sounds like you either have it at raid 1 and didnt catch that or only set a partition to use 50% of the space. Run diskmgmt.msc to see if theres unallocated space. but yeah, the two advantages you get from raid0 is larger capacity and much higher sequential I/o which is not important to most users.
