Raid 0 performance: 2x WD Black Caviar vs 4x Spinrite? Tags: Western Digital Caviar NAS / RAID Storage Last response: October 4, 2009 11:15 PM in Storage Share l0de October 4, 2009 10:17:27 PM As title states, I'm wondering if it makes any sort of sense to go with 4 x (or 3x if the jump from 3 to 4 is negligable) Samsung Spinrite F3s Over a couple of 640gb WD caviar Blacks? The spinrites would be $50 more for four. Can anyone give me any sort of numbers as to what I'd experience with either config? This is for a video machine, I pursue a regular backup cycle and data loss \ failure isn't really a worry.
