Raid 0 performance: 2x WD Black Caviar vs 4x Spinrite?
Oct 4, 2009, 10:17 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.

one spinpoint F3 should be faster than one WD Black 640GB (500GB/platter vs 320GB/platter)
