When raid 0 is used is there a significant difference in performance? is it worth buying two harddisks? (or more for that matter?) If one drive goes down in the array will the others continue function without the failed drive? Over all are those who use a raid 0 configuration satisfied with their choice?

RAID 0 improves transfer rates, but not access times - so it's better for copying files but it doesn't do much to speed up things like booting or starting applications.

If you loose either disk in a RAID 0 set then you loose ALL the data on BOTH disks.
