Sell my 256 SSD for Raid 0? Tags: Hard Drives SSD Corsair NAS / RAID Storage Last response: September 22, 2010 1:04 AM in Storage Share Sabiancym September 21, 2010 7:56:43 PM I currently have a Corsair P256 SSD in my system. It's nice, but I really wasn't blown away and now I'm thinking about changing. First: Do people buy used SSDs? Or is there a problem with degradation? Second: Would two velociraptors in raid 0 be comparable speedwise to one P256 SSD?

Also, you increase your risk with data lost by going with a RAID0 setup. I would keep your current setup of the SSD and maybe upgrade your secondary drive with a newer single 500GB platter based hard drive (Samsung Spinpoint F3, Seagate 7200.12 for example). m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
