It is great for sequential benchmarks, but that is not what we do in real life. The normal desktop user will do lots of small random reads and writes. A task that a SSD is very good at, but not raid-0. Save up for a ssd. 4745454b a b G Storage May 31, 2011 11:46:08 PM Agreed. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
