For home use an SSD Raid makes not much sense.
- You need all SSDs the same size
- I one drive dies, all is gone
- Also backup and restore can cause trouble when moving drives to another hardware config.
- Mostly 240+ GB drive have full performance.
For easy use I would recommend just using a single huge drive! SSDs are fast enough and don't need RAID 0.
Don't forget to make backups.
I like Samsung SSDs:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147190http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147194
The 840 is meant for home use, the 840 Pro is for enthusiasts and pros, has best in class performance.
