SATA RAID vs one 10k SATA drive Tags: Hard Drives SATA NAS / RAID Storage Last response: August 3, 2004 8:54 PM in Storage Share php_professor August 1, 2004 10:08:09 PM Would it be better to buy two 7200 RPM SATA hard drives and make a RAID out of them or just buy one 10,000 RPM SATA hard drive? Thanks for any advice!

I went with one 74 GB raptor and one 7200 rpm drive for data. Works good. s signature has been formatted to fit your scr php_professor August 2, 2004 12:53:31 AM Huh?
