This time, the test setup does not correspond to our standard storage testing system (Celeron 500, i815 chipset). On the one hand, an Athlon 1200 is a more up to date configuration, and most of you expect results that reflect the real advantages you can get out of each RAID system. On the other hand, the Celeron 500 could have blurred possible differences between the three products.
Data Transfer Performance
As you can see, any setups using two striped drives results in pretty fast performance. Using two more drives does not speed up the maximum transfer rate by much, but it will raise the minimum rate - which is quite important for video editing tasks.
