    Hmm two 120GB's for $438 or one 240GB for $499? Even if you try to justify that price due to it being a single drive with all that storage it doesn't make up the fact that superior performance can be had with RAID 0.
    Or if one prefers not putting all their eggs in one basket two drives are less likely to both fail compared to a one.

    Glad i waited so long for this technology to mature... my next build will have a couple of something like these in raid 0.
