Hi all,

I do not fully understand the performance gains of two hard drives in RAID-0; is the only advantage that you have (theoretically) double the bandwidth?

How would two well performing 7200s in RAID-0 compare to one 10,000 Raptor?

Best,

Given that the new Raptor X (150gb) is only getting around 70mb/s average (Here - page 7) I'd still stand by my statement - when they arrive (now delayed unfortunately :( ) The new seagates (7200.11) will be 'quicker' and cheaper. ;)

(Since the Raptor claims 80mb/s that means just on the claimed numbers the Seagate is 25% faster sustained transfer :eek: )
Even with regards to seek time?

The benchmark results of the Seagate is good, but outputting 28-34dB during seek? No thanks!

The Raptor tops at 27dB during seek (at 1meter for both of them, stats from silentpcreview.com).

I think I may just go back to basics with a good old Western Digital :confused:
