Why not just use RAID 5? You get the best of Raid 0 and 1 but with more storage space. Sure you need at least three drives for it, but it still is a much better option then Raid 0+1.

BTW I noticed that Ice Road Truckers are no longer hogging up the History Channel. Thank god. I was getting sick of seeing the same episode over and over again. Same thing for Deadliest catch. Hours of the same crap on the Discovery channel. I was getting ready to have the cable disconnected.

Not sure how that relates, Keith, frankly.

For the price of 2 or more raptors you could have 2x 1TB Samsung F1 7200rpm hard drives in Raid 0 stipped array. I would'nt even bother raiding them though as they are faster as single drives than some drives in a raid. I love the Samsung F1 and I can't imagine getting anything smaller.

If I had to build a network server or Internet server then yes I would go with the Raptors as they are cheaper than SCSI harddrives and the required interface cards. If you have ever been on a slow network with an even slower server then you know why fast hard drives with Native Command queing is important but for my gaming rig I want speed and tons of storage for my games, movies and music. I have nearly 80gigs of music but nearly 600gigs of movies so lots of storage is very important and the Raptors just can't compete.
