Raid 0 or bigger?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have a C300 64gb. Should I get another and Raid 0? Or should I sell this one after a reformat and get a 128gb? I think both would be the same price total since selling a used c300 would be bleh for selling.

I need a bigger drive >.< already down to 30gb D:

I would get another 64GB and just use as another drive without RAID. TRIM is too good to lose. And C300 degrade quickly without it. Or if it is possible to get 128GB for the same price, I guess go for it. You would get better write speeds but read speeds will be the same.

im down to 20. it's fine. what games / apps are you putting onto it?

Basically, if I sold my 64gb I can probably get 110 for it. That'd be 250 - 110 = 140. roughly around the same price as getting another one. Actually, I think I might sell this current one and get the m4 128gb :?

Edit: Actually it's only been 6 days since I bought it so I can get a refund with 15% restocking fee for a total of $129! Then I can get an m4 128gb ^.^

no dont get the m4. it seems to perform less than the c300

if u want a new generation ssd then grab the vertex 3, but dont expect that to be cheap, especially since japan will influence prices on NAND.

I would hold off on ssd's for a while until the market stabilizes or get a c300. ssd's arent worth it from 1 to another. youd barely notice any real world differences, theyre that fast already.

K, I'm refunding the 64gb and getting c300 128gb since Raid 0 is bad for SSD cuz of TRIM :| I'll be paying $116 more for it.

Is losing TRIM for raid0 really not recommended? I would've thought having two c300 64gb in raid0 will offer alot more performance therefore a good choice? (Maybe cuz I don't really know exactly what TRIM does) :3 I'm an SSD noobi

Edit:
Eh... yeah, I think I'll get the c300 128gb because this is my only chance since no one really buys used ssd. Might as well go for it, and Raid 0 two spinpoint f3s.

Edit 2:
On second thought, I think I'll get a second 64gb later on. I don't really 'need' write speed upgrade with the 128gb. and if I get two, I always have the option to raid0 later on

I guess I'll just go for raid0 spinpoint f3 for now +rep guys^

C300 is a smoking fast SSD to begin with. Do you think you will actually notice the performance increase in going from a single SSD to RAIDed SSDs? I will eat my hat if you can actually tell in day-to-day usage (IE everything but benchmarks).

I know, I know, this is OCN and we go for max performance in everything we do but I don't think I would ditch TRIM for higher theoretical I/O performance.
At long last...

Do you think I'll notice a difference with 1x Spinpoint F3 and Raid 0 spinpoint?

I'd rather not raid...at all. unless it's for redundancy

Only good thing for f3 raid is the speed of transfers/read/write.

Why get that raided when u have a 128gb ssd. What do u want to put on the f3's that u want to be faster? it's pretty fast as is.

then u have to take the risk that if the array fails, you lose all info on the f3's.

no matter how many u raid together, the access times wont be as low as an ssd- and that's one of the main reasons ssd's shine against hdd...even if raided.

You wont notice any real life gains. i wouldnt do it
