By the way, might you possibly have an opinion on whether RAIDing would be worth it or not? biggrin.gif
Worth it how? You already stated 2x capacity and a little speed advantage. There is also more data risk so you need to have a current backup solution.

Consumer price =/= Enterprise prices lol. They are different markets.

Also, SanDisk is a much larger company. Probably better to MSI so they went with them. Really, it doesn't matter.

Well, my main concern, is, I probably should say, would be how 4k random read and random write would be effected under RAID. I found through google search, someone having two 120GB mSATA Mushkins in their Alienware in RAID configuration. His tests shown that the 4K Random reads and writes were better over a single SSD. However I heard also how RAID hurts 4K Random Read and Write potential?


Well, as it is, I do kinda some what backup some things once and a while onto the HDD part... I don't back up like I should, though. Are you talking about an automated solution or the kind that I need to do myself more often? biggrin.gif
