Crucial m4 128GB + m500 128GB in RAID ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I currently have a Crucial m4 128GB, but I want to buy a second 128GB drive and put them in RAID. Crucial replaced the m4 by the newer m500. Would I still be able to put them in RAID 0 or I really need the same drives ?

I think the key is that they need to be the same speed, but I've had some trouble doing that. Maybe hunt around on Amazon and Newegg warehouse to try and find the same model. Maybe even eBay.

You can putt them in RAID but i think you will see lower result in 4k reads and that is more important sector.I suggest you to find same model,even refurbished or used
I did some testing with same brand,but not model number of DDR sticks and if they were not exactly same they give me worst result.
I know its not same,but you can see what different kind of hardware on one split place can do.

This, but honestly one M500 is enough for your OS + Programs. Maybe sell the M4, or put it in a laptop or just as a games drive? Or for just a few games smile.gif
