RAID 0 mirror vs striping

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Quick question. What is better for Read time performance, striping or mirroring in RAID 0. Which setup will load programs faster?

RAID0 = Striping
RAID1 = Mirroring

Theres no RAID0 = mirroring

Striping = faster. Mirror - same speed, but double data for safety

Yea.. Mirroring is for businesses that want to use 2 hard drives and have the same data on them incase a hard drive dies.

Stripping uses both hard drives together to nearly double performance.


Mirroring would only give you the capacity of 1 hard drive, and the exact same speed. Stripping will give you the capacity of both hard drives and nearly double the speed of 1 hard drive.

or people that cant afford to lose their data

Thanks for the info. I was thinking that RAID 1 wouldve been faster because the data was mirrored and easier to read. Will give 0 a shot then. Any recomendations for a good non-raptor HD to Raid with on board Nvidia?

or people that backup their music and pictures every once in a while. you people talk like RAID0 is a disaster waiting to happen. everyone should backup their important data, whether they have RAID or not.

The Seagate 7200.10's are INTENSE... they pwn, go for them

@MrBungle It's true, my raid-0 has failed like 6 times in several months, with vista!, and intel just came out with some new drivers, I think my problems are now fixed

EDIT: i do like my new Samsung SpinPoint T Series better than the Seagates though. they have better specs and run very quietly.
