Another Raid questions thread...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm considering going to raid but I have a few questions about it:

1. Why is Raid so enthralling that it keeps it’s users from ever considering a single drive solution again. (I’ve read this a number of times in the forum)

2. I probably don’t use more than a total of 100GB on my system, that’s everything, so I don’t have a need for a lot of storage space or anything. That being said what kind of HD combo would be best for me? I don’t want to spend much $ but I don’t want to pay a lot of $ per GB either. It’s a tough balance to strike I understand but would something like a pair of used 36G Raptors work well?

3. Last and least what do you like most about having a Raid setup?

Thanks all!

used hard drives? ehh...*cringes*
if they're in good order then yes they would work good.
or you could get 3 or 4 of these and raid them in 0, 1, or 5 depending on what kind of perks you're looking at getting.
i like my 4x 36gb raptors in raid-0 because i load into windows xp in under 15 seconds from the pressing of my power button. adobe photoshop in less than 4 seconds. things like that. i backup all my data on externals and dvds.
