[Maxishine] 2x VelociRaptor (RAID-0) - Page 4

post #31 of 43
I have noticed Games Installation and load times are faster, i Installed CS and it was 1min faster than the old raptor, it's not worth the $399 asking price though.

oh


Either way yeah, its way too much. And now that we know that their RAID0 performance is kind of fishy, thats even less of a reason to buy one.

although i'm sure he just forgot.

Not worth the money for me- i already got 2x7200.10 250 (what he tested, actually)- seems wiser to save the money for a nehalem setup

They're MUCH more bang-per-buck than a SAS setup, though; for a 5k rig or budget server, these would kick ass!

I think getting two good 7200.11 drives in RAID0 is the best option in terms of Price/Performance.

The new Raptors are cool, but they hit your wallet hard with no huge benefit.
