A minor drawback maybe but the good outways the bad
yeah i know, but thats because of the data stripe used for the raided drives...gotta love defragging every 4 hours
haha, i defrag everyday so i really have nothing to worry about, writing is probably 5-10% faster, so ill agree that its not too noticible, but its there. It really does help with a lot though.
